Qualifying:
Drivers will register and draw for hot lap groups. Drivers must hot lap in assigned heat-race groups. Hot laps will be timed. Utilizing those times, an invert will coincide with the number of cars scheduled to redraw (if the redraw is three, then the fastest car from the group will start the heat race third via the invert). The remainder of the heat lineup will be heads-up from times. Top qualifiers from each heat race will transfer to the redraw. The feature event starting field will be filled by qualified cars from heat races, consolations and provisional starters. The highest two drivers in STSS South Region points from 2017 will be added as “buy-in” provisionals.

The fastest car from Friday night’s timed hot-lap sessions will earn a guaranteed redraw position in Saturday’s main event.
