Sadler gets 'pink' slip on No. 19

The No. 19 Dodge driven by Elliott Sadler and sponsored by Stanley tools in this weekend's Bank of America 500 will be black and pink and that's a special scheme in several ways for Sadler.

The paint scheme is in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Sadler races each week with a pink ribbon decal above the driver's-side door on his car.

"Last year my mother, Bell, was diagnosed with breast cancer, so this is a cause that is very near and dear to my heart," Sadler said. "We are fortunate that she was able to fight and is now on the road to recovery."

Stanley will make a $100,000 donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Sadler's uniform items will be auctioned after the race, with proceeds going to same cause.
