David Ragan wins the All-Star Showdown

David Ragan passed Brad Keselowski with a handful of laps to go to take the win in the All-Star Showdown. Both drivers transfer into the Sprint All-Star race. Dale Earnhardt Jr. was the winner of the Sprint Fan Vote and will be the final driver in the All-Star race.

Ragan said “Clean air was everything. If a driver was running sixth and got out front he could have held off the field. The restarts were key and getting ahead was everything.”

Earnhardt Jr. feels like he’s found something for the race. “We hit on something at the end of the race there. The last run of the race we were faster than everyone. The car doesn’t fall off very bad on the long run. Our problem is we don’t have speed in the first four laps and that is going to hurt us all night.”
