Daytona500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Qualifying Procedure 2016

The most prestigious motor race Daytona 500  is a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series motor race held every year at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida in the month of February. It is the first of two Daytona races organize every year, the second being the Coke Zero 400. The Coke Zero 400 sponsored by Coca-Cola is an annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stock car race at Daytona International Speedway. The Daytona 500 was first held in 1959 along with the opening of the speedway and from 1982, it has been the season-opening race of the Cup series.

The Daytona 500 is considered as the most popular and important race on the NASCAR calendar, carrying by far the largest purse. Championship points in Daytona series awarded are equal to that of any other Sprint Cup race. The Daytona 500 is the series’ first race of the year which is quite unique in sports as most of the championships or other major events are organized at the end of the season rather than the start.  Since 1995,  the television ratings in U.S. for the Daytona 500 have been the highest for any auto race of the year, the traditional leader has been surpassed  and  the Indianapolis 500 which in turn greatly surpasses the Daytona 500  in-track attendance and international viewing.  The Daytona 500 race in the year 2006 has been known to attract the sixth largest average live global TV audience of any sporting event that year with 20 million viewers.

This race is sometimes known as the Super Bowl of Stock Car Racing or Great American Race. From the year1971 to 2011, the Daytona race was associated with Presidents Day weekend, that  takes  place on the Sunday before the third Monday in February. Since the first race, all 57 running   of the Daytona 500 has been held in the month of February. At the Beginning of the year   2012, the race was pushed up a week, to the last Sunday in February. In the year 2012, Because of the inclement weather conditions on February 26, the Daytona 500 was postponed until the evening of Monday, February 27. In the year 2013, Daytona 500 was held on February 24, it is the first time the race was held on the last Sunday of February.

This year Daytona 500 is going to be the 58th edition in spectacular form. This year, there will be upgraded amenities, wider seats, and unmatched sightlines make for a more immersive experience for the audience at racing’s richest tradition. The Experience of the DAYTONA 500 will be like never before as 58 years of history on the high banks will be showcased in the world’s first motorsports stadium. At a place where the timeline unfolds like the pages of history, a new chapter is set to be written at the World Centre of Racing.

ORIGINS
The Speedway of Daytona International is 2.5 miles (4 km) long and 500-mile race requires 200 laps to complete the race. However, after covering half of the official distance (100 laps and 250 miles (400 km)), the race is considered has been completed. The race is the direct successor of shorter races held on the Daytona Beach Road Course. This long square was partially on the sand and also on the highway near the beach. Earlier events featured 200-mile (320 km) races with stock cars.  In the year 1959, a 500-mile (805 km) stock car race was held at Daytona International Speedway. The race was the second 500-mile NASCAR race, following the annual Southern 500, and has been held every year since. By 1961, the race began to be referred to as the Daytona500, by which it is still commonly known.
Four times due to rain, the race has been shortened (in 1965, 1966, 2003, and 2009) and once due to the energy crisis that happened in 1974. The race has gone past 500 miles on seven different occasions (2005, 2006, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2015).Since the adaptation of the green–white–checker finish rule was done in 2004.

Qualifying Procedure

The qualifying procedure for the Daytona 500 is unique. Drivers get multiple opportunities to qualify for the season-opening race, quite different from the usual format of one qualifying session per event. Some teams have to race their way into the Daytona 500 field. The first row in the race is set by a timed round of qualifying, held one week before the race.Prior to the year  2003, this was two rounds; but prior to 2001, it was three. The left part of the field is set by two separate qualifying races, the first one  was 100 miles (160 km) from 1959 to 1967, 125 miles (201 km) from 1969 to 2004; and other was 150 miles (240 km) with two-lap overtime, if necessary, beginning in 2005. The top two drivers from the qualifying races who were not in the top 35 in owner points were given spots on the field, and the rest of the field was set by the finishing order of the duels, with guaranteed spots to those in the top 35. The remaining spots, 40 to 43, were filled by top qualifying times of those not already in the field from the qualifying race. If there was a previous NASCAR champion without a spot, he would get one of those four spots; otherwise, the fourth fastest car was added to the field.

Till to 2005 – after started again in 2013 – top two cars were set, the top fourteen cars in the qualifying races advance to the field, and then between six years(1998–2003), eight years(1995–97, 2004) or 10 years(until 1994)cars which are fastest do not advance from the qualifying race are added, then cars in the top 35 in owner points not locked into the race, and then driver with the championship provisional, except for 1985 when no such car was eligible for a provisional starting spot, the only time that happened no such car was eligible in the Daytona 500 from when the provisional was added in 1976 through 2004.

As mentioned, the qualifying procedure for the Daytona 500 is quite unique any other auto racing qualifying procedure. Drivers get multiple opportunities to qualify for the season-opening race, as opposed to the usual format of one qualifying session per event.

The breakdown of the Daytona 500 qualifying procedure are:-

Daytona 500 Coors Light Pole Qualifying
 Qualifying will consist of three rounds with the first round divided into two groups based on a random draw. Vehicles drawing an odd number will be in the first group with even numbers in the second group. The first round is five minutes, and the 24 fastest cars advance to the second round. Following a 10-minute break, the second round will be five minutes with the fastest 12 advancing to the third and final round. A seven-minute break will precede the third round, which will last five minutes. The top two cars will make up the front row for the Daytona 500.

Duel at Daytona
 Those cars earning odd-numbered positions from qualifying will be assigned to the first Duel race. Those cars earning even-numbered positions from qualifying will compete in the second race.
 The starting positions for each Duel race will also be based on qualifying times.

Daytona 500 line-up
 The two fastest qualifiers during Coors Light Pole Qualifying earn starting positions one and two.
 The highest 15 finishers in each Duel race -- excluding the already locked-in front row -- will earn a spot in the Daytona 500, and fill positions 3-32.
 Based on their finishing position in the first Duel race, the top 15 will line up on the inside row (odd-number starting positions).
 Based on their finishing position in the second Duel race, the top 15 will line up on the outside row (even-number starting positions).
 Positions 33-36 will go to the four fastest cars from any round of Coors Light Pole Qualifying that has not already earned a spot.
 Positions 37-42 will be provisional positions, and go to the highest six cars in 2014 owner points that are present, have entered by the entry deadline and have not already qualified via the Duel or Coors Light Pole Qualifying.
 The 43rd starting position will be assigned to any car owner who has the most recent eligible past NASCAR Sprint Cup champion who did not make the field by any other method, providing the driver had competed in the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup season. If the 43rd position remains unused, it will be assigned to the next highest car in 2014 owner points not already locked into the field.
