Rookie letting fans select hair color

Matt Sielsky is making his own fashion statement in the American
Speed Association stock car series.

Following a fan vote on the Internet, the 23-year-old driver has
dyed his hair.

"The fans voted to color my hair red, but I thought I'd go
ahead and make it red and white to match the car," Sielsky said.

The ASA rookie, coming off a one-week break to reorganize his
struggling team, will show off his new colors Saturday night in
Indiana in the Tecumseh 300 at Salem Speedway.

"We just want to grab a little attention, especially from
fellow rookie Johnny Sauter," Sielsky said of the series leader.
"Maybe the new color will be a good luck charm, and it will help
us steal the attention away from Johnny on the track, too."

Sauter has won six races this year, including a series-record
five straight.
