AJ Allmendinger won for the first time in
his NASCAR career Saturday night, winning the Sprint Showdown to
earn a berth in the All-Star race.
Sam Hornish Jr. finished second to also advance into the $1
million main event at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
For both drivers, it was their best showing yet in their short
NASCAR careers. Granted, it came in a 40-lap sprint absent of
NASCAR's biggest stars. They were already qualified for the
All-Star race and sat out the preliminary, which was for drivers
not already in the show.
