The 100-lap race will be broken up into six rounds and feature various lineup changes between them.

A random draw will set the starting lineup and Rounds One through Four will be 15 laps each.

The top 8 to 12 drivers at the end of Round One will be inverted for the start of Round Two, based on the results of another draw to decide how many.

Round Three will use a standard lineup invert to reset the field.

Round Four will repeat the method used for Round Two.

Round Five will run for 30 laps and drivers will line up from worst to first based on the cumulative results from the first four rounds. A four-tire stop will be required during this round and the quickest crew wins $100,000.

The Round Five finishing order will be used to set the lineup for Round Six, which will be a 10-lap sprint to the checkered flag and a giant check for $1 million.

Seventeen drivers have already qualified for the All-Star race through criteria that grant entry to 2020-2021 race winners and past All-Star and Cup Series champions. One more driver will be added through a fan vote along with the three stage-winners of a 50-lap NASCAR Open qualifying race held prior to the All-Star race.
