With this weekend’s race being the “FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks,” FedEx-sponsored driver Denny Hamlin is carrying a special Autism Speaks paint scheme in this weekend’s race. The mostly white design – a major shift from Hamlin’s usual black race cars – features the vibrant light blue puzzle pieces that are a trademark of the organization. Sponsor FedEx has also pledged to donate $100,000 to Autsim Speaks should Hamlin take the car to victory lane Sunday. It is only the latest story in a long line of those about folks within NASCAR offering it’s helping hand to others. Autism Speaks is an organization near and dear to the sport, as the daughter of driver and Speed TV personality Hermie Sadler and the niece of 2010 Daytona 500 champion Jamie McMurray both have the disorder.â†µ
