Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The NASCAR preseason continues with the Sprint Unlimited on Saturday, and for the second year in a row fans get to vote on the race format. Here's what you need to know.

The 2014 Sprint Unlimited at Daytona International Speedway is right around the corner. It's a preseason race, which means no points, but fans who've been waiting since Miami for a race should be glad to have some action to enjoy again. They'll even get  a voice in it, as they will be voting on a number of competitive aspects for the race, including number of laps in each of the three segments, the starting order and how drivers will line up for the final segment.

The race will go for 75 laps, split up into three segments. The number of laps in each segment will be determined by fan voting. Since voting is open until 7:30 p.m. ET, the starting lineup is unknown at this moment. There will be 20 drivers in this race, which is made up of the top pole winners in 2013. The race begins at 8 p.m. and will be televised on Fox Sports 1.

Here are the drivers competing on Saturday:
