BFGoodrich Tires and the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge are offering a chance for aspiring drivers to join the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge.
The Mustang Challenge Driver Shootout will put one driver behind the wheel for the season-finale Mustang Challenge race at Miller Motorsports Park on September 11. Racers who think that they've got what it takes can upload a video demonstrating why they would be a good candidate to race in the Mustang Challenge. Drivers can use videos that have been posted on BFGoodrich's Nation of Go, YouTube, or a video site of their choice.
Entries will be accepted starting immediately, with the deadline for filing an entry being the checkered flag for round nine of the 2010 Mustang Challenge season at Autobahn Speedway(August 1st). From the submitted videos, five entrants will be selected as final contestants.
From there, the finalists will travel to Miller Motorsports Park and receive training at the Ford Racing Miller Performance Training Center before being run through a variety of exercises in and out of the Ford Mustangs. As well as the lap times, the panel of judges will look for other skills, from data analysis and media interaction to the ability to find a strong set up quickly.
All applicants must hold a valid race license (SCCA, NASA, ASN-FIA Kart, – see Rules for more information), but not have any pro racing starts on their racing résumé. The contest is open to individuals aged 18 and older residing in the United States and Canada.
The judges will review all eligible videos received during the contest period. The judges will evaluate each video based on quality, content, personality and overall entertainment and select the five videos that best convey a candidate who can go the full distance to make it to race in the Mustang Challenge.
