  2. ^ Changed to a backup car for the race. He was put in front of the two last qualifiers, as they were using provisionals.

Failed to qualify or withdrew[edit]

  • United States Greg Gorden R for Truscelli Team Racing - initially named for the ride, the team decided to step him down for not having enough seat time in the car, as the new chassis came just days before an scheduled test.[4] Replaced by United States Brian Tyler, who was due to drive for Team Pelfrey, where he was replaced by United States Robby Unser.[5]
  • Team Menard entered the #2 car, which remained vacant for the event. Before qualifying, they announced an agreement to surrender the number #3 to Brant Racing, which were due to use #31, because of "Brant's long business relationship" with Richard Childress. Greg Ray switched numbers from #3 to #2.[6]
  • The #77 Chastain Motorsports entry, which was vacant on the entry list, did not arrive at the track.
