May 15, 2013 by Mark
The 10 Greatest Days in Racing gets underway this weekend at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, and no doubt flyer printing and poster printing were used by the Speedway to attract as many people as possible to audition for the recent ‘Speedway Superstar Tour’.
The tour began in Pineville on May 1 and went through 10 cities in the Carolinas before coming to an end today. Helping out at the beginning of the Speedway was SPEED personality and NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Kenny Wallace.
Coca-Cola presented the tour, which enabled talented performers to try out at a mobile audition studio. Requirements for contestants were that they were at least 18 years old and needed to perform for 60 seconds, without music, either ‘God Bless America’ or the national anthem of the United States. All performances were be videotaped and there will be a web site where people can vote for one of the performances until May 22.
Out of all the contestants, five will be chosen to give a performance during the 10 Greatest Days in Racing. Races will include the 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race of the North Carolina Education Lottery and the Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.
It will be held from May 17 – 26. According to the president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway, Marcus Smith, this event will help to get many race fans more involved and enable people to some great performances throughout the Carolinas.
