The New Twin 125's Qualifying Rules

Makes me miss my old Charger

O.K Kiddos It's one week from the 125's. By now we are starting to formulate our strategy for the first race. The new qualifying rules in this years Daytona 500 really isn't going to hurt us much in Yahoo Fantasy Racing. Because we can select our drivers right up until just before the green flag waves.But still, this info will help you understand how the starting lineup is formed. Below is a explination of how the the drivers will qualify for this years Daytona 500.

This year, things have changed -- dramatically. The Duels will now determine not only the starting positions of the first 32 cars but also who actually makes the race. Finish in the top 15 in your Duel, and you're in the Daytona 500 -- simple as that.

Positions 33-36 are filled by the four fastest cars from time trials that 1) aren't on the front row and 2) don't transfer from the Duels. Positions 37-42 go to the top six cars in owner points not otherwise qualified. The final spot goes to a past champion or a seventh provisional starter, as with the general procedure for all races.

If the new format multiplies the suspense of the Duels from a fan's standpoint, it also will lead to some white knuckles inside the race cars. A major wreck in one of the Duels, one that involves a number of top drivers, could create havoc with the starting field.

Below is a list of this years entry list.
