2013 Charlotte (All-Star): Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Recap

2013 Charlotte (All-Star): Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Recap

Five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion, Jimmie Johnson etched his name in the sport’s history books by becoming the first four-time winner of the annual Sprint All-Star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He broke the tie for the all-time All-Star race wins lead with Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Sr. Johnson also won the annual event in 2003, 2006, and 2012.

The driver of the No. 48 Lowe’s Chevrolet SS led only the final 10 of the 90-lap non-points dash-for-cash race to take home the $1 million prize for the second consecutive year. He became the second driver to win back-to-back All-Star events; the first was Davey Allison in 1991-’92.

Johnson’s win also marked the eighth All-Star win for team owner Rick Hendrick, more than any other. In addition to Johnson’s wins, Gordon won the event in 1995, ’97, and 2001. Terry Labonte took the victory in 1999.

In the fifth and final All-Star segment of the evening, Kasey Kahne, No. 5 Farmers Chevrolet SS, had the lead and the preferred lane, but could not hold off his Hendrick Motorsports teammate. Battling a tight car in the end, Kahne was still able to score a fourth place overall finish.

Kurt Busch, No. 78 Furniture Row/Sealy Chevrolet SS had a stout run in tonight’s event by winning the first and third segments and earning the best finishing average through the first four segments. Even though he entered pit road in first place, a slow pit stop cost him valuable positions for the final restart, and he finished the race in fifth place.

Joey Logano (Ford) was second and Kyle Busch (Toyota) finished third to round out the top-five in tonight’s race.

Next stop on the tour will be again at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 26th for the Coke-Cola 600.
