Like a lot of companies, The Home Depot gives out service award to employees who have been around for 10 years.
Tony Stewart, who drives the No. 20 Toyotas sponsored by The Home Depot, will be driving his award this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The special paint scheme features the service award and an orange apron like the one store associates wear.
The paint scheme was designed by Scott Foreman, who works at a Home Depot store in Brighton, Colo., as part of a contest among the company's workers.
Foreman’s design was selected from among more than 350 entries.
“It’s a dream of a lifetime for me,” said Foreman, 57, who will be at the track this weekend as a guest of the team.
“I’ve been a race fan my entire life. I actually grew up around the local tracks in Denver since both my dad and uncle raced when I was young.
“I’ve been a NASCAR fan ever since they began televising races back in the black-and-white TV days. Naturally, I’ve been drawing race cars since I was a kid, too.
"So this prize means more to me than you could ever imagine.”
