Today was full of fast speeds on the oval, and a little confusion on the sidelines.

The qualification format is different this year; so different that even the drivers and engineers aren’t quite sure how it will work out tomorrow. What is certain is that there will be two shootouts on day 2 of qualifying. The fun will begin with the cars in positions 10-30 from today re-qualifying in the first shootout to determine their final pole positions.

Then, the cars in the 1-9 positions will compete in the second shootout. They’ll start with the car in 9th, JR Hildebrand’s #21, and work the way to the top of the list, Ed Carpenter’s #20. Each car will get to make one qualifying round of laps, which will determine the final pole positions for race day.

The only positions that were determined today are numbers 31-33, belonging to Alex Tagliani, Martin Plowman, and Buddy Lazier, respectively.

The shootouts tomorrow are sure to be eventful, and there should be cars that move positions. Rain delays and cancelled practices this past week meant that the cars and drivers weren’t quite tuned in as well as hoped, and many were still using today’s qualifying laps much like they would practice laps.
