Qualfiying Procedures:

1. The fastest 33 qualifiers start the race, regardless of when or on which day they qualify. 2. The pole position is decided by the fastest qualifier on the first day, or the fastest qualifier after one trip through the original qualifying line, whichever comes LAST. 3. Each car can make three qualification attempts. When a car completes a four-lap, 10-mile qualification attempt, its speed becomes official. The car may not requalify. The driver, if the car is bumped or withdrawn, may qualify in another car. 4. When the field is full at 33 cars, the slowest, regardless of its position in the provisional lineup, is always "on the bubble" and may be bumped by a faster qualifier. A successful qualifier is always inserted into the field according to its speed ranking within the day on which it posted its official time and speed. This process continues until the allotted time for qualifications expires.
