[August 09, 2008]  WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) -- For the fourth time in five years, Sprint Cup qualifying has been canceled at Watkins Glen International.

It began raining just as the Cup cars were about to hit the track for their first practice at noon, and although the track was nearly dry by 2:45 p.m., NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp said the day's schedule did not afford enough time.

A Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series race was scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
