We first posted this on February 28, but remember, you need to vote every day until March 14. If it wins, in addition to garnering a great deal of priceless publicity for the Wildland Firefighter Foundation, the designer is going to donate the cash value of the prizes to the WFF.
We have some serious competition… as of today another design has over 37,000 votes, compared to the 6,743 for the WFF design. (UPDATE March 6: As Ken explained in a comment below, if the car makes it into the top 10 in the first round we still have a great chance of winning.)
NASCAR is sponsoring a contest in which you can design a paint scheme on one of their drivers’ cars, then anyone can vote once a day on their favorite design. The winning paint scheme will actually get painted onto a car and will help pace the field at the 2010 NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race on May 22.
Tom Stein and his wife, of Boise, Idaho, designed this car to benefit the Wildland Firefighter Foundation which assists the families of fallen and injured wildland firefighters. Tom’s father was an air tanker pilot at Hemet-Ryan air tanker base in southern California and Tom has been a big supporter of the WFF.
If this car wins it will result in a lot of recognition for the WFF and could help support the families of our fallen and injured firefighters.
VOTE once a day for the car.
