Quick Quals Facts
All entered cars are guaranteed one four-lap qualifying attempt, and once those have been completed the team can elect to make another qualifying run – but there’s a twist. The team must choose between one of two different ‘lanes’ – either the normal lane or the fast lane.
Teams that put cars in the normal lane may attempt to improve their qualifying time without withdrawing their established time.
Choosing the fast lane means getting priority ahead of cars in the normal lane. The fast lane is primarily for cars without a qualifying time. However, a car in this lane with an established time must withdraw the time before making the next four-lap run – and obviously that comes with some risk. Sometimes the reward pays off, sometimes it doesn’t.
Each driver in Sunday’s Fast Nine Shootout will receive one (1) set of Firestone tires to be utilized during the pre-Qualification practice, and one (1) additional set for their Qualification attempt. Both sets of tires must be returned to Firestone at the conclusion of each session
For all qualifying attempts, cars must add a minimum of three (3) gallons of fuel from the qualifications fuel tank located in pit lane.
