This is the third time in history, but for the second year in a row, the NASCAR All-Star Game will not be held in Charlotte.
Instead, the most accomplished and active drivers will gather at the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas, for the 150-mile race.
In addition to the new location, there is a new format. After the stage, there will be multiple inversions. After the first and third rounds, the 8th and 12th positions are randomly selected to reverse. After the second round, the audience reverses. The lineup for the fifth round will be determined based on the cumulative completion of the first four rounds, and the 10-lap penalty shootout in the sixth round will be determined based on the finish position of the car at the end of the fifth round.
“Drivers and pit crews had better pack their lunch buckets, because they have to work very hard to get the honor of celebrating in Victory Lane,” said Eddie Gorsach, president of Texas Motor Speedway and General Motors. According to NASCAR.com“This is an all-metal rodeo that can hold a big bag of dough.”
Sports news will provide updates and highlights in the All-Star Open Qualifiers and the 2021 NASCAR All-Star Game.
