'Yard Crashers' casting call Sunday at NASCAR Hall of Fame

Matt Blashaw, host of DIY Network’s “Yard Crashers,” wants to give a racing-themed backyard makeover to an area fan and homeowner.

Blashaw, a licensed landscape contractor, and crew will meet with fans from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday at the NASCAR Hall of Fame, 400 E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Homeowners must bring a picture of their current backyard and be ready to convince Blashaw why they are the worthy fan to receive a free backyard makeover.

Blashaw will select the yard, which will appear in a future episode of “Yard Crashers,” which will be filmed in early 2014.

There is no charge to participate in the casting call, parking is available in the hall’s Brevard Street garage for $3 for the first 30 minutes, $1 for each additional 30 minutes, up to $15 maximum. Details: twitter.com/nascarhall.
