Alex “The Car Girl” Rogeo is one of the hardest working people we have ever met in the car world, which is one of the reasons we are so proud to have her represent Hedman Hedders at drag races and car shows all over the country. Now, Alex is vying for a $10,000 sponsorship with Bell Helmets in the “Through the Visor” contest. If Alex wins, she plans to use this money towards procuring her next race car, a late model NHRA Stock Eliminator car. Alex needs your help to vote on her video and spread the word all through the month of August to get the votes necessary to beat out the other 19 finalists. Check out her video here: http://throughthevisor.bellracing.com/alex-rogeo and make sure to cast your vote and share the contest with your friends.
