Said Stewart, “Aside from raising awareness and funds to help families whose children are battling cancer, my favorite thing about this promotion is that one real die-hard Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan will own something that no one else has.” Stewart chose 20-year-old driver Newberry to help him promote the contest because Newberry “personifies talent on the race track, but also integrity, and genuine class outside of racing.”
Beginning April 8, 2010 in Phoenix, Arizona for the K&N Pro Series West Race, Brennan Newberry’s NTS Motorsports Chevrolet will display a replica hood wrap of Earnhardt Jr.’s original Sharpie drawing. Said Bob Newberry, Brennan’s father and owner of NTS Motorsports, “Families, especially the kids, are what make racing special for us.”

About Newell Rubbermaid and Sharpie
Write Out Loud!™ with Sharpie, has been making bold impressions around the world since its debut as the first pen-style permanent marker in 1964. In the 40 years since then, Sharpie has become the popular brand of permanent marker associated with the autograph experience, as it writes on almost any surface from glass, wood and stone, to plastic, metal and, of course, paper. By the end of 2002, more than 200 million Sharpie markers had been produced, enough for approximately two Sharpie markers for every household in America. Sharpie was acquired by Newell Rubbermaid in 1992 as part of Sanford, a leading manufacturer and marketer of writing instruments.
