Notes
  1. ^ The Casey's General Stores 150 presented by Vatterott College 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. Unlike in previous years, drivers received points and statistical credit relative to the whole field in general, instead of relative to other drivers in their series. Also drivers were allowed to score points for both the East and West Series.
  2. ^ The Visit Hampton Virginia 150 was postponed two days due to expected persistent rain.[22]
