NASCAR drivers responding to attacks with paint schemes, pledges


(Charlotte, North Carolina-AP) -- The NASCAR community is pledging its help to the victims of last week's terrorist attacks through a variety of paint schemes and charitable donations.

A combined 37 Winston Cup and Busch series drivers have told NASCAR of special patriotic paint schemes they will have on their cars this weekend at Dover Downs International Speedway.

The schemes will range from the Stars and Stripes on Michael Waltrip's car to an American flag on the decklid of Dale Earnhardt Junior's.

Twelve drivers have joined Rusty Wallace and Jeremy Mayfield's call to donate up to 25 dollars for every lap they complete this weekend.

And Busch Series driver Ashton Lewis said he will donate half of his winnings this weekend to the Salvation Army.
