The All-Star Race is a NASCAR fan's dream, a 100-lap sprint with no points, only millions in prize money at stake. That's enough to spark fireworks in the final 10-lap sprint to the checkers, a 5-minute, hold-your-breath experience where even brotherly love won't get in the way of first place. No one knows that better than Kurt and Kyle Busch, whose legendary wreck in 2007 paved the way for Kevin Harvick's win while leaving a family feud in its wake that took months to fix. "It was my little brother and he was on the gas," said Kurt afterward. "He was racing hard. A million bucks were up for grabs, and I'm sure that's why he didn't lift and I'm sure that's why I didn't give an inch."
