Scott Brand Towels and Cottonelle Brand Bath Tissue "Roll" into Canada with NASCAR Busch Series Debut 2Product "re-introduction", team sponsorship create excitement surrounding historic event
Neenah, Wis. (July 26, 2007) -- When NASCAR travels to Montreal, Quebec, Canada and the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in August, Kimberly-Clark Corporation (NYSE: KMB) and Brewco Motorsports will also make a grand introduction. Scott brand towels and Cottonelle brand bath tissue will "re-introduce" themselves to the Canadian market.
These two respected brands from Kimberly-Clark, home to other well-known brands including Kleenex, Huggies, Pull-Ups, Kotex, Poise and Depend, can now be found back on the shelves at leading retailers in Canada. The Cottonelle and Scott brands will also be featured as co-sponsors on the No. 27 Ford Fusion Brewco Motorsports car for the NAPA Auto Parts 200 Presented by Dodge.
"We are very excited to be bringing these trusted and highly recognized brands back to the Canadian marketplace," said Claude Dupuis, Kimberly-Clark Sales Director. "In doing so, we are able to help our retail partners in Canada provide even more choice for customers.
"And, what could be a more exciting way to spread the word than by participating as an official car sponsor for NASCAR's first-ever Canadian race," he said. "K-C has a long history of proud service throughout Canada. To have the Scott and Cottonelle brands be a part of this historic event in Montreal is truly an honor."
The NAPA Auto Parts 200 Presented by Dodge will be the first-ever visit of the NASCAR Busch Series in Canada, and the first time Brewco Motorsports has raced north of the U.S. border.
Jorge Goeters will drive the No. 27 Scott/Cottonelle brands Ford Fusion. Goeters and Brewco are a combination already in the NASCAR Busch Series record book, as he drove the Brewco car in the Busch Series races at Mexico City for the past three seasons, winning the pole for the inaugural event in March, 2005. Goeters qualified fourth and finished seventh in the No. 27 Ford Fusion in the 2007 Mexico Telemex 200.
"It's a thrill to drive for Kimberly-Clark and Brewco Motorsports at Montreal," Goeters stated. "To represent the Scott and Cottonelle brands and their return to Canada is an exciting opportunity. I have enjoyed success driving for Brewco in Mexico City, and look forward to a very competitive race on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. I'd love to win my first NASCAR Busch Series race for Kimberly-Clark and Brewco Motorsports at this historic event."
Practice will begin for the Busch Series teams on Friday, August 3rd with qualifying set for 12:10 p.m. on Saturday, August 4th. The 74-lap, 200.54-mile NAPA Auto Parts 200 Presented by Dodge will start at 3:30 p.m. on the 2.710 mile circuit. ESPN2 will provide live television coverage of the event.
