The NASCAR Foundation Teams With Drivers For The Partners For Paws Spectacular

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Jan. 25, 2008) -- The NASCAR Foundation is joining NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers Greg Biffle, Ryan Newman and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series driver Mike Skinner for the Partners For Paws Spectacular, a live and silent auction on Feb. 13 to benefit several animal welfare charities.

The event will be held at the Daytona 500 Club at Daytona International Speedway at 6 p.m. and will feature an autograph session with the event hosts. Net proceeds from the event will benefit the Greg Biffle Foundation, Ryan Newman Foundation and Halifax Humane Society, all charities with missions to improve animal welfare.

The auction boasts several VIP NASCAR experiences and hundreds of autographed items including items from past NASCAR events, sheet metal, die casts, crew uniforms, helmets, beautifully-framed photographs and prints, caps, jackets, collectibles and several multi-signature items.

"My wife, Krissie, and I first got involved with the Halifax Humane Society when we toured their shelter and helped out with their auction in 2005," said NASCAR driver and event co-host Ryan Newman. "They do such amazing work rescuing, spaying and neutering animals in their community. I'm excited about taking this event to the next level by partnering with Halifax Humane Society, The NASCAR Foundation and the Greg Biffle Foundation to make this benefit a national effort to support animal welfare."

Tickets are $15 if purchased in advance by Feb. 4, or $20 at the door. Children under 14 are free. Dinner is provided with your event ticket.
