    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 Happy Hour Practice Speeds - NASCAR.com.(5-13-2005)


    • New Procedure for Determining Race Line-Ups - No more provisionals [accept the champ]: NASCAR will institute a new procedure for establishing the starting race field in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series effective with the 2005 season, NASCAR officials announced today. NASCAR has revamped the system by simplifying the procedure with teams no longer accruing provisionals throughout the season to gain entry into the starting fields. While starting positions one through 42 in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series still will be determined by qualifying speed, the new system will assure the highest-ranked 35 positions of the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series owner championship points that have entered the event prior to the entry deadline one of those starting positions in the field, providing they have made an attempt to qualify [which usually means the team at least practiced and made an effort to qualify]. The remaining seven positions will be assigned to those drivers with the fastest qualifying speeds whose car owners are not among the top 35. The final starting position – the champion’s provisional – can be utilized by a car owner whose driver is a current or past NASCAR NEXTEL Cup champion who participated as a driver during their 2004 season and was entered in the event for that owner in that car prior to the entry deadline. If there is more than one series champion vying for the position, it will be given to the most recent series champion. If the final provisional starting position – 43rd in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup – is not filled by a current or past series champion, it will be assigned to the next eligible car owner according to qualifying results. Through the first five races of the season for the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup, the top 35 in the NNCS of the 2004 owner championship points entered in the event prior to the entry deadline will be assured one of the 42 starting positions in the field, provided they have made an attempt to qualify. From the sixth race on, the current owner championship points will be used to determine the top 35 each race week. In the event that conditions prevent qualifying from being run, starting positions will be assigned according to the respective series’ 2005 Rule Book.(NASCAR PR)

    • The Impounding Rules:
      Post-qualifying impound procedure will be used in all three national series
      Cost-containment measure for teams
      Following qualifying, starting field will be impounded until race day
      Teams will not be permitted to work on their cars unless for special circumstances and authorized by NASCAR officials
      New procedure will alter the traditional race weekend schedule
      Traditional race weekend (Friday-Sunday): two hours practice on Friday, qualifying Saturday and then the cars would be impounded immediately following post-qualifying inspection
      Nextel Cup events using the procedure [21 of 36]: California (both races); Atlanta (both - Jayski Note: not sure about this, Atlanta put out a PR saying they would NOT go to the new rule); Bristol (both - Jayski Note: last I heard, the April race still would be a 3-day deal with qualifying on Friday, race on Sunday, the August race is Saturday night); Phoenix (both); Darlington; Richmond (both); Pocono (both); Michigan (both); Daytona (July); New Hampshire (both); Watkins Glen; and Kansas.(Jayski Note: also Indiabapolis will probbaly use the rule as they already hold qualifying on Saturday's for a Sunday race]
      Additional events may be added during the season
      All Busch and Craftsman Truck events will use the impound procedure (FoxSports)(2-12-2005)
