"This was a very cool promotion that AMS did and I'm beyond ecstatic to have won," Spratt said of winning "The Call This Fall. "It still hasn't sunk in; I keep pinching myself, to make sure I'm actually awake!"
A Technical Sergeant for the United States Air Force stationed at Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins, Ga., Spratt found out about the unique promotion by visiting the speedway website and with some encouragement from his daughter, decided to enter.
"I accidentally stumbled onto the promotion when I was researching the seating chart for Atlanta Motor Speedway," Spratt said. "I was planning on taking my 17-year-old daughter, Kayde, to her first NEXTEL Cup race at the end of October and I saw the banner for the contest.
"I thought it would be loads of fun to write a script and record a mini-introduction, not to mention my daughter really encouraged me to enter. She had the utmost faith in me"
Spratt's efforts paid off and he will assume the responsibility of announcing the name, starting position, car make, sponsor and number of all 43 entries in the Pep Boys Auto 500 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series race.
Chosen from 38 entries, Spratt, a 36-year-old West Virginia native didn't think he would have any chance of winning, but decided to submit his version of the introduction anyway.
"I thought I would be listening to the winner of the contest from the grandstands," Spratt said. "I couldn't have even fathomed a guess that I would win. It still hasn't sunk in."
