For the first ever truck series race at Pocono NASCAR is going to do something different with qualifying. The qualifying order is going to be set based on the final practice with the slowest car going out first and the fastest car going out last. Each car will have two laps to qualify, but are going to sent out on the track every 25 seconds. If the final qualifying session was to get cancelled a drawing for the qualifying will take place.
