Charlotte, NC - (WBTV)
As NASCAR fans look forward to speedweeks in May, a fan favorite event has been axed. There will be no All-Star Pit Crew Challenge this year, that's because of lack of sponsorship.
The Pit Crew Challenge has been part of the All-Star week events since 2005, determining the order for selecting pit stalls in the All-Star race. NASCAR will now use qualifying results to determine the order, the same system for all other races.
The Sprint All-Star Race is May 18th at 7:30 PM, the Coke 600 is May 26th at 6:00 PM. Both events are at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
