NASCAR is headed to Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday for a pair of mid-season exhibition races. The All-Star Open will run at 6 p.m. ET and then the All-Star Race will run at 8 p.m. The winner of the Race will take home a $1 million prize and the fastest pit team will claim a $100,000 prize.

The All-Star Open will decide three of the final four spots in the starting lineup for the All-Star Race. The Race will include 21 total drivers, with 17 of those drivers determined ahead of time based on 2020-2021 performance and previous All Star Race and Cup Series season winners. The first 17 positions were assigned to those drivers via random draw. Spots 18, 19, and 20 will go to the All-Start Open drivers who win the first segment, second segment, and overall race. The 21st spot will go to the winner of the fan vote.

Here is the full lineup for Sunday’s 2021 NASCAR All-Star Race. We’ll update with the final four spots as that information comes in.
