NASCAR has once again changed the All-Star race format.

It will have four segments. The first segment will be 50 laps, and on lap 25 there will be a mandatory green flag pit stop that will require all teams to make four tire stop.

At the end of the first segment, the caution flag will fly and teams will have the option to pit.

The second segment will be 20 laps with the caution being waved at the end of it.

The third segment will also be 20 laps, and will be followed by a 10 minute break. During the break, teams will be permitted to make adjustments.

The fourth and final segment is only 10 laps, with only green flag laps counting.

"I think the 10 lap shoot-out will really produce some exciting racing at the end of the night," said Pemberton.

There will still be a fan vote.

I personally like the changes that were made to the All-Star race.

Please let me know if you like or dislike the changes.
