NASCAR Making Changes to All-Star Race Format

CONCORD, N.C. -- (AP) -- NASCAR's annual all-star race will be split into five segments this year, with a mandatory pit stop before the final 10-lap sprint for the $1 million prize.

The Sprint All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway will be 90 laps, and begin with four 20-lap segments. The winner of each segment will move to the front of the field before the cars head down pit road for their stop.

Drivers will then line up in the order they leave pit road to start the final segment.

NASCAR and its main series sponsor are consistently working with track officials to spice up the annual event. Sprint is running a contest this year to allow fans to give the driver introductions via video entries that will be shown on Charlotte's 80-foot television screen.
