The selection rule for reboots is in effect. Drivers have the option to restart in the inner or outer line. They must make the call before reaching the engagement arrow on the track. Last year`s All-Star race in Bristol also had a selection rule. Brad Keselowski (115 laps) and Ryan Blaney (77) are the only drivers to have led more than 57 laps without a win in their All-Star starts. In the elimination round, two cars will be used in an area near the end of the pit road. When an alarm sounds, the drivers enter the pits and each team in the qualified car makes a pit stop with four tyres. When the jack falls, the drivers leave their pits on the track without any speed limit. The first car back at the start/finish line moves on to the next lap. This head-to-head format will reduce the bracket from eight to four to two, with the final pair fighting for pole position in Sunday`s race.
The drivers eliminated in the first round of the head-to-head race will start from fifth to eighth position, depending on their speed one lap from the first lap of qualifying. The drivers, who retired on the second lap of the race head-to-head, will start in third and fourth place depending on their speed one lap from the first lap of qualifying. This final starting position goes to the rider with the most votes, who otherwise has not yet qualified for the race after the conclusion of the Open. The results of the fan vote will be released until the end of the All Star Open. Gragson should have driven the No. 62 car for Beard Motorsports in Sunday`s Cup race. Justin Allgaier will drive the car, Gragson will move to car number 48. Instead, Texas will host the 2021 NASCAR All-Star race — a fun and usually fast-paced mid-season exhibition event with a big wallet (but more on that later). HOW MANY TIMES HAS HENDRICK MOTORSPORTS WON THE ALL-STAR RACE? Ten times with five driversJeff Gordon (1995, 1997, 2001)Terry Labonte (1999)Jimmie Johnson (2003, 2006, 2012, 2013)Chase Elliott (2020)Kyle Larson (2021) That means they can work in the NASCAR All-Star race this weekend, but will miss the next four races in Charlotte, Gateway, Sonoma and Nashville. Among the suspensions of teams that have not appealed their penalties is the race for the All-Star Game. Drivers are eligible for the All Star race if they won a points race in 2020 or 2021, won a previous All-Star race and are current full-time drivers, or have won a NASCAR Cup Series championship and are full-time drivers. He`s right.
For all those who will connect for the last event of the Cup on the FOX part of the program (start of the pre-race at 17h). AND on FS1, which is covered by the checkered flag), here`s your explanation of the rules of the race: “I love All-Star racing,” said former Cup champion Joey Logano. I think everyone does it, right? Whatever the rules. Sometimes it`s hard to understand the rules because they`re always so different. New this season, NASCAR is partnering with LiveLike to add fan engagement to the NASCAR mobile app. Log into the mobile app during the race to get polls, quizzes, the joy counter and more, and see instant results from NASCAR fans like you. The best way to describe it is to put die-casts in a blender, light them on, and call it a race. It is designed to put cars in a package and force them to bounce off each other like bumper cars. Drivers tend to know the rules when it comes to competition. There`s not much different from this year`s All-Star Open than the races of recent years.
The three stage winners qualify for the All-Star Race. The final driver in the All-Star Race will be determined by online fan voting. In NASCAR.com, if the winner of the fan vote also wins a stage of the Open, the finalist of the fan vote will participate in the All-Star race. The All-Star race was held at Speedway Motorsports tracks, so there`s a feeling that if the event moves, it will likely take place on one of the tracks in their portfolio. The problem is that many of these tracks already have points races in a few months in May, and then there could be three more points races between Texas and COTA (which is possible – it`s just a question of whether it would hurt participation). The current intermediate rule formula uses a tapered spacer to limit power to 550 horsepower while using a high downforce body assembly. In other words, big spoilers and little power. But for the All-Star race, NASCAR ordered an even greater reduction in power.
The 22 riders of the Open were awarded according to the owners` points. Richard Childress Racing`s Tyler Reddick took pole position and Roush Fenway Racing`s Chris Buescher will join him on the front row. Here`s the full open grid: NASCAR won`t be playing with the peloton after Stage 5. The riders simply start where they finished this stage. Alex Bowman will miss Sunday`s Cup race at Talladega Superspeedway after experiencing concussion-like symptoms following his crash last weekend at Texas Motor Speedway, Hendrick Motorsports announced Thursday afternoon. — Fifth lap: 30 laps. Only green flag laps count. An attempt at NASCAR extension, if necessary. On or before lap 20, all drivers must make a pit stop with four tires. The team with the shortest time on the pit road, yellow line to yellow line without penalty, wins $100,000.
The first four-tire stop, when someone makes multiple stops, is the one that counts. If there is a draw, the finish in round 5 is the tiebreaker. Those who do not make the pit stop start at the end of the peloton on lap 6. Each car rounded up at the end of the stage receives the free pass. All those who return to the pits after the fifth lap (in the break between laps) will line up in the order in which they come from the pit road, behind those who did not make the pit. — Your starting order will be determined by qualifying for a Saturday lap. Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Jeff Gordon are the only two drivers to win the race three times, and Jimmie Johnson — who recently retired from NASCAR racing full-time before signing up for the NTT IndyCar Series as a part-time driver — tops the list with a record four All-Star wins.
Compared to previous All-Star races, this year`s event has been slightly revamped, from the format to the host track. And between the changes and the different ways drivers can qualify for the show race, that`s a lot to keep track of. Special break: Each team must stop at the pits and make a stop with four tires. The team with the shortest pit time wins the pit team award and the driver starts fourth in the final stage, provided he finishes 15th or better in stage 3.
