-->

In 2011, the qualifying order will be based on practice speeds,
with each driver’s best lap in the first practice determining qualifying spots,
with the top-35 and non-top 35 drivers mixed in from slowest to fastest.

If qualifying is rained out, the order of the starting lineup would be determined by first practice speed.
Who actually gets in the field is based primarily on owners points and other criteria in the rule book.
The top 35 are set, then the non top 35 drivers with most attempts, etc
ties broken by owners points position, then the whole field is set by 1st practice speeds
NASCAR holds a draw for teams without any owners points [not making a race this season].
