NASCAR’s All-Star Weekend is here, as the top 20 drivers start their engines Saturday night in a 90-lap sprint to the finish in Concord, NC. Charlotte Motor Speedway is a 1.5-mile, intermediate track completed in 1959 in a quad-oval shape. Every turn has the same 24° banking and straightaways are nearly flat with 5° banking. The frontstretch measures 1,980 feet (.375 miles) while the backstretch is just 1,500 feet (.284 miles). The drivers will work for 135 miles to try to win $1 million in this race that is separated into five segments, four 20-lap parts and a final 10-lap finish to wrap up the event. In the past 13 years of this race, Jimmie Johnson is the only driver with multiple victories, winning in both 2003 and 2006.

Drivers to Watch

Tony Stewart (7/1) - Charlotte is a perfect track for Stewart who has won at other downforce tracks this year, taking the checkered flag in both Las Vegas and California. Although he has zero top-5’s in his past 16 starts at this race track, he did win the All-Star race just three years ago in 2009. A pair of third-place finishes in his past three races shows that Stewart is starting to hit his groove.

Jimmie Johnson (6/1) - Now that he’s gotten his first win this season, last week at Darlington, Johnson has cracked the top-5 in the points standings. In the nine races he has completed this season, his average finish is an impressive 5.4. In addition to his two career All-Star wins, he’s also tallied six career victories at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Denny Hamlin (10/1) - Hamlin and new crew chief Darian Grubb have instantly clicked. The No. 11 car has been red-hot recently (top-4 finishes in three of past four races), including one of his two wins this season (Kansas and Phoenix). He has 13 career wins on intermediate tracks and has three top-10’s in his past four starts at Charlotte.

Greg Biffle (10/1) - The current points leader in the standings thrives in short races such as this. Although he has never won the All-Star Race, he did win at Texas this year, which is very similar to Charlotte in terms of size and configuration. He’s finished seventh or better in six of his past 14 starts at this track.

Carl Edwards (9/1) - The defending champion from last year’s All-Star Race also finished third in the last regular-season race at this track. He has yet to finish better than 5th for the season, but has remained competitive, earning a 5th, 11th, 8th, 9th, 10th and 7th in his past six completed races (not counting his accident two weeks ago).
