Gates open at 6:30 a.m. Saturday for track action with a two-hour practice scheduled from 8-10 a.m. before the five-hour qualifying segment from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
During the first qualifying section, the first 24 spots in the 33-car field are up for grabs through the traditional four-lap attempts. Each car has up to three attempts during this time. The times of the top nine drivers from the opening qualifying segment are then erased for the Fast Nine Shootout.
In the Fast Nine Shootout from 4:30 to 6 p.m., each driver is required to make at least one more four-lap qualifying attempt. None of the drivers can start worse than ninth and can have multiple attempts if time permits.
On Sunday, Bump Day, positions 25 through 33 will be earned from the traditional four-lap qualifying runs.
