NASCAR Budweiser Shootout
The event was originally known as the Busch Clash, and consisted of a 20-lap/50-mile, "all-out sprint" for the previous season's pole position winners. In its current format, it is made up of two segments: an opening 25-lap segment, followed by a 50-lap race to the finish. Like the Sprint All-Star Race held at Charlotte, the race carries no championship points for the winner but instead a large purse – circumstances which are supposed to encourage an all-out driving style not seen in regular-season races.
The invitation-only field consists of a maximum of 28 cars, as opposed to 43 starters in a standard event. The starting lineup is determined by a random draw, not by time trials as all other races are determined. The defending winner of the event is Kevin Harvick, after winning it in 2013.
