    Drivers in RED will be required to qualify on time/speed, not in top 35

    Drivers in MAROON will be required to qualify on time/speed, not in top 35
    BUT have a past champions provisional available if needed, only one is used, so if there are two or more past champs
    the driver who has won the championship most recently, gets the spot.

    Drivers in RED will be required to qualify on time/speed, not in top 35

    Drivers in MAROON will be required to qualify on time/speed, not in top 35
    BUT have a past champions provisional available if needed, only one is used, so if there are two or more past champs
    the driver who has won the championship most recently, gets the spot.

    Or see Practice Speeds - NASCAR.com.(8-19-2005)

      #2) - Previous Years Cup Champ or the Event Champion if already NOT in the field by step 1
      #3) - Car Owners whose team has won in the previous and current season not already in the field
      #4) - Drivers who have won in the previous and current season not already in the field
      #5) - Past Nextel Cup Champions not in by 1 thru 4
      #6) - Qualifying Attempts with Owners points as the tie breaker
