Office Depot launches new website
The start of the 2009 NASCAR® season is almost here, with two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Tony Stewart set to make his debut behind the wheel of the No. 14 Office Depot/Old Spice Chevy Impala SS at the famed Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway later this week.
In celebration of this exciting milestone, Office Depot® (NYSE: ODP), the Official Office Products Partner of NASCAR and co-primary sponsor of Tony Stewart and the No. 14 Office Depot/Old Spice Chevy, announced the launch of its all-new OfficeDepotRacing.com website. The site is designed as an interactive destination for millions of loyal Tony Stewart fans and as a showcase for the new No. 14 Office Depot/Old Spice race team.
"I'm very proud to have so many supportive and enthusiastic fans, and OfficeDepotRacing.com is a great place for them to keep up with the entire No. 14 Office Depot/Old Spice team," said Stewart, who is taking on the role of driver/owner at Stewart-Haas Racing in 2009. "This year is a really special one for me -- being able to drive for my own NASCAR team -- and I want to share that sense of excitement with my fans every step of the way. We're going to have a lot of fun."
An exclusive feature on the new OfficeDepotRacing.com site will be "Tony's Smokin' Deals," giving fans the inside scoop on special products and deals available only at Office Depot. The site also provides visitors with race advances, post-race reports, up-to-date driver and show car appearance schedules, featured crew member profiles and information about how to participate in special Office Depot Racing promotions and sweepstakes throughout the season. Now through February 28, for example, fans can enter "At The Speed of Smart" sweepstakes at OfficeDepotRacing.com for a chance to have Tony Stewart accompany them on a $14,000 shopping spree at an Office Depot store.
Fans can also get involved by submitting their own photos and videos, download wallpaper and get Tony Stewart merchandise. Plus, Stewart will answer fan questions submitted via the website in his "Ask Tony" column.
"Tony Stewart has millions of loyal fans, and we are excited to create an online experience catering to them," said Chuck Rubin, President of North American Retail for Office Depot. "Whether we are helping customers take care of business with great product values or providing fun ways for them to get involved in NASCAR, Office Depot is thrilled to bring everyone together at the new OfficeDepotRacing.com."
