The speed and power of NASCAR and baseball will join again in 2009 in a partnership to raise money and awareness for two major youth charities.

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Clint Bowyer, Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher and 2006 National League Cy Young Award winner Brandon Webb, and Phoenix International Raceway President Bryan R. Sperber have announced plans for the charity event "Offspeed," set to take place at PIR's exclusive luxury lounge, Octane, on Thursday, November 12 at 6 p.m.

"Offspeed" will benefit NASCAR-themed Victory Junction and Brandon Webb's K Foundation, the initiative started by Webb and his wife, Alicia, in 2005 to benefit ill Phoenix-area children.

"'Offspeed' is a great opportunity to raise money for two great charities," Bowyer said. "It's a pleasure partnering in the event with Phoenix International Raceway and Brandon Webb. It's a great night of fun in Octane, and it all goes for great causes."

Said Webb: "We're really excited to be partnering with Clint and PIR. 'Offspeed' is going to be a great event and its proceeds will help thousands of sick children in both Phoenix and Kansas City."

Tickets for the charity event are $250 each, and guests will have the chance to mingle with Bowyer and Webb while enjoying food and drink, an amazing view of the racing action at PIR, and an exclusive charity auction, all while contributing to the future well-being of critically ill children.

Presenting sponsorships for the event are also available, with packages starting at $10,000. Presenting sponsors will receive two tickets each to "Offspeed" and Sunday's Checker O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 Presented by Pennzoil NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, as well as a Sprint Cup Series garage tour - including a guided tour of Bowyer's No. 33 car hauler - and pit and pre-race ceremony access to witness driver introductions. Sponsors will be invited to a meet-and-greet photo opportunity for two (2) with Bowyer and Webb prior to "Offspeed," and will receive two authentic Brandon Webb jerseys.

Presenting sponsorships feature inclusion on all promotional materials, including press releases, electronic collateral, and auction materials.
