Kyle Larson takes poles for NASCAR All-Star race

20 May 2017, 09:32 | Gladys Abbott

In last year's exhibition race held annually in Charlotte, a new set of rules designed to create more action resulted in nearly half of the field going a lap down. It's a lot of fun and not a whole lot on the line other than a lot of money.

As part of a joint promotion with Axalta Coating Systems - Maaco's paint partner - Earnhardt will drive the No. 88 Axalta/Maaco Chevrolet SS on May 20 in his final All-Star race.

Larson is the points leader right now in NASCAR.

Elliott is, generally speaking, a more measured driver than Blaney. Drivers that have recently won a race or been a Cup Series champ automatically get entry. Jimmie Johnson (185.370mph), Kurt Busch (185.370mph), Kyle Larson (185.217mph) and Martin Truex Jr. With 18 minutes to go, Kyle Busch moved up to second (187.833mph), but then Harvick came out on option tires and vaulted to the top of the speed chart with a lap of 189.095mph. Last week: Kyle Busch won in Kansas, breaking a three-race winning streak for drivers from the pole. "When I was going over the bumps in the regular, "Prime" tires, the auto would want to step out on me. So, I'm excited for tomorrow's events". I hope it does.

"I thought our lap was really good". The official NASCAR stance is wait and see.

RIR has traditionally held the final race before the playoffs begin, but that race will now go to Indianapolis Motor Speedway, according to the report.

To determine the starting lineup for the race, each team will have three timed laps with a mandatory four-tire pit stop - so the pit crews have to be on their game as well.

With NASCAR DFS at DraftKings taking a break this weekend for the Monster Energy All-Star Race, it is a flawless time to take a closer look at the season to date to try to notice any trends and patterns that can be helpful going forward.

The top five advanced to the second round and that determined the pole-winner. He has been at his best at the 1.5-mile ovals, compiling a 10.2 average finish and ranking third in both dominator stats.

If a team chooses to use the optional tires, it must mount all four. Only 10 drivers will earn a spot in the final segment. "I don't think you will have every vehicle on the option tire for that final segment, but I could be wrong".

When to use the tires becomes the pivotal question of the race because some will race with them just to ensure a spot in the final 10. Joey Logano tries to defend his 2016 Monster Energy All-Star Race victory.

"This is our All-Star event and the drivers that are in it are all-stars of our sport, so I think that's something that we could do a better job of publicizing", he said.
