  • Date: Sunday, August 22nd, 2021
  • Start time: 3 p.m. EST.

Kevin Harvick, who has yet to win this year, was victorious in the last three races at Michigan. He is inside the playoffs on points, but is not yet guaranteed a spot. Kyle Larson now leads the regular season standings after a chaotic race at Indianapolis.

Of note, COVID-19 protocols have sidelined Corey LaJoie for this race. He will be replaced by Josh Berry in the No. 7 Spire Motorsports entry.
