Thank you to Peter and
Elizabeth for their support!! They were the winning bidders of
the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard Experience. It was a pleasure
meeting them over the weekend and the Sadler Foundation truly
appreciates their donation.
and Elizabeth arrived at 9:30 a.m. at Elliott’s personal
motorcoach where they received a goody package of t-shirts,
diecasts, team shirts and other #19 merchandise. They had the
opportunity to meet with Elliott for over half an hour and ask
all their burning questions. These fans didn’t miss a beat and
wanted to know what was going on at Evernham Motorsports.
Elliott candidly spoke of the progress the team has made and his
future in racing. After
the private Meet and Greet, they were escorted over to the #19
hauler where they were given a tour by Miko the hauler driver.
They had a look at this moving garage and all of its components
and were given an insiders view of the technical side of it all.
A special thanks to
Allstate for making this prize package even more memorable! They
not only donated the tickets, but they also included two
hospitality passes to the Allstate Pavillion. It was a definite
bonus for the winners to have a place to grab a bite to eat in
some air-conditioning before the race began.

Foundation. We got to see a side of NASCAR that was both overwhelming and
exciting. Watching practice from the garage area; seeing how serious all the
drivers are without their "TV faces" on; how hard the team members work, and how
much each of them care adds an insight and understanding that helps us see just
how hard it is to get the cars "right."
We especially want to thank Elliott for welcoming Elizabeth and I into his RV,
and having coffee with Brett, you and Elliott on the bus. It was especially
thoughtful of him. A special thanks to Miko for showing us his home, Elliott's
hauler. The pit crew guys treated us like part of them, and it was really
Watching the race from Elliott's pit left us both with the feeling, "do we have
to leave, even if the race is over?"
I know the donation is for a great cause, but we think we got the best end of
Thanks so much, Peter
