Think you can burn more rubber than NASCAR's own Carl Edwards? Guess what? You probably can't! But there's maybe sorta kinda a chance for you to try.

Missouri native son and back-flip enthusiast Edwards (he's from Columbia) is doing a contest with Midwest Ford Dealers. Crazed NASCAR fans, Edwards fans and Ford fans from Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska can submit a video at www.racecarledwards.com detailing why THEY should get to race Edwards. So the winner gets to seriously race the Carl Edwards, right?

Well...
"I can't really tell you exactly what's going to happen, but there will be a race," says contest spokesperson Brad Hill.

Uh huh.

"We'll see. It's going to be fun. They're going to get to hang out with Carl, they'll get the chance to be in a video." So basically, it sounds like Carl's not losing any sleep over some phenom from the internet embarrassing him.

The winner will be chosen from videos submitted from today till August 31st. That lucky soul will get to drive--not keep--a Ford 2011 and hang out with Carl Edwards at the Kansas Speedway on September 8th. The video will be featured on Ford's social networking platforms. (If you win, tell us how the shoot went!)
