Big news NASCAR fans… The announcement during the luncheon is that you will now have a say on how the Sprint Unlimited at Daytona will go. Sprint is inviting you to help design the race. What you will have to do first is download their NASCAR mobile ’13 application.
How it works. Well, basically you will vote on four different elements of the race.
The format of the race, meaning how many laps will take place during each segment.
The type of pit stops after the first segment, if you vote for there to be any required in the first place. How many cars will be eliminated after the second segment and what fire suit Miss Sprint Cup will wear on Victory Lane.
From what I understand, this is something that has never been done before.
“We are excited to provide our fan base this first-of it-kind opportunity to directly be involved in determining the race’s format and in-race decisions, “said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR vice president of competition. “By allowing our fans this type of interaction, it is our hope that more fans will be tuned in to the event than ever before.”
The Sprint Unlimited at Daytona will be February 16th. If you’re going, cast your vote and have your voice heard! The voting window for the race’s format closed Wednesday, February 13th. The voting windows for the pit stop and elimination will close during the race.
Now, keep in mind, you may also cast your vote online at NASCAR.com/SprintUnlimited.
