Charlotte, NC (May 8, 2003) -- ST Motorsports (No. 59 Kingsford Charcoal Chevrolet in the NASCAR Busch Series) has announced they are joining forces with the Animal Adoption League, a non-profit group that rescues and places homeless and abused animals into permanent homes, to host the Seventh Annual Race for Animals Auction at 3pm on Friday, May 23, 2003. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Animal Adoption League's efforts in Charlotte, NC and surrounding areas. There are an estimated 2,000 -- 3,000 homeless animals each month in the Charlotte area and the Animal Adoption League assists as many as possible.

The 2003 Race for Animals Auction will be held at the Turn Two Hospitality Village at Lowe's Motor Speedway, with the preview starting at 2pm and the bidding kicking off at 3pm. The items being auctioned will include an exciting assortment of NASCAR memorabilia and collectibles including:

* NASCAR items from popular teams such as DEI, RCR, Penske, Bill Davis Racing, Robert Yates Racing, JG Racing and much more.

The Animal Adoption League places 300+ abandoned or unwanted animals into permanent, loving homes each year. The organization also provides low-cost veterinary care, free and reduced fee spay/neuter programs to the community and helps educate the public on the importance of reducing pet overpopulation.

Title sponsors include: Fresh Step® cat litter, Food Lion®, AMC Auctions, Lowes Motor Speedway and The Animality.
