Prior to 2004, the NASCAR Winston Cup Series' all-star exhibition race held at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC. Previous race winners (up to the previous running), as well as the winners of an "open" race (The Winston Open) and a "sprint" race (The No Bull Sprint/No Bull 25's) would race for a handsome purse (the winner received $1 million in 2003).
Starting in 2004, the race will be known as the NASCAR Nextel All-Star Challenge.
The Winston was the ultimate fans' race.
