NASCAR Changes All-Star Eligibility

NASCAR has changed the eligibility requirements for the Sprint All-Star Race, which will allow Matt Kenseth, driver of the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota, and Ryan Newman, driver of the No. 31 Richard Childress Racing Chevy, to participate.

Under the new rule, any full-time driver who is a former Sprint Cup champion or All-Star winner is eligible for the event.

Kenseth and Newman haven’t won a race this season, and they did not win last season, which made them ineligible under the old rules
