What time does the NASCAR All-Star Race start today? Schedule, TV channel for Texas

There’s more at play than wins and losses during one of the biggest events on the motorsports calendar, Sunday’s NASCAR All-Star Race.

Yes, the glory of beating some of racing’s biggest names is certainly alluring to some. But the winning driver gets a $1 million prize. That’s one heck of an incentive to leave it all out on the track.

Last year’s winner, Kyle Larson, has gotten off to a decent start in the Cup Series, all things considered. Larson’s No. 5 car has picked up a lone win so far, at the WISE Power 400. Yet, he has been remarkably consistent, notching six top-five finishes, including second place at last week’s AdventHealth 400 in at Kansas Speedway. The Hendrick Motorsports driver is certainly a favorite to end up in the winner’s circle once again on Sunday night.
