CONCORD, NC (TheSpread) - The Sprint Cup Series heads to Charlotte Motor Speedway for the NASCAR All-Star race on Saturday night, a night filled with two races that have races within each race with the winner getting over $1 million.

The 90-lap, 135-mile All-Star Race will consist of five segments. The leader at the completion of each of the first four segments will be repositioned directly behind the pace car and in front of all other cars prior to the opening of pit road for a mandatory pit stop before the fifth segment.

The order of the cars returning to the track after the pit stop will determine the starting order for the fifth and final segment.  With the All-Star race you have drivers trying to win at all costs with total disregard for their cars and point standings because there are no points, it's basically an exhibition race. Carl Edwards $1.2 million last year for taking the All-Star race a week earlier.   

Greg Biffle  10-1

The All-Star Race is often won by the driver who is hottest entering the event, and no one has been better in the first 11 races than Biffle, who has led the standing the past nine races. Biffle won at Texas—a similar track—and excels on short runs and in shootouts.

Brad Keselowski 12-1

Keselowski has been in three previous All-Star Races: 2009 and 2010 based on his win at Talladega in 2009, and last year as the runner-up in the Sprint Showdown. This kind of race is suits him perfectly.,  As good as he was at the end of last season and so far this year, a win in the All-Star Race would showcase Keselowski as a title contender for sure.


Trevor Bayne 50-1

The 21-year old Bayne would've been in last year's event had it not been for an insect bite that sidelined him, but he's in it this year, and could give the Wood Brothers their second win in the All-Star Race. They got their first one with another driver no one was expecting to win, a young Michael Waltrip in 1996. A mere 15 months after that Daytona 500 win, Bayne will get to run in the all-star event.
