NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) drivers, Clint Bowyer and AJ Allmendinger, advance to Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race, as Bowyer wins Friday night’s NASCAR Showdown and Allmendinger finishes second at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Failing to get the top-two transfering positions were Casey Mears finishing third, Marcos Ambrose fourth, Aric Almirola fifth, series Suonoco Rookie of the Year (ROTY) contender, Kyle Larson sixth, Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. seventh, pole-sitter Austin Dillon eighth, Paul Menard ninth and Danica Patrick finishing tenth.
One more driver will join Bowyer and Allmendinger in making Saturday’s NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race when the votes by fans are counted in favor of whom they want to see transfer.
The 30th annual NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race will follow the 7:10 p.m. (ET) Saturday qualifying session, with both being televised by FOX Sports 1.
