Winner can win $1 million for their business

Two small businesses have reached the finals of an exciting contest to become the official small business of one of the most popular sports in the country.

The 2010 race to become the "Official Small Business of NASCAR" has come down to two finalists, Rose Berger, who owns Professional Cleaning Service in South Carolina and Mike Pagano, owner of PaganoPhoto in New Jersey. The small businesses' logos will be featured on Tony Stewart's No. 14 Office Depot/Old Spice Chevrolet and Greg Biffle's No. 16 3M Ford.

If either Biffle or Stewart come out on top while sporting the logo during the AAA 400 race at Dover International Speedway, then the small business will win $1 million.

"This weekend is going to be pretty exciting because Office Depot and 3M have created an incredible opportunity with this year's 'Official Small Business of NASCAR' sweepstakes," Biffle said. "As a small business owner myself, I want to do a great job for the small business featured on my car and hopefully give them a shot at the $1 million prize."

NASCAR drivers have been making news for small business by giving other entrepreneurs the opportunity to have their businesses logo on cars. MyGearStore, an electronics store in Los Alamitos, California, had its logo featured on the No. 11 FedEx Toyota just last week.
