The following is a guest post by Philip and Karen Williams
My wife and I are sitting here watching the Atlanta race and having a discussion about NASCAR’s role in Stand Up To Cancer. We thought it would be a good idea, if it is not already possible, to have a way that fans could donate to Stand Up to Cancer.
We don’t know if NASCAR would allow it but one way to do it would be to have donation stations around the race track where fans could donate as much or as little as they could freely. We live in Starkville, MS and have been to Talledega many times and have never seen anything like a donation station when entering or exiting the track so don’t know if anything like this is possible.
Another way would be to put a line on the tickets where fans could donate a sum of money when purchasing their tickets. If every person that bought tickets donated $1 per ticket, millions of dollars could be raised for a great cause. NASCAR could even have a NASCAR Stand Up to Cancer Pin that could be purchased.
I know that times are hard and money is tight but most folks will donate what they can when given the opportunity.
We appreciate your time.

Dale Jr Swears it was an Accident
Jimmie Johnson might have won the Chevy Rock and Roll 400 Sunday, but it was once again Dale Earnhardt Jr and Kyle Busch grabbing headlines amid controversy.
“If I wanted to do it, I would do it really, really good.” ~ Dale Jr on the Kyle Busch crash
It looked like the same wreck the 2 drivers were involved in the last time they came to Richmond – but this time it was Kyle Busch who hit the wall, not Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Busch and Earnhardt were locked in a heated battle for the lead midway through the race when the 2 cars touched sending Kyle’s Toyota into the wall.
Junior insisted the crash was accidental — but he seemed to leave plenty of room to read between the lines in his comments.
When asked if he had intentionally put Busch into the wall, Dale Earnhardt Jr said “I really ain’t never wrecked anybody on purpose. But if I wanted to do it, I would do it really, really good.”
“If I wreck somebody, I ain’t going to leave him in good enough shape to come back and get me in the same race, so that wasn’t really my intentions.”
Kyle Busch felt that he knew exactly what happened. “Junior got in there a little too hot, a little close to me , and smoked the tires,” said Busch, who left the Richmond with the points lead.
One reporter asked Busch if he thought the wreck was payback from the spring race at Richmond.
“Was that revenge?Â Who knows?” Busch replied flatly.
Dale Earnhardt Jr finished the race 4th — while Busch was credited with a 15th place finish.
Do you think it was revenge?
