Tony Stewart and Office Depot announce winner
When Mary McCuan of Edmond, Okla., read about the new Office Depot “Smokin’ Hot” Instant Win Game earlier this year, she decided to enter with the hope of winning one of the game’s $100 Office Depot gift card prizes. However, the 70-year-old NASCAR fan got that and much more when she won the grand prize package for the Office Depot “Smokin’ Hot” Instant Win Game.
As the grand prize winner, McCuan will enjoy a VIP trip for two to this weekend’s Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series™ race at Charlotte Motor Speedway (Sunday, May 30, 6 p.m. EDT, FOX). She’ll spend time with Tony Stewart at the track and even have dinner with members of the No. 14 Office Depot/Old Spice team crew. Plus, she’ll take home a $1,400 Office Depot gift card and receive a trip for two to Stewart’s “Smoke Show” fantasy driving experience at Texas Motor Speedway later this year.
“I never imagined having this opportunity – it’s something I never would have been able to experience on my own,” said McCuan, who will be joined by her son, Randall McCuan, 48, at the race. “Getting to meet Tony Stewart is the most exciting thing!”
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 team, launched the “Smokin’ Hot” Instant Win Game earlier this year at Daytona International Speedway. Fans who made any purchase at an Office Depot store from February 8 through March 6 received a scratch-off card for a chance to instantly win great prizes, including $100 Office Depot gift cards and exclusive Tony Stewart posters. The game had more than 35,000 instant winners.
McCuan, who has never been to a NASCAR race before, is a longtime fan of Dale Earnhardt, Sr., and said Tony Stewart has become one of her favorite drivers in recent years. The Oklahoma native spent 26 years working as a financial management analyst for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in Oklahoma City and retired less than three weeks before the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, which is where her office was located.
“Mary and Randall are going to have a lot of fun with the Office Depot team at the Coke 600,” Stewart said. “It’s always exciting to be part of someone’s first race weekend experience, especially when they’ve been a NASCAR fan for a long time but haven’t made it to the track. I’m looking forward to a great weekend with them, and hopefully we can visit Victory Lane together!”
McCuan is a frequent shopper at her local Office Depot store in Edmond, Okla., and learned about the promotion from the Office Depot Sunday circular ad included in her local newspaper, The Oklahoman.
“We are very excited that such an avid NASCAR fan and loyal Office Depot customer won the Office Depot ‘Smokin’ Hot’ Instant Win Game grand prize package,” said Jeff Herbert, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Office Depot. “Office Depot is proud to provide these kinds of opportunities to our customers who rely on Office Depot to help them Take Care of Business every day.”
