NASCAR, The Home Depot team up

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Nov. 2, 1998) NASCAR and The Home Depot today announced a marketing partnership that designates the world's largest home improvement retailer The Official Home Improvement Warehouse of NASCAR. The NASCAR partnership follows last month's announcement that The Home Depot and Joe Gibbs Racing signed a multi-year sponsorship agreement for the No. 20 Pontiac beginning with the 1999 Daytona 500. "We look forward to a great partnership with The Home Depot and the exposure that Home Depot can give NASCAR through its more than 700 stores," said George Pyne, vice president of marketing for NASCAR. "The combination of NASCAR with The Home Depot, one of the top retailers in the world, is a win-win-win for our sport, The Home Depot and our fans. "This comprehensive alliance is another example of the type of marketing agreements that NASCAR's New York office continues to execute that benefit the sport's drivers, teams and tracks." As part of a comprehensive, multi-year agreement, The Home Depot will combine its NASCAR and Joe Gibbs Racing relationships to create marketing activities at its more than 700 retail stores and NASCAR-themed television commercials that will run nationally. The Home Depot also will support additional NASCAR marketing and media platforms. "Our partnership with NASCAR complements our decision to go racing for the first time in our 20-year history," said Dick Sullivan, The Home Depot's senior vice president of advertising. "As a result, our customers will be seeing The Home Depot car on display at many of our stores, and the NASCAR logo and racing themes will appear in our advertising."
