Original artwork by CMT Insider host Katie Cook and CMT Top Twenty Countdown host Lance Smith are included in a celebrity poll to pick the design for the ticket of NASCAR’s biggest race, the 50th running of the Daytona 500. Some of the most famous names in sports and entertainment, including Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Foxworthy and Kelly Ripa, have created original artwork inspired by the race, and the public is invited to vote on which celebrity design will appear on the 2008 Daytona 500 ticket. The Top 10 celebrity designs will be announced June 15. A blue ribbon judging panel will unveil the 2008 Daytona 500 ticket live from Daytona International Speedway on July 5. All original celebrity artwork will be auctioned online to benefit the Jeff Gordon Foundation. See the finalists for the Daytona 500 ticket design here.
