Teams in RED and with an asterisk must compete for the four remaining positions in the field each week
which will be determined through normal qualifying procedures as outlined in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Rule Book.
The rest of the teams have Charters. Each Charter team owner has a guaranteed entry into the field of every NASCAR Sprint Cup Series points race

(i) = driver not running for 2016 Sprint Cup Series Championship Drivers Points

Ties are broken as follows:
1) Owners Points
2) Best finishes, most wins, 2nds, 3rds and so on until the tie is broken
3) If tie still remains, then the team with the highest position first breaks the tie
(so if two are ties, both have a win, then the team who won first gets the spot)

SOME PROCEDURES and RULES NOTES about Qualifying

  • NASCAR's Competition Department distributes entry blanks for each race to owners in the series.
    Those entries must be returned before the deadline, which is set 13 days in advance of the event.
    When the entry is received by Competition, the car is added to the entry list.
    There is an inspection fee for each entry.
