The true star of this year's NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race wasn't a driver, or an owner, or even a crew chief. It was an engine builder.
Doug Yates built the engines that won all six segments—the two Sprint Showdown segments by David Ragan, the first of the big race by Greg Biffle and the final three by Carl Edwards. It continues a trend that Chevrolet, Dodge and Toyota teams must find disturbing: Fords dominating some of the biggest races on the schedule, like the Daytona 500, and winning all of the 1.5-mile races—those which define the Chase for the Sprint Cup—thus far this year.
The Yates name may no longer grace a team, as it did when Davey Allison took two All-Star wins in a row in 1991 and 1992, but the tradition of the great Yates motor continues. And even as Saturday night's race may not have been as exciting as fans hoped it would be, it certainly suggested some things about how the rest of the year will play out for the 21 teams involved.
So without further ado, let's look at the 21 drivers who made the All-Star field this year, and what they can expect for the rest of the season:
