No number in front of driver means they have already qualified for the Bud Shootout or the Qualifying Race.

There will be up to 15 drivers in the Bud Shootout(including the Qualifier Winner)

There will be up to 19 drivers in the pre-Bud Shootout qualifying race

at Daytona in February 2000..(why up to? some drivers eligible may not have a ride, retired or left the series, such as Robbie Gordon in 1997-1998)

15) Winner of the Qualifying Race

FOOTNOTE: (A) John Andretti was fastest in second round at the spring Bristol race as the team does not carry the Bud decal and is not eligible, Joe Nemechek, 2nd fastest will get that honor but he has since won a pole at Daytona in July

FOOTNOTE: (B) John Andretti won the pole at Phoenix but the team does not carry the Bud decal and is not eligible for the Bud Shootout, Jeff Gordon, 2nd fastest got that honor but he has won seven poles and is in the Bud Shootout already

Table Note: The number in front of the driver means how many drivers are in the Bud Shootout/Qualifying race. That means there are 4 drivers eligible for the Bud Shootout at that stage of the season. if there is no number, it means that driver either won a pole or was already 2nd round fastest.

Bud Shootout Pole: On the Thursday before the Race, the drivers choose their starting positions in a draw


The rules: The 'Bud Shootout', there is going to be a last chance race for all the fastest second round qualifiers instead of the wild card drawing, it will be for 25 laps, and the winner will get to run in the "Bud Shootout". Only laps run under green for both races will count. The overall winner will take home over $100,000! The Busch driver with the most poles won in the season does not run in the Bud Shootout anymore. Starting in 1997 the driver got a bonus instead.

Second Round Qualifier: The driver with the second round fastest time at each race will run in the Bud Shootout Qualifying Race(they do NOT have to make the race). The winner of the race tranfers to the Bud Shootout at the end of the field

The old Rules: The driver with the second round fastest time at each race gets his name entered into a wild card drawing to be held during banquet week in New York. The driver chosen will then be a wildcard entry(Rusty Wallace was in 1997, Dave Marcis in 1996, Jimmy Means in 1995).

NOTE: This is a DRIVERs race, so if Driver A leaves Team A and goes to Team B, then it'll be Driver A in the Team B car and the Team A car is not eligible unless they get a new driver who is eligible
