NASCAR 2020 All-Star Race makes a new turn
NASCAR’s annual all-star event would’ve normally already been run, but due to Covid-19, it was postponed until July. The race pits the sports best drivers against each other under the lights for a 1-million dollar prize. Ever since 1985, the event has taken place at Charlotte Motor Speedway. With a new date, it also comes to a new venue.
All-Star Event Makes a New Turn
For the first time ever the race will move from the 1.5-mile oval in Charlotte to the “Last Great Coliseum” at the Bristol Motor Speedway. The world’s fastest half-mile will make for even more action. It also marks the return for the largest crowd number since the Covid-19 shutdown. It will still be the same style event, just add a little more bumping and banging. When the money’s on the line, anything could happen. The Bristol race on May 31st had plenty of action and drama, this event could double that. Watch out for those Busch Brothers.
New Car Number Placement?
With the move to Bristol, also comes a new idea for the placement of the car numbers. The new paint scheme concept is set to debut at the July 15th All-Star Race. The scheme moves the side numbers back closer to the rear wheels. In the numbers normal place, Sponsorship will take advantage of the empty space looking towards the future of placement on the race-car. A similar concept was used a few years ago in the ARCA Menards Series.
Plenty of changes on the horizon, this is just another example, as NASCAR moves forward in 2021. How many more changes are on the horizon in America’s top Motorsport.Last updated: Wed 17th June 2020
