    The 33 car will recieve the owner points from the 01 car of last year, so both Clint Bowyer and Casey Mears are locked in the 500 and the 77 Sam Hornish Jr will have to race his way in.

    Also if both Stewart and B.Labonte qualify or race their way in then Bill Elliott is next in line for the champions provisional spot.
