Filling out the 21-driver grid this year will be the winner of the sport's fan vote, a popularity contest that could win your candidate over $1 million. That's exactly how Kasey Kahne did it in 2008, thanking his fans by coming from shotgun on the field (24th) to score his first and only victory in the All-Star Race. With so much at stake, drivers with long odds to get in on merit have hatched all sorts of different schemes in an effort to get votes. Scott Speed's is the most outrageous this year: with a fan vote victory, he's promised to pie Kyle Busch in the face on national television.
