Clint Bowyer will start up front for his latest try at the NASCAR All-Star Race and the $1 million prize that goes with it. Bowyer had never finished better than seventh in his nine previous runs at the non-points event at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Kyle Busch is right alongside in second. Busch won this race two years ago and has led laps at 12 of the 13 all-star races he’s taken part in. Busch got his weekend off to a fast start by winning the truck series race on Friday night.

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Clint Bowyer will start up front as he looks to win his first NASCAR All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Saturday night.

It won’t be easy, though, with Kyle Busch right alongside.

Bowyer has only had one top-10 finish in this non-points race in his nine previous trips. He says he’s excited to try for the win — and the $1 million prize that goes to the champion.

Busch got the weekend off to a strong start with a victory in the truck series race on Friday night. Busch won this event two years ago.

NASCAR will experiment with a setup that reduces engine temperatures. The hope is to find a usable setup package when NASCAR rolls out its Gen 7 car in 2021.
