Qualifying Notes, Greg Biffle, and more....

Qualifying for the Sunday got canceled by rain which means Kyle Busch gets the poll with Jeff Burton starting in second.   Jason Leffler and Tony Raines were the only two drivers to not make the field.

Forbes.com has a couple of lists out.  One list looks at the highest paid drivers which includes Juan Pablo Montoya in the list making 111 million bucks.

The second list looks at the most expensive teams which has Hendrick Motorsports at the top and the most expensive cars which includes Jamie McMurray in the top ten.  They have a great graphic up looking at Jeff Gordon and the costs to sponsor just a small piece of his car.

Greg Biffle is now saying that by the end of next week he is going to sign a 3-year extension with the Roush Fenway organization.

Mike Helton in a meeting on Friday with the NASCAR drivers says that he wants the drivers to think of the fans first.

Denny Hamlin says that NASCAR is looking into the heat problems cars are having after many drivers complained at the end of the Pocono race.
