The Texas Xfinity and Truck beginning lineups are set by utilizing a formula based upon 4 analytical classifications: owner points position, owner last race position, the surface and fastest lap from the most just recently finished race.

Efficiency Metrics Qualifying is a formula based upon the previous race. The formula is 15% of a fastest lap time position, 25% of the chauffeur’s last race surface position, 25% of the owner’s last race position and 35% of the owner points position. Any ties will be broken by the guideline book.
