DARLINGTON, S.C., May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As Pee Dee prepares for the upcoming Bojangles Southern 500, select Walmart stores will offer authentic NASCAR merchandise and host exclusive fan events starting May 9. Customers are invited to attend events, including show car displays, and racing simulators - perfect to safely get behind the wheel and feel the power of NASCAR - on May 9 - 11 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., depending on the store location. Customers can also enjoy a special scheduled appearance by Diet Mountain Dew driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.

"Walmart is the champion of the racing fan, and we are committed to providing customers with savings on authentic merchandise, as well as unique race time experiences," said Walmart market manager Geno Bell.

Legends of Racing
In celebration of its 50th anniversary, Walmart is sponsoring racing legend Bill Elliott driving Walmart No. 50 at the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona on July 7. Bill Elliott and the Walmart No. 50 show car will also make appearances at select Walmart stores nationwide leading up to the race. Trent Owens will serve as crew chief of the No. 50 Walmart Chevrolet. Owens currently calls the shots for Turner Motorsports' No. 30 NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) entry and recently led the team to victory in the 2012 season-opener at Daytona International Speedway.

Through the Legends of Racing online engagement, fans have the opportunity to share their memories and voice their opinions about the top moments in NASCAR history, as well as vote on Bill Elliott's uniform and helmet design.

Fans can vote online at Walmart.com/NASCAR March 28 - May 14.
