With one final 10-lap sprint still to go, Kevin Harvick was in front of the field after the fourth and final 20-lap segment of Saturday night’s 30th annual Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Harvick took over the lead from Jamie McMurray midway through the fourth segment.
Heading into the final 10-lap segment, McMurray was in second, followed by Brad Keselowski, Kurt Busch and Brian Vickers.
Sixth through 10th were Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Clint Bowyer and Carl Edwards.
Kasey Kahne led at the end of the second and third segments, but then lost the lead during an early pit stop in the fourth segment.
Kahne then hit the outside retaining wall hard, dropping him to 12th after the fourth segment.
Seven of the 22 cars that started the race had early endings on the evening due to wrecks: Kyle Busch, Joey Logano, AJ Allmendinger, Jeff Gordon, Martin Truex Jr., Greg Biffle and Ryan Newman.
