Who is NASCAR's best 'better half' on the track?

   The better halves of some of NASCAR’s couples will showcase their skills at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the third consecutive season.

   The wives and girlfriends of several NASCAR drivers will compete in the “Better Half Dash,” a 25-lap race in U.S. Legend Cars International Bandoleros around the frontstretch quarter-mile track on Oct. 10 prior to Sprint Cup Series qualifying.

   The race will take place prior to Sprint Cup Series qualifying that night. The winning driver will receive $10,000 to be paid to different charities.
