Voting for the Ford Customer Service Division's Second Annual Funny Car Design Contest to Support Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) ends Friday, August 14.

More than 300 JDRF children submitted their Funny Car design and eagerly await your vote to be featured on the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Shelby Mustang driven by Bob Tasca III during the NHRA Carolina Nationals in Concord, NC on September 18-20.

Until August 14, the public is invited to visit www.jdrf.org/ford, and vote for their favorite children's design by making a monetary donation to JDRF.

The winning designer will be selected on August 17, 2009. They will be invited to the NHRA Carolinas Nationals in Concord, NC, with his or her parents for an official unveiling of their paint scheme, and a chance to spend time with the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Racing team and see their design run during qualifying sessions for the race.

Last year's winner was Samuel Millard, a six-year-old resident of Greenville, Texas, and member of the Greater Dallas Chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Millard and his family were special guests at the NHRA U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis where his design appeared on Tasca's Ford Shelby Mustang Nitro Funny Car. Last year's contest drew 306 designs and raised more than $84,000 for JDRF.

Diabetes affects more Ford families than any other disease. Ford Motor Company has raised more than $27 million for JDRF since the grassroots campaign started in 1998.
