Todd Bodine V. Ron Hornaday Jr.: The Challenge of Champions in the Truck Series

Horn FanSenior Writer IJune 22, 2009

Copart Inc. has announced a new sweepstakes they've added. It's called the Copart Challenge of Champions in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

They sponsor two truck series champions, Ron Hornaday Jr., a three-time champion, most recently in 2007 and Todd Bodine the 2006 champion.

The two racers will both drive Copart sponsored trucks four times a piece over the six races that make makes up the Challenge of Champions.

The winner will be the driver who accumulates the most points while driving a Copart sponsored truck during the specified six races. The victor will win a trophy at Talladega, the final race of the challenge.

It's just not either Hornaday or Bodine winning, but fans can win great prices by voting on the Copart driver they think will win the Challenge. Voting starts June 19 and ends Sept. 27.

Copart will select two winners randomly who've voted for either Hornaday or Bodine in the Challenge to get a first place prize.

It's a VIP experience to the Challenge of Champions finale in Talladega. The two lucky winners will get tickets to the entire race weekend, but also receive transportation to the race, lodging, and pit passes for them and a guest to see their favorite Copart truck series driver in action.

Plus, the first-place winner who's chosen the driver that wins the Challenge gets the grand prize of autographed racing memorabilia from the Talladega race and a lifetime buyer's registration at

On each race-day in the challenge, there will be five race day drawings in which 10 fans who voted can be randomly chosen to win race apparel.

Should either Hornaday or Bodine win a race in the challenge, fans who voted for the driver will be chosen randomly to win prizes as well.

"Copart wants to provide NASCAR fans with a way to participate in our sponsorships of these two great truck champions and cheer on their favorite driver, while also learning more about Copart," said Copart President Jay Adair.

"This friendly competition provides NASCAR fans not only to opportunity to fuel their passion for racing, but also the opportunity to fuel their passion for cars by visiting our website."

"Copart wants NASCAR fans to know that we are the best place to find cars," Adair said.
