What is the NASCAR All-Star Race?

The NASCAR All-Star Race, formerly known as The Winston, is an annual exhibition race held by the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) for the top drivers in the sport. This NASCAR race has a unique format, featuring multiple segments and no points on the line, making it a fan-favorite event.

The format for this epic showdown is as follows: First, there are two scorching 60-lap heats to determine the field. Drivers will push their machines to the limit, battling it out for a chance to be part of the main event. The All-Star Open, a thrilling 100-lap event, will take center stage. It’s a battle where every lap counts, with a break around lap 40 to catch our breath and gather our wits. The top two finishers from the Open will earn their golden tickets to the coveted All-Star Race. Also, one lucky driver will be chosen by the fans through the exhilarating Fan Vote, sealing their place among the racing elite.

The pièce de résistance -the All-Star Race itself- is a grueling 200-lap battle that pushes these drivers to their limits. With a competition break around lap 100 to keep the suspense alive, the race has at stake a mind-blowing $1 million prize.

All-Star Race History & Highlights

The first NASCAR All-Star Race was held in 1985 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina. The race was called The Winston, and it was named after R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company’s Winston brand, which was the primary sponsor of the race. The race was a one-day event and featured a unique format that included multiple segments and an all-star qualifying race.

The first running of The Winston was won by NASCAR legend Darrell Waltrip. The race quickly became a fan favorite, with its unique format and large purse, which attracted the best drivers in the sport. The race continued to grow in popularity over the years, and in 1992, it was moved to a night race, which only added to its appeal.

In 2004, the race was renamed the NASCAR Nextel All-Star Challenge after R.J. Reynolds decided to end its sponsorship of the event. The race continued to be held at Charlotte Motor Speedway, and it continued to attract the best drivers in the sport.

In 2007, the race was renamed the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race after Nextel was acquired by Sprint. The race also underwent a format change, which included a new segment called the “Sprint Showdown,” which allowed drivers who did not qualify for the main event to race for a chance to earn a spot in the All-Star Race.

In 2017, the race was renamed the Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race after Monster Energy became the title sponsor of the Cup Series. The race format continued to evolve, with new rules and segments added each year to keep the race exciting and unpredictable for fans.

The NASCAR All-Star Race has featured many iconic moments throughout its history, including Dale Earnhardt’s famous “Pass in the Grass” in 1987, and Jeff Gordon’s historic third win in 1995. Today, the race continues to be one of the most highly-anticipated events on the NASCAR calendar, featuring some of the sport’s top drivers competing for a chance to win a million-dollar purse and the title of All-Star Race champion.
