2015 Frontstretch Cup: Staff Predictions for the Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte

Welcome to our eighth year of staff predictions! Each week, our experts attempt to tell you who the winner of each Cup race will be. Take a look to see who your favorite writers think will win it all (or at least score some points) this week!

Think you can out-prognosticate our staff? Leave your picks in the comments and see how they stack up!

Because the All-Star Race is a non-points paying event, we’ve got a little different system. Our writers chose the drivers they thought would grab the two transfer spots from the Sprint Showdown into the All-Star Race, the fan vote and the All-Star trophy. Each correct pick is worth one point, and if anyone gets all four correct, it will be worth a bonus point for a total of five. No points will be lost this week!
