# Sunoco Rookie of the Year Contender


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 by 1st practice speed, then the go-or-go homers are in by race attempts
ties broken by owners points position, those eight drivers are then set by 1st practice speeds, with fastest 36th
NASCAR holds a draw for teams without any owners points [not making a race this season].
