NASCAR All-Star schedule 2022: Times, TV channels, lineup for Xfinity, Truck and Cup Series races at Texas

The NASCAR All-Star Race is back in Fort Worth, Texas for the second year in a row. It features the best drivers throughout NASCAR, but it’s much more than one circuit race. Throughout the weekend, NASCAR’s best drivers will be front and center at Texas Motor Speedway.

Kyle Larson was the winner of last year’s all-star race in Texas, and he’ll be back to try and defend his title.

The format this year, however, will be a bit different from in years past. The race will be four stages for 125 total laps, with three 25-lap stages and a 50-lap finishing fourth stage. There will also be a knockout qualifying round that has not existed in past iterations of the race.
