    HOW TO MAKE THE DAYTONA 500

    Step 1) Positions 1-2: set by first round qualifying, the fastest two drivers.

    Step 2) Positions 3-30: set by the results of the Twin 125's, 28 drivers, not already in by step 1.

    Step 3) Positions 31-36: the fastest six drivers from qualifying 1 qand 2 not in already from steps 1 and 2.

    Step 4) Positions 37-42: the highest drivers in the previous season's OWNERS points standing not already in the race.

    Step 5) Postion 43: to a former Winston Cup Champion not already in by the criteria set in steps 1 thru 4. If there is no former champ not in, the next driver whose team in the highest in the previous OWNERS points standings

  • The Daytona 500 has a different qualifying format. Only the two fastest drivers secure starting spots for the 500 in that first round. Drivers can stand on Saturday's speed or try to go faster in second-round qualifying (looks like there will not be a 2nd round in 2003). Once a driver elects to go again, his previous speed is wiped off the slate and the new speed becomes his official mark. After qualifying ends on Monday, the speeds will be used to set the lineups for Thursday's Gatorade 125-mile qualifying races. Odd numbers -- first, third, fifth and so on -- go in the first race, even numbers in the second. Results from the 125s will set positions 3 through 30 for the 500. The next six spots in the 500 field will go to the drivers with the six best qualifying speeds who have not yet made the field. The final seven spots go to provisional starters based on last season's car owner points standings. The second-fastest driver is assured of starting on the outside of the front row for the 500. The third-fastest, however, could start the main event as far back as 31st depending on how he does in the 125-miler.
