NASCAR, Texas Motor Speedway and Endless Left Turns

Calling All Sweethearts: Texas Motor Speedway Wants You

We've got the Mavericks dancers, the Cowboys cheerleaders and now -- starting today -- tryouts to be one of Texas Motor Speedway's Great American Sweethearts.

Like drivers of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series TMS is on the chase this summer, searching for the newest member of the Great American Sweethearts to join Becky, Brittany and Stephanie for the Nov. 3-6 AAA Texas 500 weekend and the entire 2012 race season.

Beginning today through Friday, Aug. 19, TMS will accept applications to become the fourth Sweetheart. Details can be found here.

The grand-prize winner will receive an $8,000 contract with TMS, two-year modeling contract with The Campbell Agency of Dallas and suite tickets to each of the major race weekends in Fort Worth.

Said TMS grand poobah Eddie Gossage, "'The Great American Sweethearts have given our 'No Limits' campaign that began last August the attitude that it's needed and adding a fourth member will only enhance that in 2012. NASCAR fans have come to recognize Becky, Brittany and Stephanie and this opportunity will serve as a life-changing experience for one lucky winner."

The search will be narrowed to a select group of semifinalists, all of which will be invited to TMS' 2012 schedule announcement party at Gilley's in Dallas on Tuesday, Aug. 23.

Semifinalists will be featured with photos, a bio and Q&A to help earn the fans vote on , beginning Aug. 23 and continuing through Friday, Sept. 9. Finalists will undergo an interview process with representatives from Texas Motor Speedway and The Campbell Agency; a photo shoot and video interview; and a mock trial with radio and television commercials.

The winner will be revealed on Friday, Oct. 7.
