  • Ramblings - Kansas Jimmie Johnson took the Bud Pole today at Kansas Speedway for Sunday's Lifelock 400 with a time of 30.846 (175.063 mph) for his second top-spot in a row and 3rd of the season. This was career pole #12 for the Lowe's Chevy driver.
    He'll be joined on the front-row by Matt Kenseth....original second place starter Ryan Newman didn't fare too well in post-qual tech (the roof height was too low on the #12 alltel Dodge) so he's kicked back to 42nd.
    For Kenseth, this is his best starting spot since he led 'em to the green at Atlanta last October....but that race was lined up by points. This is his best starting spot on time since he had the pole here in October of 2005!
    Scott Riggs (3rd) has his best starting spot since he lined up 3rd at Richmond in May.
    Dale Earnhardt Jr (6th) has his best starting spot since he had the pole at Pocono in August.
    Dale Jarrett (13th) has his best starting spot since he had the outside pole at Talladega last October!
    Jeremy Mayfield (26th) has his best starting spot since he timed in 20th at Chicagoland in July.
    STREAKIN....Jimmie Johnson has 9 Top-10 starts in a row. Denny Hamlin has 4 Top-10 starts in the last 5 races. Greg Biffle has 4 Top-10 starts in the last 5 races. Martin Truex Jr has 4 Top-10 starts in the last 5 races.
    Only 47 cars on hand this week....four on the Trouble Train. A. J. Allmendinger, Ward Burton, Brian Vickers, and Jon Wood get the weekend off.(Stock Car Fans)(9-28-2007)

  • Fastest Qualifier by Manufacturer::
    Chevy: #48-Johnson, 175.063, starts 1st
    Dodge: #12-Newman, 174.893, starts 3rd
    Ford: #17-Kenseth, 174.263, starts 9th
    Toyota: #55-Waltrip, 172.983, starts 12th

  • How to Calculate Track Speeds: use the formula Speed = Distance divided by Time. Distance is Track Length, and Lap Time into Hours. Once hour is 3600 seconds, so the calculation for a 48 second lap at Daytona(2.5 miles) would be: Speed = 2.5 x (3600/48), = 2.5 x 75 = 187.500mph. For a 19 second lap at Bristol(.533 miles): Speed = .533 x (3600/19), = .533 x 189.474 = a speed of 100.990mph

  • How to break a tie during qualifying? (same speed/time) When drivers are tied for a starting spot during qualifying, it is broken by owners points standings(not drivers).

    • Determining Race Line-Ups - Top 35 Guarantee: At the start of the 2005 season, NASCAR instituted a new procedure for establishing the starting race field in the Nextel Cup Series [NNCS]. NASCAR 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 NNCS still will be determined by qualifying speed, the new system will assure the highest-ranked 35 positions of the NNCS OWNER [not Driver] championship points that have entered the event prior to the entry deadline [usually 13 days before the day of the race] 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 [36-42] will be assigned to those drivers with the fastest qualifying speeds whose car owners are not among the top 35. The final starting position [43rd] – the champion’s provisional – can be utilized by a car owner whose driver is a current or past Nextel Cup champion who participated as a driver during the current of previous 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 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 Nextel Cup, the top 35 in the NNCS of the previous 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’ current Rule Book.(NASCAR PR)
      Simple: so the field is set by speed to where the 7th fastest non-top 35 driver is on speed. The any drivers in the top 35 of OWNERS [not drivers points] are placed to the 42nd spot. The 43rd spot is used for the most recent past Cup champion NOT already in the field from being in the top-35 in owners points or one of the seven no top-35. If their is not past champ for the 43rd spot, it goes to the next fastest [8th fastest driver]

    • What happens if qualifying gets rained out?

      After the 5th race of the season, the current season OWNERS points are used:
      #1) - First 35 by current Owner Points
      #2) - Last Years Cup Champ or the Event Champion if not already in the field
      #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 [provisional not used/charged]
      #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 7-13 days before the race)

    • Past Champions Limited To 6 Provisional Berths in Cup: NASCAR announced an update to the past champion’s provisional rule in the Nextel Cup Series for 2007. Beginning this season, a past champion’s provisional may be used by an eligible driver a maximum of six times over the course of the season. In addition, a team with a past champion eligible driver may only use this provisional a maximum of six times during a season. Previously, there was no limit on usage of the past champion’s provisional over the course of the 36-race season. The provisional gives the eligible driver the 43rd and final starting position in the race field. "As NASCAR seeks to place more emphasis on competition, we have decided the time is right to limit the number of provisionals allowed,” said NASCAR Vice President of Competition Robin Pemberton. “We believe this revision brings the provisional policy in line with the continued growth of the sport.”(NASCAR PR)
      This is only for a team/driver OUTSIDE the top-35 in owners points, drivers whose team is in the top-35 in owners points, would already be guaranteed in the field and not need the Past Champions Provisional.(1-31-2007)
