Sadler Unites with Fellow NEXTEL Cup Competitors to Aid Virginia Tech Victims


RICHMOND, Va. (May 5, 2007) – To honor the victims of the Virginia Tech tragedy and help support those who continue to heal and grieve, NASCAR NEXTEL Cup drivers and Virginia-natives Elliott Sadler, Denny Hamlin and Jeff Burton have made a substantial donation to the “Hokie Spirit Memorial Fund”.

The Memorial Fund will provide assistance to families for a variety of needs associated with their loss, including grief counseling, memorials (student scholarship), communication expenses and comfort expenses. It will also assist those grieving among friends and family, as well as other survivors who were in the Norris Hall classrooms.


“Virginians take care of their own,” commented Sadler. “After what happened at Virginia Tech, some of the Virginia natives in the Nextel Cup garage, including myself, Jeff Burton and Denny Hamlin wanted to do something for the school and the families that were affected.”

Sadler, Hamlin and Burton presented a check in the amount of $120,000 to Virginia Tech football coach Frank Beamer, prior to Saturday’s driver intros at Richmond International Raceway.


“I've been very proud of the students, the faculty and the Virginia Tech family who have shown their unity as far as fighting through this and getting through this because it's been a tough situation for a lot of people,” Sadler said.
