Everybody knows that everything is bigger and bolder in Texas, so who better to host an appearance than larger-than-life personality Tony Stewart?

The driver of the No. 14 Office Depot/Old Spice Chevrolet will roll into Grapevine, Texas at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, April 14 to sign autographs for fans at the local Office Depot.

Want a chance to meet him and help celebrate his 400th career start in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series? Here's how!

Where: Office Depot, 1317 State Highway 114 West, Grapevine, TX, 76051

When: Wednesday, April 14, 2010, 4 pm local time

Why: Because you want to meet your favorite driver, that's why!

The No. 14 Office Depot will be on site for photo-ops and fans can try their hand at being Stewart for a day by taking a simulated spin around the track in the No. 14 race car simulator.

Please note that while this event will be open to the general public, only 700 wristbands will be distributed for autographs (one per person).

The wristbands may be obtained on a first-come, first-serve basis at the store beginning at 8:00 am local time.

Fans with a wristband must be in line no later than 5:00 pm to receive an autograph.

Saddle up early folks and get on down to the Office Depot before the stampede and wrangle yourself a visit with a real modern day cowboy.

This is a one day opportunity, so giddy up y'all and strike while the iron is hot.

Don't let Tony Stewart drive off into the sunset without showing him some genuine Texas hospitality!
