Jeff Foxworthy Wins DAYTONA 500 Celebrity Tickets for Charity Competition

ThatsRacin.com - USA - The online battle for ultimate bragging rights has ended, leaving one celebrity with the last laugh. Jeff Foxworthy, star of the hit FOX television show, “Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader,” has been voted the winner of the DAYTONA 500 “Celebrity Tickets for Charity” competition. Foxworthy, the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history, was selected from 10 celebrity finalists for the honor of having his artistic vision immortalized on the most coveted ticket in all of motorsports – the ticket to the 50th running of the DAYTONA 500 (Feb. 17, 2008).

To commemorate the historic milestone of NASCAR’s biggest and most prestigious race, Daytona International Speedway (DIS) launched Celebrity Tickets for Charity, a platform for celebrities from all walks of life to showcase their artistic talents and inspire philanthropic giving. Over 40 celebrity designs were submitted and displayed at www.DAYTONA500.com.

An online fan vote began May 1 and drew over 120,000 votes cast for their favorite celebrity “artists,” narrowing the star-studded field to only 10 finalists. A blue ribbon panel made up of distinguished members from the NASCAR community was tasked with selecting the winning ticket design. Foxworthy’s rendering, a whimsical tribute to the DAYTONA 500 and its patriotic roots, was the majority favorite.
