NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race Pit Notes #1
A Winning Proposal - Officials from Harlequin Books and Office Depot, and NASCAR driver Carl Edwards announced the winners of the "Say Yes To A Winning Proposal" contest.
The winners will have their marriage proposal and names featured on the rear television panel of the no. 99 Office Depot Ford for the All-Star Challenge weekend. Entrants had to tell in 25 words or less why their marriage proposal should take place at the All-Star race and what winning would mean to them. The winners were Phillip Pruzensky and Janice Scarfe of Orange County, Calif. Edwards made the selection from more than 650 entries. The rear of the car was unveiled during the press conference and Pruzensky made his proposal to Scarfe. Of course, she did say yes.
"This will be on the back of the race car all night tomorrow unless I tear it up like I have been known to do," said Edwards. "This should be a real memory for them. I had three that I had narrowed down to, and this was the one I chose. They have been fans for a long time. I'm really excited for them."
Harlequin has produced more than 20 NASCAR-themed novels during its past three-year partnership with the sanctioning body. Carl Edwards will also have a part in an upcoming novel to be released later this year.
