KING OF THE TRACK CHALLENGE IN THE CHICAGO SUN-TIMES IS UNDERWAY

Share:
This isn't your typical weekly pick-to-win column in your local newspaper. This is motorsports and that means excitement. Because of the large number of race fans in the Chicago area, the excitement Chicagoland Speedway has brought, as well as the increased motorsports coverage in the media, Chicago's top media personalities are taking part in the King of the Track Challenge.

The weekly pick-to-win the race-of-the-week challenge will be featured in the Chicago Sun-Times, one of the 10 largest daily newspapers in the country. It will be part of the "Racing Report" every Friday in the sports section during the race season. This week marks the third week for the King of the Track Challenge in the Chicago Sun-Times. "The Winston", the all-star spectacle of the NASCAR Winston Cup Series, which takes place Saturday, May 17th in Charlotte, N.C., is one of the season's biggest events and this week's race-of-the-week for the King of the Track challenge.

Joining in the cast of those who will be trying to pick the race winner each race will be Matthew Alexander, vice president/general manager of Chicagoland Speedway; Dan Cahill, racing expert for the Chicago Sun-Times; Mark Schanowski, NBC-5 Sports anchor and host of SpeedSunday; Jurko, ESPN Radio 1000 host; Rambling Ray, US*99.5 morning radio host and race fans through a weekly online poll at Chicagolandspeedway.com.

"The growth of motorsports, not only in the amount of race fans in the Chicago area, but in media coverage both in local and national outlets, has been fabulous over the past couple years and this weekly poll featuring Chicago's top media personalities and race fans is a testament to that," said Matthew Alexander, vice president and general manager of Chicagoland Speedway. "I look forward to being a part of this each week and maybe even taking home the crown."

One race each week from either the NASCAR Winston Cup Series or IRL IndyCar Series will be selected as the race of the week. In an attempt to be King of the Track, race fans will go head-to-head with Chicagoland Speedway's VP/GM Matthew Alexander and Chicago's top media personalities with picking which driver they think will win the race of the week.

Points will be based on the total number earned by the chosen driver during the race of week. Points will also accumulate throughout the year to determine who is the 2003 season King of the Track. The driver who receives a majority of the votes cast online will be the race fan's chosen driver. Despite who the majority of race fans vote for, those who pick the winning driver will be entered into a random drawing for Chicagoland Speedway merchandise.

Race fans who think they have what it takes to be the King of the Track can voice their choice by logging onto Chicagolandspeedway.com and selecting the driver they think will win the race of the week in the King of the Track Challenge.
