Description The All-Star Open, provides an opportunity for drivers who didn't already qualify, or hope to win the All-Star Fan Vote, to progress to the All-Star Race.
All race winners from the 2019 and 2020 seasons are included, as well as former Cup Series champions and past All-Star Race winners.
That leaves 22 other drivers who will compete on Wednesday prior to the All-Star Race. The All-Star Open will feature three stages (two 35-lap stages and a final 15-lap stage), with the winners of each stage advancing to the All-Star Race. The victors of the first two stages will drop out after winning.
