NOTE: NASCAR, in one version of the lineup has a different order for the provisionals behind Truex. They have McDowell 38th, Terry Labonte 39th, Smith 40th, Yeley 41st, Reutimann 42nd & Kvapil 43rd. That has the provisionals awarded in order of their qualifying speed after it’s determined they qualify for one based on owner points. So consider this lineup unofficial, for those final spots until the sport gives further clarification on the rule.
