"Free Tibet" car enters Toyota - NASCAR paint scheme contest

A "Free Tibet" race car has entered Toyota
sponsored 2010 NASCAR Paint scheme contest. The
design submitted by Carl Jones from Alaska, USA,
was submitted under the “Causes” category of the contest.

Jones, a long time supporter of the "Free Tibet"
cause told that he found the contest
as an interesting avenue for campaigning for Tibet.

Realising it as an "unusual venue" yet effective
campaigning strategy, he entered the contest in
which the entrants use computers to design NASCAR paint schemes.

His design will go into the finals if it gets
votes putting the car in the top ten list from the "Causes" category.

Toyota will build a NASCAR race car from the
design which gets the maximum vote and the car
will be put on display for an entire race weekend
in Phoenix, Arizona later this year.

"What a great idea to put the "Free Tibet"
campaign in front of thousands of people that
probably don’t hear much about it" Jones said.

In the finals, 100 hundred cars from top ten
designs from ten categories will compete for the
maximum vote to win the contest and get displayed at the race.

In the current voting phase, there are 11 days
left to generate as much votes as possible and an
individual can vote once a day.

Jones is hopeful that if the "Free Tibet" design
wins the contest, the message will be broadcast
to thousands of television viewers and an
opportunity for some discussion on the same is also expected.

Carl Jones and his friends have been voting and
urge more votes from "Free Tibet" supporters to win the contest.
