    • IMPOUND RULES on my 2005 Impound Rules page.

    • Results: for results, links, owners/drivers points (after each race back thru the season)
      see my:
      2005 Nextel Cup Race Results
      2004 Nextel Cup Race Results

    • Weather -- IF qualifying is rained out, the field would be set as follows (per the rulebook):

      #1) - First 35 by current Owner Points
      #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
      #7) - Qualifying Order Position
      (all above apply as long as the team was entered by the entry deadline - usually 13 days before the race)
