NASCAR All-Star Race 2020: How to Watch, Lineup, Time, and Platforms

By Gabriela Vatu / July 15, 2020

We're days away from a special NASCAR event - the NASCAR All-Star Race. In fact, it's even more special as there will be two events - one to help racers join the All-Star Race, and the actual big race. We're going to watch everything online, so let's go figure out how you can do that as well.

Both the All-Star Open and the All-Star Race are taking place on the Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee. The race was originally planned for May 16th, 2020, but it was pushed back due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

This is the first time since 1986 that an All-Star Race is held outside the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

How Does the NASCAR All-Star Race Work?

The night is split into two events - the All-Star Open and the All-Star Race. During the NASCAR All-Star Open, drivers will race the track in three segments - 35, 35, and 15 laps. The winner of each section earns a spot in the All-Star Race, alongside the Fan Vote winner.

Then, the NASCAR All-Star Race will be contested over 140 laps (55 - 35 - 35 - 15).

To be eligible to enter the All-Star Race, drivers must have won a Cup Series race in 2019 or 2020, won a previous All-Star race, or be a former Cup Series champion.

What's the NASCAR All-Star Race Lineup?

So far, the list of eligible drivers includes Ryan Blaney, Alex Bowman, Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch, Chase Elliot, Justin Haley, Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, Jimmie Johnson, Erik Jones, Matt Kenseth, Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, Ryan Newman, and Martin Truex Jr.

The four winners of the All-Star Open will join this list.

When Is the NASCAR All-Star Race?

The NASCAR All-Star events are scheduled for July 15th, 2020. The All-Star Open starts at 7 PM ET, while the All-Star Race kicks off at 8:30 PM ET.

So, depending on whether you want to watch both events or just the big race, it's up to you. Both events are going to be broadcast by FS1.

Other Ways to Watch NASCAR All-Star Race Online

Since fuboTV isn't the only platform to feature FS1, we're going to go over other ways you can enjoy watching the NASCAR All-Star Race online.

Hulu - Hulu is another good option for those who want to switch to watching TV online. There is a single bundle here, but it features FS1, so it's easy to keep up with the race. You can also add a couple of extra channel packs and several premium networks if you want more content. Plus, one of the best features is that once you subscribe to the Live TV service, they also give you access to the Hulu On-Demand platform. Start your free trial of Hulu!

Sling TV - One of the most versatile platforms on the market now is Sling TV, which has three bundles to offer. FS1 is part of two of these bundles, namely Blue and Orange + Blue. If you're interested in finding out the differences between these two, you should dig deeper than the channel combination and the price. More specifically, Blue subscribers get three simultaneous streams, while Orange + Blue subscribers get four of them.

You can then add any number of channel packs they have - which are organized by channel theme - as well as premium networks. There are also some add-ons you can get. Watch 3 Days Free on Sling TV Now!

Fox Sports Website - Another way to watch the NASCAR All-Star Race online is through the Fox Sports website. The website carries multiple live streams, including for FS1. To gain access to these live streams, you'll have to log in to an account to prove that you pay for a TV subscription where FS1 is included.

You'll need to use the credentials from your TV provider, which can be one of the live TV services we've been talking about or a cable company for those who haven't cut the cord just yet.

The FS1 live stream is also geo-blocked, so if you want to access it from abroad, you'll need a VPN. You can click here to find out what needs to be done to make things work.

How to Watch NASCAR All-Star Race When Traveling Abroad?

One of the issues surrounding watching US TV from abroad is that all live TV platforms and streaming services are geo-blocked. Basically, when you travel, you can no longer access any of the content you're accustomed to unless you have some extra help.

That help comes in the shape of a VPN, which is a tool that can connect you to servers from all over the world, routing your connection and assigning you a new IP address to match the location.

We recommend ExpressVPN, as it's one of the best tools on the market. It features thousands of servers all over the world, and some great privacy features thanks to the encryption protocols they make use of.

All you have to do is subscribe to ExpressVPN (49% OFF), as you can get your money back in 30-days time if you're not satisfied. It comes with apps for pretty much all devices, and you simply have to pick a US-based server once you've set up everything.
