      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 has 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.


      • After the 5th race of the season, the current season OWNERS points are used:
        #1) - First 35 by current Owner Points [team does not have to attempt all the races]
        #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
        #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 Sprint 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 provisional's 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.
