CHARLOTTE, N.C., (May 28, 2000) - The field of the Chase Racing All-Stars competition has been narrowed to the Top-10 in each category. "This is really exciting to see the competition taking shape," said panelist Ernie Irvan. "Every time the group gets smaller, it is harder and harder to make your choices." MRN's Winston Kelly, who is filling in for Humpy Wheeler during this voting period, finds his task is not as easy as it appears. "You see these guys every week and know how hard their jobs are," Kelly said. "But you don't realize how good they are until you have to pick one over another. This is a great program and I'm glad I can help out." The Chase Racing All-Stars program was designed to bring attention to the hard working team members who are outstanding in their positions. The field will eventually be narrowed down to an All-Star Team 1, Team 2, and Team 3. These exceptional crew members will receive their awards at the Chase Racing All-Stars Banquet to be held in their honor in December. Prior to the Coca-Cola 600, the Top-10 finalists in each position will receive a Chase Racing All-Stars duffle bag and their new purple Chase Racing All-Stars Mechanix radio belt. The belts help the media and selection panelists denote which crew members they need to keep a special eye on. The field after the second round of voting appears in alphabetical order in each category and are as follows: <pre> Chase Racing All-Stars Ten Finalists in Each Position (Alphabetical Order)
