DOVER, Del. - When the Robert Yates Racing teams return to the track this weekend for the MBNA Cal Ripkin, Jr. 400 NASCAR Winston Cup Series race at Dover Downs International Speedway, they will be sporting a patriotic look honoring America in response to the recent tragedies in New York, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania.

With the teams turning their attention to the 2001 Winston Cup Series championship, both the No. 28 Texaco/Havoline Ford and the No. 88 UPS Taurus will have the American flag prominently displayed on the front hood of each car.

"The tragedy our country faced was terrible," said Robert Yates. "Our sponsors have given up their space so we could put American flags prominently on our cars. We are a strong nation and I'm confident we will overcome these tragedies. I'm happy to be able to provide a visible way for us to show our pride in our country."

Also, Ricky Rudd, Texaco/Havoline and Robert Yates Racing will each contribute $10 per lap completed in Sunday's 400-lap race to The Disaster Relief Fund for The American Red Cross, which will help the victims and families affected by the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.
