NASCAR All-Star Race 2020: Schedule, lineup, TV, radio, streaming for race at Bristol Motor Speedway

It’s race day at Bristol Motor Speedway, and we've got all the information you need to get ready for Wednesday night's NASCAR All-Star Race and the NASCAR All-Star Open qualifying race, which precedes it.

Wait, did you say All-Star Race at Bristol Motor Speedway? Yes.

For only the second time in the event's history, and the first since 1986 when Atlanta Motor Speedway hosted the annual exhibition race, Charlotte Motor Speedway will not host the All-Star Race. The event was moved to Bristol because of coronavirus concerns.

Also, for the first time since the COVID-19 outbreak, NASCAR is allowing more than a few thousand fans to attend a race. As many as 30,000 fans could be on hand at Bristol for Wednesday night's events.
