Ever dreamed of becoming a professional racing announcer? Bristol Dragway is providing the opportunity. One lucky fan will provide the talent.

Bristol Dragway is searching for a new announcer to pump up the crowd during its 2010 Fas Mart Street Fights series in Thunder Valley.

Beginning today, anyone interested in the position can submit an audition video to the Dragway staff for the opportunity to become the official announcer for this season.  

Not only is it the job of a lifetime, the winner will get paid to do it. That's right...the winner, who must commit to the full 17-event Street Fights schedule, will receive a paycheck for working each race.  

As the Fas Mart Street Fights announcer, the winner will be responsible for providing the play-by-play for each event from March through September. The announcer also will take part in promotions and will interact with race fans during events.

Contestants can make their submissions through February 28. Videos should be approximately three minutes in length and should be free of profanities and obscenities. The video should explain why the candidate wants to be the next Street Fights announcer. Applicants also must read a short script found on the Bristol Dragway website to give an example of their ability to excite the crowd.



Knowledge of drag racing is a plus, but is not a necessity for anyone willing to learn the sport.

Online voting will take place here March 1-14 for all submitted entries. The votes will be tallied and Dragway staff will contact the four finalists. At the March 27 Street Fights season opener, the four finalists will rotate announcing duties throughout the event. On April 1, the winner will be announced.
