BROWNSBURG, Ind. – The Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will kick off its 2021 season with six nights of non-point competition between Georgia and Florida in late January and early February.

The entire All Star Circuit of Champions schedule is nearing completion and will be unveiled in November.

Chasing a total winner’s share of $42,000, the traveling All Stars will launch their 2021 campaign with six races in seven days between Jan. 29 and Feb. 4, igniting their annual southern invasion with a two-day stop at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Ga., on Jan. 29-30.

The two-day spectacle, featuring Tony Stewart’s All Stars at Screven for the first time since 2012, will be the richest two days of the southern swing. Screven’s pair of races will pay out $8,000 to the winner on Friday and $10,000 to the Saturday victor.

After a travel day on Sunday, Jan. 31, the All Stars will resume their trek through the South with a visit to the Sunshine State, this time invading East Bay Raceway Park near Tampa, Fla., on Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 1-2.

Right in the heart of East Bay’s annual Winternationals schedule, the East Bay doubleheader will award back-to-back $6,000 top prizes.

A two and a half hour jaunt northeast will lead the All Stars from Tampa to Barberville, Fla., where the All Stars will continue their Florida stretch with a two-day stint at Volusia Speedway Park on Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 3-4.

Continuing a longstanding tradition of All Star action opening the five-day sprint car segment of Volusia’s DIRTcar Nationals, the midweek appearance will award another pair of $6,000 top prizes.

East Bay and Volusia were each visited by the traveling All Stars in 2020, with now three-time All Star champion Aaron Reutzel winning two of the four contested main events.

The Clute, Texas, native scored his pair of $5,000 triumphs at Volusia on Feb. 6 and East Bay on Feb. 10. Brad Sweet, who is chasing a second consecutive World of Outlaws title, opened the 2020 All Star season with a victory at Volusia Speedway Park on Feb. 5.

Kyle Larson, the leading All Star winner during the most recent season with 14 All Star victories, capped East Bay action last February with a win on Feb. 11.
