Blog Photo - Sprint All Star Race [Live Thread]We covered the anticipated procedures of the All Star Race earlier this week, but now it is time to go racing.  I walked through the door about ten minutes ago, and notice the race is only on FoxSports1 and not on Fox, so I figured I'd better get a thread going for those of you who might be hanging around and not able to see.  

The race will runin five segments of 20 laps each and Carl Edwards will lead them to the green.  Qualifying was just completed, and Jake Owens is entertaining the crowd as the drivers and crews get their last mnute preparations completed.  Kyle Busch, winner of last night's truck race, will join Edwards on the front row, with Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. filling the first three rows.  Denny Hamlin and Tony Stewart  are heading to the rear.

We are about to go racing, so if you are trying to watch on TV and don't have the channel, keep it here and we'll give you the updates as we go.

Let's Go RACING!

Clint has damage and his car needs repairs before he goes green on-track.

Wow, and they restart and AJ Allmendinger got touched an punted into the wall.

And Kyle Busch is being a jerk.  Clint didn't do eff all.  That was clearly all of his own making.

Woah!!! Kyle Busch gets impatient and gets into Clint Bowyer.  When Clint corrects, he takes out Kyle.  Joey Logano gets into Kyle and it looks like both are done for the night.  Kyle is pissed, but he has no reason to be, it was all his own fault.  Dale Jr snuck through without damage.

Everyone pits, except Denny Hamlin.

Edwards continues to lead, but behind him, there is a bit of a shakeup!

Have to admit, I'm loving these introductions, even Rutledge Wood isn't terribly annoying!
