From the Paper:

"Home Depot is an event marketer in that it sponsors The Home Depot Racing Team for NASCAR Racing, which sports the Home Depot logo on a race car, and this advertising is seen on stations across the globe. Home Depot sells NASCAR merchandise such as the #3 Dale Earnhardt Pedal Car and the NASCAR Total Team Control X-Box. Home Depot builds relationships with NASCAR fans in this manner and since its partnership with Joe Gibbs Racing and KaBoom, it is now reaching children (their parents, really) due to HD's role in the Racing to Play playgrounds constructed with at-risk children in mind, a non-profit venture with 10 playgrounds completed and 10 more in the process of being built by over 2,000 volunteers (, 2006)."
