Statistics, event schedule and race information for the Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race
The format for the annual non-points event will include four stages – 30 laps, 20 laps, 20 laps and 10 laps. Only green flag laps will be counted in the Final Stage. Normal stage break procedures will be in effect, with one exciting addition: NASCAR Overtime will be in play for all stages. Of note, there will be no mandatory pit strategy as in some of the previous editions of the event.
The Monster Energy Open will be three stages set at 20, 20 and 10 laps, respectively. Each stage winner will advance to the evening’s main event.
Each car will be fitted with aero ducts, a six-inch-high spoiler with two 12-inch ears, a restrictor plate and the 2014 style splitter. Working in concert, these additions create a unique aerodynamic effect.
The right-side tire that the Cup Series teams will use is the same as the more tractive “Option” tire run in last year’s All-Star event. This is the first time teams have run this left-side tire code at Charlotte, though they did run it at Kansas last weekend.
