With Saturday's 60-lap heat races coming to a close, the majority of the starting lineup for Sunday's NASCAR All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro Speedway has been finalized.
Daniel Suarez and Chris Buescher will start on the front row for Sunday's historic event, after each driver was able to score the victory from the pole position in their respective heat races.
Joey Logano, Austin Dillon, and Chase Briscoe will complete the top-five starters for the annual exhibition event, which for the first-time ever will take place at North Wilkesboro Speedway.
William Byron, Christopher Bell, Brad Keselowski, Denny Hamlin, and Bubba Wallace will start inside the top-10 for what is guaranteed to be a track position-sensitive event.
A total of 24 drivers will take the green in Sunday's All-Star Race, with the final three spots in the field to be determined on Sunday; two by the results of the All-Star Open, and one by the results of the All-Star Fan Vote.
