5/13/04- it was announced that fans will be able to vote in one extra racer to the Nextel Challenge, Carl Long who has never driven a car that was up to speed, has recently purchased a much improved 2004 dodge and will attempt to win the Nextel open, however if he does not win he could still be voted in, this guy is a true racer who hasnt yet caught a break and sincerely deserves this as much or more than anyone, the garunteed check of 75 grand is a nice payout and could help carl improve his self owned team, wouldnt you love to be a part of a driver breaking through? For more information on voting, visit nascar.com and/or carl-long.com.
