  2. ^ The Casey's General Stores 150 was held as a combined event, with competitors from the K&N Pro Series East competing along with competitors for the K&N Pro Series West. The race was run with a series-based point distribution, where drivers receive points and statistical credit for their finish relative to other drivers in their series, not to the whole field in general.
