Following the July 2 Independence Holiday 76-lap Summer Championship race, the 12 drivers who will compete for the division point title will be determined. Positions 1-5 will go to the leading drivers in the point standings. Positions 7-12 will go to winners of previous Modified feature races.

The next two rounds of the elimination—Final 8 and Final 4—will remain as they were previously announced.
