All the fans have to do is answer one simple question in 100 words or less, put up by the Daytona officials, which is â€œWhy I Should Be Mayor of Speedweeks 2010â€. In all fairness the top three entries would be selected by the designated Daytona International Speedway officials and posted on Facebook for fans to vote. Fans can then vote for the entry they think does most to be deserved to be elected as Mayor. The entry with the most votes would automatically win the opportunity of a lifetime.
