Since the popularity of stock car racing seems to gain more momentum as every NASCAR season passes, it seems only natural to bring another spin-off to market. "Reality Racing – The Rookie Challenge," will begin its 13-part series sometime in 2007, where 15 drivers will compete for a chance to drive in a 'NASCAR sanctioned event' and gain the much-needed name recognition to score a sponsored ride.
Tryouts are set to begin within the next few months (the dates haven't been disclosed), with the final 15 drivers assigned a series of challenges that will make up the hour-long episodes. Bobby Allison and other ex-racers will man the judging stations, where they'll be on the lookout, not just for raw racing skills, but also desire, appearance and personality.
Whatever your feelings are towards stock car racing, it's about time we showcase America's real talent.
