 Casey Neal, the 2005 Red Bull Driver’s Search World Finalist has been selected to be a contestant on the upcoming reality TV show “Racin’ for a Livin’”.  The 17-year-old Ohio High School Senior is among the “Wildcard” section of drivers.  Each contestant must score enough on-line votes to assure continuation in the selection process. Then the real competition begins in front of TV cameras as drivers compete against one another for a fully sponsored ride in NASCAR’s Busch Series.

 “I’m excited about the possibilities,” said Neal.  “So far, I have focused my energies on open wheel racing, but with sponsorship in Open Wheel Racing virtually impossible to find, I welcome a chance to expand my experience by competing in stock cars. I believe there are only two Road Racers in the competition, Ferrari driver Costa Bertuzzi from Italy and myself. It will be tough for us to make that transition to just going left, but I am ready am for it. I just want to race.“

 Neal recently experienced his first foray into stock car racing by testing a Legends car where he quickly found himself comfortable and was lapping at speeds very close to lap record pace after only one afternoon of testing.  The second day of testing brought even better results with Casey leaving the track with a .5 second gap over the nearest competitor. With this kind of result in his very first look at Legends Cars, Neal has been turning heads among the stock car arena and has been in discussions with several teams about competing in select stock car events during 2006.

 “I want to continue my efforts to build my career toward Champ Car and open wheel, but with this opportunity, I want to give these stock cars 110% effort.  If I can be successful in ‘Racin’ for a Livin’ and the NASCAR arena, I feel that it will help all aspects of my career in the future.  It is really good experience and I will learn a lot about being a racing driver in the stock car arena.  I’ve really enjoyed it so far and hopefully I will be one of the drivers selected to continue after the end of the on-line voting process on July 31. “ 

 Neal drove in the opening round of the Star Mazda Series at Sebring earlier this year and is currently negotiating to compete in further select events during the final races of the season either in Star Mazda or even Champ Car Atlantic.  “I think that I will be able to race a few races before the end of the year.  Hopefully, with some good results in both my racing as well as my efforts with ‘Racin’ for a Livin’, I will get some good momentum moving forward toward 2007.  I am really looking forward to it.”
