NASCAR can remove a Charter for a team in the bottom 3 of owners standings, none were removed in 2017

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

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)
