2019 All Star Race at CharlotteThe Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race, formerly known as The Winston from 1985 to 2003, the Nextel All-Star Challenge from 2004 to 2007, then the Sprint All-Star Race from 2008 to 2016, is an annual Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series stock car exhibition race between race winners from the previous season and the beginning of the current season, as well as all past event winners, and previous NASCAR Cup Series champions who attempted to run the entire previous season. Two other ways to become eligible to race in the event are winning one of the three stages in the Monster Energy Open (a 50-lap race for drivers not eligible for the main event), or by winning the fan vote.

These drivers are all full-time drivers who have either won a Cup Series championship, won a Cup Series race in the 2018 and/or 2019 seasons or won a past All-Star Race. Several of them have checked off more than one of these three boxes.

Here is a list of these 15 drivers, sorted alphabetically by team and then in numerical order by car number, and why they have already qualified for the 2019 All-Star Race.
