NASCAR announces qualifying order changes
The qualifying order for the NASCAR Sprint Cup series will be
set only on the first practice session, starting with next week’s
race in Pocono.
NASCAR had previously used all of its practice sessions to
determine the qualifying order, which will remain grouped from the
slowest cars going first and the fastest cars last.
NASCAR also says it’ll no longer separate cars that are locked
into a race and ones that must qualify on speed.
The Truck and Nationwide series won’t separate those cars,
either, and the changes in those circuits will start will start
But the Truck and Nationwide events will stick with using all of
their sessions to set qualifying orders.
