LEBANON, Tenn. -

A racecar driver is placing one of Nashville's well-known missing persons cases back in the spotlight this weekend.
 
Metro police say they have spent thousands of hours searching for Tabitha Tuders.

Tuders disappeared on her way to school in east Nashville on April 29, 2003, at the age of 13.

Metro police spokesperson Don Aaron said, "There is someone out there with a key piece of information that could help break this case wide open."

So, racecar driver Kevin Conway is stepping up to help, hoping to help find that key information that police need.

Tabitha's picture, along with contact and reward information, is on the deck lid of Conway's racecar, and with every lap, it's a reminder.

Conway said, "As the cars go around the racetrack, the grandstands are all very high, so all the fans are focused down on the cars, but more importantly, on TV, the television cameras are able to focus from the top down on the cars, which gives it prime real estate space to be able to make the face identifiable."

Conway has been featuring pictures and information from different cold cases on his car in every state.

"It's the third year of the program. We're featuring cold cases and helping find missing children," he said. "The visibility does make a difference, and it does bring awareness to the cases that are out there."

Police say every time the case surfaces into the public eye, they hope for that one break.

Not only will more than 50,000 race car fans see Tuders' picture as car number 87 zooms by at the Nashville Superspeedway, but the race will also be broadcast across the nation.

Anyone with information on Tudors' whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.

The FBI is offering a $25,000 reward and Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward.

The NASCAR Nationwide Series race gets underway at 2 p.m. Saturday.
