The STEEM Cup Series returns this week, just in time for the Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race!
STEEM Cup Series Contest
Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race
Saturday, May 20, 2017 – 8:00pm ET
Charlotte Motor Speedway – Charlotte, North Carolina
The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is heading to Charlotte this week with a different type of race format in the All-Star Race. The Charlotte Motor Speedway is a 1.5-mile quad-oval track. This year’s All-Star race is formatted for three 20-lap stages and one final 10-lap stage to determine the race winner. Joey Logano was the winner of last year’s race and will be in the line-up as an automatic qualifier.
The weather forecast for Charlotte, NC on Saturday will be in the 80s with a 50% chance of rain in the early evening.
The drivers have not yet completed qualifying for their start positions in Sunday’s race. You can find their current practice times and the updated qualifying times/positions on Saturday evening at the following link: NASCAR Race Center.
*Please note that the final line-up for the All-Star race will be determined on Saturday evening, just prior to the scheduled start time.
If you’re not choosing drivers from those who are automatically qualified, you must check to see if your preferred drivers have made it into the All-Star race. You can find the posted results here, after the initial qualifying race is completed: NASCAR Race Center
