NASCAR Monster Energy Series Odds - NASCAR All-Star Race 5/18/17

In a race built on courageous, bold moments, Kyle Busch used one to win NASCAR's annual All-Star race and its $1 million prize.

Busch made quite the comeback to earn the prize money, passing both Jimmie Johnson and Brad Keselowski, which allowed him to take the lead on the last 10-lap sprint.

"I thought Jimmie (Johnson) was in the catbird seat", Busch said. "Track position is key and you try to do something to get track position and you don't have the upper hand". I can't say enough about (crew chief) Adam Stevens and the guys on this pit box.

Busch got the victory, in large part, because of a restart which helped him get clean air and pick up his first-ever Monster Energy Series win at Charlotte. Called the longest day in racing, the Coca-Cola 600 takes place next Sunday, following the Indianapolis 500.

FOX in the Fast Lane, I'm Matt Napolitano, FOX News. We had a lot of speed on that last restart but couldn't get back there. "We are relieved, eluded and excited".

Bell said he was "bummed" that he finished third in what he called a "second-place auto". We came down pit road the leader, and three people passed us. But, in ten laps, track position is huge. "Tonight we just weren't 100 percent flawless".

"I'm telling you, we feel like Kyle can win anywhere", Gibbs said. Yet they did provide an intriguing strategic element in a race otherwise too short to have any others, so perhaps NASCAR could introduce even more choices.

But routinely, the All-Star Race resembles more of a parade rather than a star-studded event featuring NASCAR's 20 best drivers. "But I think we had a really fast vehicle today".

Moving the All-Star race to different venues could easily fix the issue NASCAR has with fans complaining about the event being too boring and predictable. Those who won previous stages and those with the best average finish made the cut. He thought the soft tires could only be used in the final 10-lap segment, and was unaware they could be used in an earlier stage of the event.

Points leader Johnny Sauter was second. "But everybody in the second, third, and fourth row is going to jump and do what they can to roll-up on the situation", Johnson said. Tell you the truth I will tune in just to root against the Busch brothers.

(19) Daniel Suarez #, Toyota, Eliminated, 60. He got in there. I had a decent start. Third segment victor Jimmie Johnson led 19 of those 20 laps, with Ryan Blaney leading the other lap. But, he spun the tires on the restart and was taken out by Elliott.

"There's no doubt that mile-and-a-half racing puts on a certain type of show", Johnson said. I won a million bucks. "We learned a little bit tonight and we'll come back next week and have some more fun".

(5) Kurt Busch, Ford, 70. Why should anybody care about the All-Star race if it ultimately means nothing in a driver's career?

"You have to run the tire at some point and in practice it did seem to have three- to four-tenths of more speed in it and I think it will be even more impactful when the sun goes down", Larson said.

Although the race does not count in the standings, it was Busch's first Cup victory of the season and first at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
