Robin Pemberton, NASCAR's vice president for competition has announced the end of single-car qualifying runs in the NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series beginning next month with the Coors Light and Keystone Light Pole Qualifying events at Speedweeks. Yet, he has yet to disclose just what those changes would actually entail.

“We’ll let you know later this month as we go through the details,” he commented.
He was also cagey about any qualifying changes being worked on for the Sprint Cup, though he did state that, “the traditional qualifying process for the Daytona 500 would remain as is with single-car qualifying runs as well as the two 150-mile Budweiser Duel races which determine the field for the Great American Race.”
"Daytona's format has always been a one-off, and it's a great format. We've got the duels on Thursday, and that's always been a pressure-packed race for the teams. Especially now with the lack of lock-ins, you've got to race in. And so this place stands on its own right now."
