“It’s an honor to compete in the All Star race, and it’s always fun to race without the pressure of points so everyone on the team is excited for Saturday night.  We won it last year which was a great accomplishment for our team.  The format has changed some which puts more emphasis on winning the segments so the new rules always make for an interesting race every year.” Fast Facts
