Martin Truex Jr., who is seeking his first All-Star Race win, will start on the pole for Wednesday night’s race at Bristol Motor Speedway after a random draw.
Truex will be joined on the front row by Alex Bowman.
Rookie Cole Custer, who earned a spot in the All-Star Race with his win Sunday at Kentucky, will start eighth.
Among the special rules for the race:
# The Chose Rule will be used. As drivers approach a designated spot on the track, they must commit to the inside or outside lane for the restart.
# The car number will move from the door toward the rear wheel to give sponsors more exposure.
# Cars that have automatically qualified for the All-Star Race will have underglow lights on their cars.
