KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Brad Keselowski doesn't want to take all the credit for wholesale changes to the All-Star Race format.

Perhaps because he doesn't want all the blame, either.

NASCAR announced the new format for the May 21 race at Charlotte on Friday. It will feature two 50-lap segments followed by a 13-lap shootout in which a portion of the field will be on fresh tires, an idea dreamed up by Keselowski that is intended to spice up what had become a lame $1 million dash for cash.
