Rule changesEdit

On January 19, NASCAR announced the introduction of a playoff format similar to the Chase for the Sprint Cup for the Xfinity Series and the Camping World Truck Series.[10] After the 26-race regular season, the top-12 drivers will enter the Round of 12 (Kentucky, Dover and Charlotte), with championship points reset. The top-eight drivers will advance to the Round of 8 (Kansas, Texas and Phoenix). The top-four drivers will qualify to the Championship 4 at Homestead. Race winners will automatically advance to the next round. Additionally, the 16 drivers who qualified for the 2015 Chase for the Sprint Cup are ineligible to race at Homestead.

NASCAR also announced that Dash 4 Cash races would feature two heat races that determine the starting grid for the main event. If a driver is the highest finishing eligible driver in two of the races, they become eligible for the Xfinity Chase.[11]

Schedule changes and notesEdit

  • Pocono Raceway will host the Xfinity Series for the first time on June 4, 2016. The race will be 250 mi (400 km) in length and will replace the standalone June race held by Chicagoland Speedway.[12]
  • The four Dash4Cash races—Bristol, Richmond, Dover (all spring) and Indianapolis—will have reduced race distances in order to add additional heat races. The Bristol format is two 50-lap heat races and a 200-lap feature, Richmond will have 35-lap heat races and a 140-lap feature, Dover will have 40-lap heat races and a 120-lap feature and Indianapolis will have 20-lap heat races and a 60-lap feature.
  • Due to NBCSN's coverage of the 2016 Summer Olympics, the Zippo 200 at The Glen was moved to CNBC and the Mid-Ohio 200 and Food City 300 to USA Network. The start of the Mid-Ohio race was moved to NBC Sports Live Extra due to USA's Olympic coverage overrunning.
