Opening Bid Already In at $2,000


EMPORIA, VA (April 27, 2007) – While most people celebrate their birthday with cake and ice cream, Elliott Sadler will honor his 32nd birthday on Monday, April 30 with a more memorable event – an online auction for Sadler’s special Autism Awareness paint scheme helmet to raise funds for autism research and treatment.

In an effort to promote Autism Awareness Month, Sadler has been wearing a special autism awareness helmet at the races at Texas Motor Speedway, Phoenix International Raceway and will sport it again this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway.


The online auction will begin on Monday, April 30, at 8 a.m. ET and run through Monday, May 7th at 1 p.m. To bid on Sadler’s autism awareness helmet, fans can visit anytime between now and May 7th. The winning bidder will receive a Certificate of Authenticity from Elliott Sadler on Elliott Sadler Enterprises letterhead.

All proceeds from the online auction will benefit the Hermie and Elliott Sadler Charitable Foundation.

The helmet, which was donated by Impact Racing, sports the multi-colored puzzle piece logo of the Autism Society. The complex design was painted by Ryan Young of Indocil Art, who handles the majority of helmet paintings for Evernham Motorsports.

“Helping to create awareness for autism is an extremely important cause for me,” Sadler said. “It hits really close to home because my niece Halie is autistic. The Autism Society of America offers many different programs and opportunities to help not only those suffering from this developmental disability but also their families. It is a cause that I’ll do all I can to help out.

“We’re not just trying to raise money for the Hermie and Elliott Sadler Charitable Foundation but we’re looking to educate people and raise more awareness about autism.”
