NASCAR's Mike Helton, Drivers Film Spot Promoting All-Star Race

Charlotte Motor Speedway yesterday gathered a group of drivers at Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s replica Western town to film a Western-themed commercial. The spot, which features Denny Hamlin, Kasey Kahne, Kurt Busch, NASCAR President Mike Helton and others, will promote the '11 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series All-Star Race.

The spot shows the drivers in Western apparel preparing for a showdown. As they square off in the street, Helton, playing the role of sheriff, appears and says, "Hold your horsepower boys, this will be settled at the Sprint All-Star Showdown at Charlotte Motor Speedway." The spot closes with a call number for race tickets.
