Ryan Newman's Pit Road Pets crew to photograph fans with their pets in Charlotte for second edition of charity book

STATESVILLE, NC (May 4, 2009) - NASCAR's pet loving fans will have an opportunity to join their favorite drivers in the upcoming book Pit Road Pets: NASCAR Stars and Their Pets, the Second Lap.  The Pit Road Pets crew will be photographing fans with their pets during the Charlotte race weekend in May.   

Following the success of the Ryan Newman Foundation's first charity book, Pit Road Pets: NASCAR Stars and Their Pets, the foundation will be producing a second edition that will not only feature NASCAR's biggest stars with their furry family members, but also NASCAR's biggest fans with their own pets.  One hundred percent of the net proceeds will be donated to humane efforts nationwide.   

Photographer Karen Will Rogers will be taking pictures of NASCAR fans with their pets at the Pit Road Pets tent on the Little's property directly across from the main entrance to Lowe's Motor Speedway (in the middle of the big top merchandise vendors and to the left of the official merchandise trailers) from Noon to 5 PM on Saturday, May 23 and from Noon to 4 PM on Sunday, May 24.  Fans are encouraged to stop by the booth with their pets to have their family photos taken.    

The first edition of the Pit Road Pets book will be on sale at the Pit Road Pets booth from Noon to 4 PM on Friday, May 22 for a special discounted price of $18, which is a savings of $7.  Everyone who purchases a book at the tent will receive a complimentary Pit Road Pets tee-shirt. Books can also be purchased at Newman's trackside merchandise trailer or ordered online at www.ryannewman.org
