      #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
