NASCAR revealed the format for the 2015 Sprint Unlimited Thursday. The non-points event happens a week prior to the season opening NASCAR Sprint Cup series Daytona 500 and serves as the first time fans will see their favorite drivers on track.

The 75 lap event on Saturday Feb. 14 at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, Feb. 14, will be split into two segments. A competition caution at lap 25 will separate the segments in the non-points event, scheduled for an 8:15 p.m. ET start (live on FOX, Motor Racing Network Radio, and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

New for this year: Select fans will be paired with each crew chief for a random drawing to determine starting and pit road positions. The drawings will take place on Friday, Feb. 13 at the FDOT Main Stage inside the Sprint FANZONE beginning at 3:30 p.m.

“Anticipation for the start of the NASCAR season is at an all-time high among fans and drivers,” said NASCAR Executive Vice President and Chief Racing Development Officer Steve O’Donnell. MORE>>>
