Tony Stewart NASCAR Nationwide Old Spice Give Kids The World Car No. 20 Revealed
The month of July is off to a fast start thanks to an exciting new partnership between Give Kids The World (GKTW), Procter & Gamble and Joe Gibbs Racing. This August at the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Michigan International Speedway, driver Tony Stewart will drive the No. 20 Old Spice Toyota complete with a brand new, one-of-a-kind new design.
Replacing the traditional candy apple red colors of primary sponsor Old Spice on Stewart’s signature No. 20 car will be a kaleidoscope of colors care of 14-year-old Emily Marsala. Emily, a former GKTW Wish child, won the recent “Design Tony’s Old Spice car” contest that the Village sponsored for Wish children. Her fun-filled sketches, complete with Mayor Clayton on the hood, commemorate Old Spice’s support of GKTW, as well as the ongoing, generous support of GKTW from Old Spice’s parent company – Procter & Gamble (P&G).
Emily and her family will join GKTW president Pamela Landwirth this August for an all-expense paid trip to the Nationwide Series race at Michigan, where they’ll meet Tony Stewart and the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Team, ride with Stewart in the back of a pickup truck as he makes his parade lap around the 2-mile oval and watch the race from the air-conditioned comfort of a skybox suite.
In celebration of this exciting new partnership, GKTW invites you to host a “View–A-Thon” in support of the Give Kids The World No. 20 car. Our goal is to raise $25,000 in honor of this thrilling race - $100 for every mile of the August 16th CARFAX 250 NASCAR Nationwide Race.
