  • Who’s eligible? – drivers who have won a points event in 2017 or 2018; full-time drivers who have previously won an All-Star Race; full-time drivers who have won a Cup Series championship. Additionally, three drivers will be added as a result of winning a stage in the Monster Energy Open (before the All-Star Race), and one driver will be added through the Fan Vote.
