Once again, NASCAR’s All-Star race returns to the historic 0.625-mile North Wilkesboro Speedway for the second time in two years. The 200-lap main event is scheduled for 8 p.m. Sunday evening but there’s plenty more going on throughout the weekend at the Wilkes County track.

Tires will be a key factor in this year’s event. Three compounds labeled “prime”, a softer “option” tire, and wet-weather tires will be available with different strategies coming into play.  

The prime tire will carry yellow Goodyear lettering, the option tire will carry red lettering and the rain tire will carry white markings. Teams must qualify on the prime tire and must start the main event on the option tire. They may change to a different tire compound if they wish.
