The NASCAR All-Star Race returns to Fort Worth, Texas for the second year in a row. It features the best drivers in all of NASCAR, but it’s much more than a circuit race. Throughout the weekend, the best NASCAR drivers will be on the front lines at Texas Motor Speedway.
Kyle Larson was the winner of last year’s Texas All-Star race and he will be back to try to defend his title.
However, the format this year will be slightly different than in previous years. The race consists of four stages totaling 125 laps, with three 25-lap stages and a 50-lap final stage. There will also be a knockout qualifying round, which has not existed in previous iterations of the race.
