Involved in the NYC, Wash DC and PA Terrorist Attacks

Ken Schrader
#36: Electing to make a bold statement...but with no words, "M&M's"® Chocolate Candies this weekend at Dover has removed its familiar logo, "M" Characters and candy pieces from the No. 36 Pontiac replacing them instead with an American Flag. All associate sponsors of the #36 (Pontiac, Valvoline, Mighty Auto Parts and Call-N-Carry) elected to join forces and remove their decals as well. The flag -- which waves front to back on the car -- is accompanied only by the number 36. In addition to the American Flag paint scheme, the phone number for the American Red Cross (1-800-Give Now) is also located on the television panel to gain awareness for the relief efforts of the American Red Cross. Additionally, the "M&M's"® Racing Team will make a donation to the American Red Cross disaster relief fund.
Amoco and the #93
.In keeping with industry-wide support for victims of last week’s attacks in New York and Washington, D.C. and to those engaged in the support efforts, the #93 Amoco-Siemens team will feature special design elements for this weekend’s NASCAR Winston Cup Series race at Dover Downs (DL) International Speedway. Replacing the Amoco Ultimate branding on the hood of the #93 entry, the logo of the American Red Cross will appear exclusively along with contact information (1-800-HELP-NOW……1-800-435-7669) for the organization, which is primary to the on-going relief efforts following terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, D.C. on September 11. In addition, the official shield of the Fire Department of New York will replace the deck-lid signage on the #93 Dodge occupied weekly by Siemens, the team’s major associate sponsor, which joined Amoco in waiving their space on the #93
Michael Waltrip
NASCAR Winston Cup driver Michael Waltrip's No. 15 NAPA Chevrolet will display a Stars and Stripes paint scheme in the MBNA Cal Ripken, Jr. 400 at Dover Downs this weekend, as well as the remaining races in 2001. Waltrip ran the same model at the Pepsi 400 in July in honor of Independence Day. "In memory of those who lost their lives, in honor of those who have been called together to defend our Nation, in appreciation for those who work day and night participating in recovery efforts and in respect and trust in those who represent the United States of America, the NAPA AUTO PARTS Chevrolet will carry the symbolic stars and stripes of our country," said NAPA President, Steve Handschuh. "This car was special when we ran it the first time at Daytona," reflected Waltrip. "We were able to honor all those who fought and died for our freedom before us and show that we are proud to be American. By sporting the Stars and Stripes we hope to remind everyone that we live in the greatest country in the world and that is why the United States was attacked on September 11. Our prayers are lifted for all those who lost loved ones in this tragic event."
Jimmy Spencer
When United Airlines flight 93 crashed September 11, 2001 in a strip mine in Shanksville, PA, Jimmy Spencer was devastated not only because the crash scene was near where Spencer grew-up in Pennsylvania, but of an heroic feat that was felt around the world. As Spencer was driving back home to North Carolina after being stranded at the Houston airport the day America was attacked, Spencer learned about how the passengers of Flight 93 overcame three hijackers and saved the life's of thousands of people in our nation's capitol. Spencer was deeply touched by the actions of the passengers who put their life's on the line to prevent another major devastation. "Obviously, I'm very sad and angry about what happened last week", said Spencer. "I know President Bush and our military are going to find the faceless cowards that did this, and I am so proud of what Americans and other countries are doing to help the families of all the victims." Spencer said, "I want to focus on these forty-five families and try to help them financially. I am going to field my #5 Busch Series Chevrolet at the NASCAR race in Charlotte on October 6. This car will be a memorial to the forty-five passengers of Flight 93 and will proudly display the emblem of "The Presidential Medal of Freedom", America's highest civilian award. I am asking the NASCAR community and fans for their support and to generate as much money as we can for the families of Flight 93 and all the victims of September 11. This is my way to help the families and to pay homage and to give these forty-five American heroes a memorial shrine inside the NASCAR arena. Please send financial donations to: Spencer Motor Ventures, 160 Gasoline Alley, Mooresville, NC 28117, or donate online at www.jimmyspencer.net.
