Eldora Race Format

Eldora Race Format

  • Two-lap, single-truck qualifying for starting positions in the qualifying races.
  • There will be five qualifying races. Only green flag laps count in those races.
  • The top five trucks in qualifying will start on the pole for their respective qualifying races with four locked-in trucks (top 20 in driver points) starting in each qualifying race.
  • Five trucks from each qualifying race transfer to the feature – four locked-in trucks and one non-locked-in truck.
  • The Last Chance Race’s lineup will be based on finishing position from the qualifying races. This race will be 15 laps and only green flag laps will count. The top four finishers from this race advance to the feature and will start that event in positions 26-29. The 30th starting position in the feature goes to the most recent past series champion. If the position is not filled by an eligible champion, it will go to the next highest finishing Truck from the Last Chance Race.
  • The feature race will be 150 laps and divided into segments of 60, 50 and 40 laps with competition cautions at the breaks on Laps 60 and 110.
  • Caution laps will not count during the competition cautions and positions cannot be improved on pit road. Teams that do not pit during the competition cautions will start ahead of teams that elected to pit.
  • Each qualifying race has been extended to 10 laps. Last year’s qualifying races were eight laps.
  • Pit stops during competition cautions are optional. They were mandatory last year.
  • A random draw will determine the qualifying order. Last year, practice speeds dictated the qualifying order.
  • Owner points will be awarded to the top five team owners whose trucks do not advance to the feature race. Last year, teams that failed to advance to the feature received no points.
  • The top 20 in owners points entering the event will again have a guaranteed starting spot.

NASCAR Introduces Special Paint Scheme ElementsFor Chase

get-attachment.aspxNASCAR Introduces Special Paint Scheme Elements

For Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup™ Championship Contenders

New Color Schemes Celebrate Members of the Chase Grid

 

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (July 15, 2014) – Celebrating the accomplishments of those drivers who will contend for the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship, NASCAR has released several new elements to the paint schemes of race cars making the 16-driver Chase Grid.

 

Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup-eligible cars will have the roof number, the front splitter / front fascia and the windshield header colored yellow, as well as have a Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup logo affixed to the front-quarter panel of their race car.

 

As part of NASCAR’s emphasis on winning races all season long, this celebratory paint scheme will be placed on a driver’s car to begin the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, at Chicagoland Speedway on Sept. 14. Once a driver is eliminated after one of the Chase’s first three rounds, the paint scheme will be removed from the car. Please refer to the graphic below for a visual representation of these changes.

 

 

These changes serve as a visible symbol of the new Chase format. In addition, the paint scheme elements will ensure that fans are able to easily identify each championship contender as NASCAR’s playoffs progress.

 

Announced by NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France in January, the new championship format expands the Chase field to 16 drivers, up from 12 in previous years, and implements a new round-by-round advancement format that ultimately will reward a battle-tested, worthy champion.

 

A victory in the first 26 races all but guarantees a berth in the 10-race Chase, which will air exclusively on the ESPN family of networks. The number of championship drivers in contention for the championship decreases after every three Chase races, culminating with four drivers racing for the title at Homestead-Miami Speedway in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship, scheduled for November 16.

 

The next NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race will be the Crown Royal Presents the John Wayne Walding 400 at The Brickyard live from Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday, July 27. The race will air at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN, IMS Radio and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, with additional coverage on NASCAR.com
