The fans are expecting fireworks in the 1.5-mile oval as half of the regular Cup season over the win can offer strong momentum for drivers going into the rest of the season.

“The All-Star Race is always a really fun and competitive way for our sport to do something a little bit different during the season. Our season is really long, and every weekend is so important so it’s fun to put a different spin on things this weekend. The fact that it’s a non-points-paying race doesn’t make any of the drivers want it any less,” Tyler Reddick said.
Tyler Reddick went on to say that he is fighting for a lot of money and bragging rights so he really likes to win the race and added that he had a really up and down season so far alongside the P30 finish at Kansas last week does not reflect what he is his No:8 team is. He went on to add that he expects to win some money and a lot of momentum for the upcoming races in the Cup series on Sunday.
“We’re competing for a lot of money and bragging rights, so who wouldn’t want to win. Our team has had a really up and down few weeks, and finishing 30th at Kansas isn’t a reflection of the results we deserve. Our pit crew is crazy good and my crew works so hard every single day at the shop to bring fast cars that can run up front and compete for wins. I hope we get to showcase that this weekend, win some money and use that as even more momentum to get out there and win at Charlotte, too,” Tyler Reddick added.
