    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.(9-9-2005)


    • 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)
