We've got the Chase. We've got the Race to the Chase. We've got the Summer Series. And now, another series-within-the-season -- but this time, both the drivers and you can win a whole boatload of cash.

Starting with Indianapolis next week and running for six weeks through Atlanta, the Sprint Summer Showdown (presented by HTC EVO 3D!) will throw out a potential $3 million for one driver, one fan and one charity.

Here's the deal: any driver who wins any of the five lead-up races in Indianapolis, Pocono, Watkins Glen, Michigan and Bristol is eligible for the big-time payout in Atlanta. If one of those drivers wins at Atlanta, boom: $1 million for him, $1 million for his preferred charity and $1 million for one insanely lucky race fan.

So how do you get in on this action? Before each race, hit or, if you happen to be at the race, stop by the Sprint Experience and pick which driver you think will win. If your guy wins, and your name gets picked, you're headed to Atlanta for the final race. (We'll be there. And for an appearance fee, we'll stop by your tailgate.)

There you go. Get on it. And while everybody on earth will be picking Kyle Busch, Tony Stewart or Jimmie Johnson, go against the grain. Pick Landon Cassill or Joe Nemecheck. If they hit, you're money, baby!
