CAR--NASCAR's NOVELA

FONTANA, Calif. -- NASCAR has made a novela. In an unlikely move to expand the stock car racing circuit's fan base among Latinos, NASCAR has produced a soap opera-style series with Univision, featuring five-minute webisodes and starring well-known Mexican actress Kate Del Castillo as a passionate driver. The star and the producers believe this unlikely blend of speed and cheese is a great way to catch the casual Latino sports fan's attention. By Greg Beacham.
