Kyle Larson‘s past month has now gotten even better.
Coming off of two straight NASCAR Cup Series wins in the last two weeks, Larson has won the pole for Sunday, June 13’s All-Star Race at Texas Motor Speedway via random draw on Tuesday, June 8.
Owner points determined the lineup for the NASCAR All-Star Open, the race that serves as a last-chance qualifying event for every Cup Series driver that is not already eligible for the main event. So Tyler Reddick was awarded the pole. Alongside Reddick will be Chris Buescher in the No. 17 Roush Fenway Racing Ford. The two drivers sit 13th and 14th in owner standings, respectively.
There are currently 17 cars in the All-Star Race, but three additional spots will go to the winners of each stage in the 50-lap Open, and the winner of the All-Star fan vote award will also be added.
The evening will begin with the All-Star Open being broadcast at 6 p.m. ET. on Sunday, June 13. The 100-lap All-Star Race will begin afterward at 8 p.m. ET. Both broadcasts will be on FS1.
