(Daytona Beach, FL) - NASCAR is significantly changing up the qualifying rules for its 2014 season, using a knockout style of qualifying used in IndyCar and Formula 1.

At tracks over a mile and a quarter, all drivers will have the opportunity to take to the track in a 25-minute qualifying session.

The fastest 24 cars will then move on to an open 10-minute qualifying session.

The 12 fastest cars from the second session will then qualify for five minutes.

The winner of that session will be the polesitter.

At short tracks there is no middle session.

These procedures will be in effect for all NASCAR races in the three top series except for the Daytona 500 and the Eldora dirt race in the Truck Series.
