NASCAR's $1M payout trumps no-points event

05/15/2014 11:37 AM

On Saturday, drivers will chase after a $1M prize in NASCAR’s Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

A field of 19 drivers has already been set and includes race winners from the past two years as well as previous Sprint Cup Series and All-Star Race champions. The remaining three spots of the field will go to the top two finishers in Friday’s Sprint Showdown and the driver chosen as NASCAR fans’ favorite through the Sprint Fan Vote .

NASCAR Truck Series driver Chris Lafferty says those who will drive in the All-Star race likely won’t hold back simply because it doesn’t hold weight in the standings.

Coverage of the race starts at 7 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1.

Watch the full interview with Lafferty tonight at 6:30 and 10:30 p.m. ET on cn|2.
