NASCAR All-Star Race 2012 Results: Jimmie Johnson Wins, A.J. Allmendinger Places 11th

On Saturday night in Charlotte, the 2012 Sprint Cup Series took a break from points-earning races to run the Sprint NASCAR All-Star Race. The event is a chance for the NASCAR drivers to really let loose and give the fans plenty of reasons to cheer, but the top prize of a $1 million check is also pretty nice.

The check eventually went to Jimmie Johnson, who took the checkered flag easily in the five-segment, 90-lap All-Star Race.

A.J. Allmendinger placed second in the Sprint Showdown earlier in the evening, which allowed him to enter the All-Star Race, along with Showdown winner Dale Earnhardt, Jr.. Allmendinger actually ended up finishing higher in the All-Star Race than his fellow Bay Area driver, Jeff Gordon. Of course, the final standings don't have any bearing, but it's worth nothing.

  1. Jimmie Johnson
  2. Brad Keselowski
  3. Matt Kenseth
