The Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race, formerly known as The Winston until 2004, the Nextel All-Star Challenge from 2004 to 2007, then the Sprint All-Star Race from 2013 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, 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 five Showdown races (a twin 20-lap race for drivers not eligible for the main event), or by winning the fan vote.

The new format consists of the familiar three segments, but the noticeable difference is how the lineup will be set for the final 13-lap heat. A draw will determine whether the top nine, 10 or 11 drivers have to make a mandatory four-tire pit stop just prior to the decisive segment. Any drivers falling outside the cutoff to pit will be forced to remain on the track with tires at least 15 laps old.

That slower cars will restart up front on worn tires, while faster cars with fresher tires will be positioned toward the back, should guarantee an increase in passing and side-by-side racing, both of which have been in short supply in the annual mid-May race held at Charlotte Motor Speedway. In each of the past three editions not a single lead change has occurred within the final 10 laps.

At a minimum, the juxtaposition in speed between the two groups of cars will make for a very eventful restart. Those drivers on old tires will try desperately to maintain their spots, with those on newer tires feverishly attempting to get back up front.

For this concept to work as designed it is dependent upon Goodyear to bring a tire that falls off over a run. That the manufacturer has consistently done so throughout the season should alleviate any concerns.

The innovative format is credited to Brad Keselowski, who cultivated the idea as part of the Sprint Cup Drivers Council, a nine-member committee that regularly meets with high-ranking NASCAR officials to discuss issues primarily related to competition and safety.
