Thanks to the support of NHRA fans, aspiring NHRA Funny Car driver Brian Olatunji made the top 10 to co-host Live! with Kelly
. After a nationwide search with more than 10,000 entrants, 10 finalists were chosen, and fan votes will help decide the winner.
Olatunji, a 15-year drag racing veteran, is looking forward to sitting next to Emmy award-winning superstar Kelly Ripa for a day. Fans can vote for Olatunji by logging on to www.cohostsearch.com
and casting their ballot for “Brian Olatunji.” The five with the most votes are guaranteed time with Ripa.
"Co-hosting Live! with Kelly
is a phenomenal opportunity and would be great exposure for
myself and the sport! My team put together a cool video which showcases some of my
personality, and your votes will be the driving force to make this dream possible. I need you to
vote for my video, and be sure to vote today and tomorrow! We are close to the promise land.
There is only one round remaining," said Olatunji.
Voting is open until 3 p.m. Wednesday, July 11. Fans can vote once daily.
