Format focuses on the final 10 races of the season.
Qualifiers will include the top 12 in Yahoo! points and any others within 400 points of the leader.
Re-calculate points prior to the Chase. Chase qualifiers begin format with 2,000 points plus 5 points for each place on the qualifiers list (i.e. first place entering the Chase would start the format with 2,055 points; sixth place would start with 2,030; 12th place would start with 2,000). Start the non-Chase qualifiers at zero and also add 5 points for each position (i.e. 13th would start at 185 points; 50th at 0 points).
Teams earn 50 additional points for each pre-Chase and Chase win - top Yahoo! points for each race.
