Larson is coming off victories at Charlotte and Sonoma heading into the $1 million exhibition race at Texas Motor Speedway.

Kyle Busch will start alongside him on the front row ahead of Christopher Bell and Cole Custer.

The All-Star Race field draw is comprised of drivers who have won the event or the series championship in the past 10 years plus race winners during the 2020 and 2021 seasons. Four more spots are reserved for the winner of the fan vote and the winners of the two All-Star Open qualifying races and final round held on Sunday prior to the All-Star Race.

Starting on pole only goes so far, however, as the race is broken into six stages and the field is inverted in parts or its entirety several times on restarts.
