How NASCAR can improve the All-Star Race

  • Dale Earnhardt Jr

(Earnhardt Jr.) "That was a incredible day". Hamlin would return to the race track from adjustments in the garage area to his Toyota and on his first lap the auto would stagger and head directly toward the outside wall in turns 3 and 4.

MONSTER CUP ALL-STAR RACESite: Concord, North Carolina Schedule: Friday, practice, 1 p.m. (FS1), practice, 3 p.m. (FS1), practice, 6:05 p.m. (FS1), practice, 7:30 p.m. (FS1); Saturday, qualifying, 4:35 (FS1), race, 8 p.m., FS1.

The All-Star Race, like NASCAR's other exhibition race in February at Daytona, often sees some of the most daring moves of the season because there are no points at stake.

RIR's ¾-mile, D-shaped oval hosts two Cup races a year, a day race in the spring and the fall night race, which will be September 9 this year. The race will consist of two twenty lap segments, which the victor of both will move on to the main event. The victor of each segment advances to the All-Star Race. The non-points event was the only race sectioned into stages, to feature double-file restarts, and guaranteed to give fans a finish under the green flag.

To determine the starting lineup for the race, each team will have three timed laps with a mandatory four-tire pit stop - so the pit crews have to be on their game as well.

The clip shows Erdogan emerging from a auto to watch the melee before heading inside the Turkish ambassador's residence. What happened next has been described by the DC Police Department's Chief as a "brutal attack" on peaceful protestors.


No points for the season, but the victor gets a cool $1 million. Teams that qualify for the final segment will be given the option to use softer tires, which provide more grip and, therefore, more speed.

Concussions from crashes have led to Earnhardt's early retirement, and safety is back at the forefront for NASCAR after the three-car crash last week between Joey Logano, Danica Patrick and Aric Almirola.

In an effort to enhance a once iconic event, NASCAR and CMS officials have taken to rolling out a new format or rules tweak on an annual basis.

If the intent is to incite drivers to go all-out in a race where only winning matters, then put them on a track where emotions tend to overflow. But, Kevin Harvick will win himself a million dollars when the night is over. "You just go out there and race as hard as you can". "The two or three days leading up to the All-Star Race are like going to a county fair or something like that, where there's entertainment and things to do and drivers appearances and just a whole lot of fun things that go into the event before running the race on Saturday night".
