NASCAR, Whelen To Present Commemorative Watches In 2009; Series And Race Winners To Receive Tissot Watches

THOMPSON, Conn. (April 5, 2009) -- To commemorate the Silver Anniversary season of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, NASCAR and sponsor Whelen Engineering will present a commemorative Tissot wrist watch to each of the 14 race winners and the season champion in 2009.

Unveiled during the drivers meeting prior to Sunday's season-opening event at Thompson (Conn.) International Speedway, the silver watches feature the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour 25th anniversary logo etched into the back -- along with the race date -- to commemorate the tour's Silver Anniversary season.

"The 25th anniversary is a very special season, and to make it even more special for the winner in each of the 14 events, they will be receiving a Tissot watch, which will be a lasting memory of the victory in this very special year," said Phil Kurze, Whelen Vice President for Motorsports.
