        #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)
