Beginning this season, a championship format similar to what is used in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will be implemented in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. The following is a brief description of the championship format:
  • Drivers will advance to what is known as the Chase Grid
  • Drivers eligible for the Chase Grid will be determined by greatest number of wins after the first 26 races
  • 12 drivers will qualify for the Chase. If fewer than 12 drivers win races during the first 26 races, then drivers without a win who have the most points will take the remaining spots in the Chase Grid
  • Wins in two Dash 4 Cash Mains by a driver will be equivalent to a regular season race win (without race win bonus points) for Chase eligibility
  • The Chase will consist of 7 races, made up of 2 elimination rounds (3 races each) and a championship race.
  • The number of championship drivers in contention will decrease after every three Chase races, from 12 to start in the Chase Grid; 8 after Chase race #3; and 4 after Chase race #6.
  • Four drivers will enter the series Championship race with a chance to win, with the highest finisher among the four capturing the prestigious NASCAR XFINITY Series title
  • Championship race will be held at Homestead-Miami
  • 2015 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers will be ineligible to compete in the NASCAR XFINITY Series Championship race
