NASCAR officials announced that the field size for the Gander Trucks series will be temporarily expanded to a maximum of 40 vehicles. This change is in effect for events scheduled without qualifying.
The temporary procedure change increases the field from the usual 32 trucks to 40. For Gander Trucks series points, first place will continue to earn 40 points with five points for 32nd (formerly last). Teams finished 33rd through 40th in the expanded field will each receive five points.
Pit selection for the Gander Trucks will be based on the Las Vegas qualifying results.
The starting lineup will be chosen as follows:
- Positions 1 -10: The first 10 NGROTS Teams based on the Adverse Conditions Line Up Eligibility will be assigned starting positions 1st – 10th using a random draw.
- Positions 11 – 21: The next 11 NGROTS Teams based on the Adverse Conditions Line Up eligibility will be assigned starting positions 11- 21 using a random draw.
- positions 22 – 32: The next 11 NGROTS Teams based on the Adverse Conditions Line Up eligibility will be assigned starting positions 22nd – 32nd using a random draw.
- Any vehicles that are eligible for the Event in position 33rd – 40th will be assigned starting positions based on their order of eligibility.
The order of eligibility for positions 1-27 will be based on 2019 owner points and 28-20 will be based on 2020 owner points.
