WHAT: NASCAR NEXTEL Cup champion Tony Stewart is working with Old Spice to give a lucky fan the sweat towel right off his shoulder (un-washed)! After winning the Banquet 400 in Kansas City on Sunday, Stewart handed over his Old Spice towel (seen in countless post-race interviews) for a charity auction benefiting The Victory Junction Gang Camp. Starting at 9 a.m. EDT on Monday, October 2, fans can place a bid for the autographed towel by logging onto www.OldSpice.com or www.eBay.com. Old Spice, the No. 1 antiperspirant/deodorant stick and personal cleansing choice for guys in the U.S., is hosting the weeklong auction. The brand has sponsored NEXTEL Cup winner Tony Stewart for the past five seasons. FUN FACT: During an average race, temperatures inside Tony's car reach up to 150 degrees, and he can lose several pounds of sweat. Tony relies on Old Spice antiperspirants, deodorants and body washes to stay cool and smell great both before and after a race. INTERVIEW OPPS: An Old Spice sweat expert is available to discuss the towel auction and share other sports-related sweat factoids. BACKGROUND: After every victory this season, including both NEXTEL Cup and Busch races, Stewart will immediately autograph and hand over his Old Spice towel in the winner's circle for an auction to benefit The Victory Junction Gang Camp. This auction program has already raised $2,400 for the camp. Old Spice is a proud sponsor of NASCAR NEXTEL Cup champion Tony Stewart. Old Spice (NYSE: PG) is the No. 1 antiperspirant/deodorant and personal cleansing choice for guys in the U.S. Victory Junction Gang Camp enriches the lives of children with chronic or life-threatening illnesses by creating camping experiences that are memorable, and physically and medically safe.
