Remember the Winston Million? Looks like Sprint is trying to get some of the excitement back with their version:

Quote:
Sprint announced the biggest promotion in its history as the title sponsor of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series: the Sprint Summer Showdown presented by HTC EVO 3D. The six-consecutive-race series runs from Indianapolis on July 31 to Atlanta on Sept. 4 and puts a $3 million purse on the line for a driver, a driver's charity and one lucky race fan. Any driver who wins one of the five NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events between the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway will become a finalist for the $3 million Sprint Summer Showdown payout on Labor Day Weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

If one of those five drivers wins the Advocare 500 at Atlanta, then the driver, the driver's charity and one lucky race fan will each collect $1 million. Fans can enter each week for their chance at the million-dollar prize by picking which driver they believe will win that week's race at sprint.com/speed or by visiting the Sprint Experience display at every NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event. After each week's race, one race fan will be randomly chosen from those fans who correctly picked that week's winning driver. The lucky fan chosen after each race will enjoy an all-expenses paid trip to Atlanta Motor Speedway and be there in person to see whether his or her driver can win at Atlanta. If that driver claims the Sprint Summer Showdown presented by HTC EVO 3D, the fan will win $1 million.
