After the Volusia Event, these teams will be awarded 2 provisionals. On July 1, 2022, any Platinum Team in good standing will earn an additional 2 provisionals. 2022 Gold Members will start the season with 2 provisionals but do not receive unlimited provisionals at Volusia. Gold Members in good standing will transition to Platinum status after the 5th night of racing. The total provisionals any team can accumulate for the 2022 season is four (4).

K. Provisionals tag the rear of the Feature.
L. An unlimited number of WoO awarded provisionals will be permitted for each event’s Feature.
M. The following guidelines will be used for determining provisional order:
a. For the first 5 race nights of the 2022 season provisionals will be awarded and lined up according to last year’s final Owner and Driver Point standings.
b. Beginning on the 6th night of racing, current Owner Points will determine the provisional order.
c. When using 2021 Owner and Driver Points for the first 5 nights of racing, the provisional order will be established by combining the two-point lists into one, numerically sequenced, list. If a team consists of a 2021 Owner and a different 2021 Driver, then that team uses whichever has the highest point position. Owner Points will take precedent if a tie exists between any Owner and Driver. Other ties will be broken first by 2021 A-Main Feature wins, then top 5 finishes, then top 10 finishes, and finally by qualifying position.
N. Tracks, where a weekly sprint car program is raced and pointed, may install a program identically paid and pointed as the WoO provisional program, for up to 2 local drivers.
O. In the event a qualified car/driver for the Feature Event is unable to take the initial green flag, the qualified car/driver will receive feature points and purse for last place. Any reason for not being able to take the initial green must be approved by Series Officials. In the event that multiple cars/drivers cannot make the initial green, they will be scored and pointed at the back of the field based on starting position. Alternates will no longer be taken to the Feature Event.
P. If at any time during the racing season a Platinum Team splits and both the Owner and Driver retain their Platinum status then both the Owner and Driver will be eligible for any unused Provisionals the Team had when the split occurred.
