BROOKLYN, Mich. -- Because NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series driver Tony Stewart is used to driving at high speeds in access of 180 mph at Michigan International Speedway every summer the nine-year series veteran was cool under pressure when he handled bank teller responsibilities at the Citizens Bank branch in Brooklyn on Wednesday, May 2.

"This was a lot of fun," Stewart said. "Having Citizens Bank serve as the sponsor of this year's June race at MIS is fitting because they were the first bank to ever give General Motors a loan to start their company. Without them I wouldn't even have a job and be able to race here every summer."

Stewart, the 2002 and 2005 series champion and former MIS race winner, took on the role of a bank teller from Noon to 1 p.m. at the Citizens Bank in Brooklyn on Wednesday. The media event provided advanced publicity for the upcoming NEXTEL Cup Citizens Bank 400 at MIS on Sunday, June 17.

Stewart conducted a meet and greet with Citizens Bank customers who did their banking on that day. In addition, Stewart visited MIS and witnessed first hand the new turn one grandstands, which are nearing completion.

"We are excited to have Tony here visiting with us," track President Roger Curtis said. "Citizens Bank is doing a fantastic job of being a first-time sponsor of a NASCAR NEXTEL Cup event. Since they are the largest bank headquartered in Michigan it's only fitting that they are paired with the largest sporting venue in the state of Michigan."

The new grandstands are more fan-friendly and will offer race fans premium seating and amazing sightlines of the two-mile oval. Seats in the new grandstands are four inches wider than the seats in the old grandstands, and will allow fans to have more leg room. In addition, all of the new seats are bench-style with seat backs. The new grandstands are also higher than the old grandstands so fans who sit there will have breathtaking views of all the on-track action at MIS — including a fantastic view down pit road.

Tickets for all MIS races, including the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Citizens Bank 400 on June 17 and the 3M Performance 400 on August 19, are on sale by calling the MIS Ticket Hotline at 1-800-354-1010 or by visiting www.MISpeedway.com.
