All-Star Race[edit]

Race[edit]

The pole-sitter was Clint Bowyer, although the person who dominated the race was Kevin Harvick, seeking his second win in the All-Star Race and his first All-Star win since 2007. Kyle Larson took the lead in the #42 Chevrolet with 13 laps to go and held it to the end, winning his first All-Star Race victory.

Post-race Scuffle[edit]

On the final lap of the race, pole-sitter Clint Bowyer chopped into the front of Ryan Newman's #6 Acorns Ford Fusion, almost taking both cars out of the race. When the checkered flag waved and during the cool-down lap, Newman tapped Bowyer in the back, igniting a post-race scuffle that ended with Bowyer running up to Newman's car and punching him several times while Newman was strapped in his car. Both drivers were summoned to the NASCAR Hauler post-race, but no penalties were assessed to either driver.
