If you owned a race team and were put to the task of finding the next young racing star, who would you chose?
That’s the question we’re asking short track racing fans worldwide as we continue preparations for the 2019 Short Track Draft presented by PFC Brakes on Speed51.com.
The fan vote for this year’s Short Track Draft is now open on the Speed51.com Five Star Race Car Bodies Facebook Feed. Beginning Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. ET, fans will have 24 hours to vote for the number-one prospect that they would want on their team.
Instead of picking your favorite driver or family member, your job is to pick the driver who you would want behind the wheel of a race car on your driver development team.
The rules for the 2019 Draft are as follows:
- The driver you choose must be 25 years of age or younger as of May 1, 2019.
- The driver may not have more than seven scheduled starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, or Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series during the 2019 season.
- The driver may is not eligible if they made more than seven starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, or Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series during the 2018 season.
- The driver cannot be last year’s number-one pick, Harrison Burton.
If the driver you choose meets all of those requirements, all you have to do is place a comment with that driver’s name in an official Short Track Draft fan vote Facebook post that will be pinned to the top of our Facebook page.
Fans can vote once during the voting period, which will end Wednesday, April 24 at 9 a.m. ET.
In addition to voting on Facebook, fans can also use the hashtag #51Draft to cast their vote. Any person caught casting more than one vote on each platform will have all of their votes removed from this year’s fan vote.
In the end, the driver with the most votes will be awarded a first-place vote towards this year’s Short Track Draft presented by PFC Brakes. The driver with the second most votes will be awarded a second-place vote and so on.
The winner of the fan vote will be announced on Wednesday, April 24 once the votes are tallied. The first overall pick in the 2019 Short Track Draft presented by PFC Brakes will be announced at 5 p.m. ET on Thursday, April 25.
