Ballots are currently open through April 26 and fans of both Bell and the "World's Fastest Car Show" can cast their vote at www.votejustinbell.com and view a special promotional film .
"When we set out to introduce the 'World's Fastest Car Show' with eBay Motors and eBay Mobile we knew we were going to offer a unique program that was fast-paced and fun for both automotive enthusiasts and Internet audiences well beyond the traditional motoring sector," said Bell, who is one of just five finalists in his Webby category. "To have made the ballot for 16th annual Webbys in just our first year seems like a pretty solid endorsement that we achieved the right mix to appeal to car junkies and also a good segment of Internet audiences in total. It has been a ball, we are going to have even more fun in our second season, and I am incredibly grateful to everyone at eBay Motors and eBay Mobile, but most of all to our incredible viewers and fans that enjoy the ride with us each and every week."
In addition to being among the first programs of its kind in the world of automotive journalism and entertainment, the "World's Fastest Car Show" is the first originally produced media content for eBay Motors, and the first to be featured in any of eBay's mobile offerings. Two versions of each weekly episode were made available in the premiere season, one produced for the eBay Motors Mobile application , and the other produced for the eBay Motors website
