NASCAR Fans Can 'Get Their NASCAR Day Pin On' By Visiting Local Bass Pro Shops Now Through May 21

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (April 9, 2010) -- NASCAR fans looking for a way to "get their pin on" can now visit their local Bass Pro Shops to make a $5 donation for the 2010 NASCAR Day collectible lapel pin. The NASCAR Foundation and Bass Pro Shops have announced the popular outdoor retailer will participate in the national fundraiser by carrying the pins now through May 21 at 56 stores nationwide.

NASCAR Day is a charitable celebration of the NASCAR spirit that enables fans and partners to join together to make a difference in the lives of children. NASCAR Day encourages fans to make a $5 donation for a collectible lapel pin which in turn will support programs that help children live happier, healthier lives.

Jamie McMurray, driver of the Earnhardt Ganassi Racing No. 1 Chevrolet, is one of several NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers that appear in the 2010 NASCAR Day commercial, which encourages fans to "get their pin on" to show they are a champion for children. McMurray is a long-time supporter of children's programs through the Jamie McMurray Foundation and other charitable endeavors.

"It's great to be able to participate in a charitable program like this that has a proven record of helping children in need," said McMurray. "I feel lucky to be in a position that enables me to help others and I urge fans to participate in the program by wearing their NASCAR Day pin on May 21st." Bass Pro Shops has become one of America's premier outdoor retailers with 56destination outdoor retail stores across America and Canada, serving over 100 million sportsmen a year. Each store is unique and offers a truly unforgettable shopping experience.
