The NASCAR Cup Series is back in action on Sunday, June 13th with the NASCAR All-Star Open and All-Star Race at the Texas Motor Speedway. There are ten races left until the playoff starts, and this weekend provides a break with the $1 million exhibition.

The All-Star Race will consist of 21 drivers, with three of the final four spots determined through the All-Star Open. The Open starts at 6 p.m. ET and will air on FS1, with a live stream available on and through the Bally Sports app. The race is broken up into three segments of 20 laps, 20 laps, and 10 laps, all of which must be green flag laps. Any caution laps do not count. Last year’s All-Star Open was 85 laps due to cautions and took 47 minutes and 22 seconds for first place finisher Matt DiBenedetto

The All-Star Race starts at 8 p.m. ET and will also air on FS1 and via live stream at and through the Bally Sports app. The race is 100 laps, broken up into multiple segments. Like the Open, the 100 laps must all be green flag laps. Last year’s race went 140 total laps and took 1 hour, 8 minute, and 10 seconds.
