Albany -- The Procter and Gamble Paper plant in Albany is now making a new product line, and they brought in a racing superstar who is going to show it off.  

Kevin Harvick will be driving the number 33 Bounty Super Duty race car next year on the Busch Series. He came with his race car to the plant Thursday, to meet with the workers and celebrate the new product.

Super Duty is a shop towel quality paper product that is being made at the Albany P&G plant. They will manufacture 200,000 cases of Bounty Super Duty in the next year. The expansion does not mean any new jobs yet, but if the product demand increases, it could mean future expansion.

Kevin Harvick said his race team has been using the shop towels, and love them. "It's really neat to come to one of your sponsors, and see the people that are excited to see you from the plant. Come out and spend some time with them," Harvick said.      

NASCAR's Harvick will debut the new Bounty Super Duty car at Bristol Virginia. You can start buying them in February.
