NEW YORK — The Speed Stick Gear team and NASCAR driver Cole Whitt have announced a new online sweepstakes aimed at rewarding those who step up in high-pressure situations with a chance to join Whitt during NASCAR's final race in Miami on Nov. 16.
To participate in the Speed Stick #GearUp Sweepstakes, follow @SpeedStick on Twitter and tweet a picture, including the hashtag #GearUpSweepsEntry, showcasing how you step up in high-pressure moments — whether training for a marathon or suiting up for a big meeting at the office.
One winner will be selected at random each day through Oct. 28 to receive a $100 gift card courtesy of Speed Stick.

"In today's socially connected culture, high-pressure moments are more visible than ever," said Bill Van De Graaf, VP and GM, U.S. personal care, Colgate-Palmolive. "All season long, fans have been watching Cole Whitt suit up and step up against the best drivers on the track. Through this new #GearUp sweepstakes, we are celebrating Cole's incredible will to tackle challenges head-on by asking his fans to do the same."
