Elliott Sadler and Stanley Racing Auction Race Used

Pink Driver Suit and Wheels to Benefit

Susan G. Komen for the Cure®

 

 

STATESVILLE, N.C. (Oct. 11, 2008) – Elliott Sadler and Stanley Tools are adding an element to their support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Susan G. Komen for the Cure following this weekend’s Bank of America 500.

 

Sadler, who is running a pink paint scheme and wearing a pink firesuit for this weekend’s Bank of America 500 in Charlotte, is placing two auction packages on www.SadlerFoundation.org to raise additional funds for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

 

“Most race fans know supporting breast cancer awareness is very important to me and my family,” said Sadler. “Last year my mother, Bell, was diagnosed with breast cancer and so far she's been able to beat it. The folks at Susan G. Komen reached out to us exactly one year ago so for us to be able to run this special paint scheme and offer race fans one of a kind memorabilia supporting breast cancer awareness month is a great way to give back. Stanley really stepped up to make this program a success and when this weekend is over race fans will have a chance to own the pink wheels from our No. 19 car and the pink firesuit I'm wearing this weekend at Charlotte.”

 

One of the auctions will contain one full set of pink wheels, each autographed by Sadler. The wheels will be on the car for pre-race and through the first pit stop of the Bank of America 500. An autographed 8 inch by 10 inch photograph of the pink No. 19 Stanley Dodge on the race track and a certificate of authenticity from Gillett Evernham Motorsport are included in the package.

 

The second auction package contains the autographed race worn pink firesuit, pink Puma shoes and a pink Stanley pit cap.

 

The auctions will kickoff at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 11, 2008 shortly before the actual running of the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte. The auctions will conclude at 8 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 19.

 

In addition to Stanley Tools original $100,000 donation, they have agreed to match the totals from each auction package to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure. All proceeds from the auctions will benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

 

“Elliott and Stanley Tools are both extremely proud to be supporting breast cancer awareness and Susan G. Komen for the Cure,” said Rebecca Durham, Motorsports & Sponsorships Manager of Stanley Tools. “All of the items that are up for auction are unique one-of-a-kind items that would be a highlight of any fans race collection, but the best part is that all of the money raised is going straight to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.”

 

The pink Stanley logo that appears on the No. 19 Dodge and on Sadler’s firesuit marks the first time in the company’s 165 year history that its logo will change to a color other than Stanley Yellow.
