Today is scheduled to be a busy day for Cup teams — whether competing in Saturday night’s Monster Energy All-Star Race or the Monster Open beforehand — and for Camping World Truck teams. Truck teams are scheduled to practice, qualify and race today.

Qualifying for the All-Star Race today features the unique format of three laps and a pit stop. There is no pit road speed limit in qualifying. Kyle Larson won the pole for last year’s All-Star Race.

Today’s schedule could change. The wunderground.com site calls for rain throughout the day and evening.
