Kenseth earned the victory in the 2004 running of the event and Edwards visited the winner’s circle in 2011.
Racing in to the Show
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. raced his way into the Sprint All-Star race in 2013 after starting from the fourth position and finishing the 40-lap race in the second position. Prior to Stenhouse, former Roush Fenway driver Jeff Burton earned the victory in the 2003 running of the Sprint Showdon to race his way into the Sprint All-Star race. Burton began the event from the 18th position and led 10 laps en route to the victory.
