CINCINNATI, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Fifth Third Bank and Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., driver of the No. 6 Fifth Third Ford Fusion for Roush Fenway Racing, will be lending their support to Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) by featuring the SU2C logo on Stenhouse's Ford during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series finale of 2012 held at the Homestead-Miami Speedway on November 18, 2012.

"Every year cancer claims the lives of more than 560,000 Americans and almost eight million people worldwide. Fifth Third Bank is proud to be able to help raise awareness for Stand Up To Cancer and assist in achieving its goal of ending cancer's reign as the leading cause of death," said Greg Carmichael, president and COO of Fifth Third Bancorp.

The race will be broadcast on ESPN beginning at 2pm EST on Sunday, November 18 th and is anticipated to garner a large viewing audience since it will determine the 2012 champion of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

"Most every family in America has been touched in some way by cancer, including my own," said Stenhouse, driver of the Fifth Third Ford Fusion and also the current points leader for the 2012 NASCAR Nationwide Series Championship. "I am honored to have the opportunity to support Stand Up To Cancer and help raise awareness for the movement.  NASCAR fans are not only loyal, but generous as well. I encourage all the race fans out there to visit SU2C.org online this weekend and consider making a donation to help in the fight to end cancer."

"Stand Up To Cancer is a populist movement, founded on the idea that each and every one of us can play a role in this fight. We're so grateful to Fifth Third Bank and Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. for giving us this unique platform to get that message out to the public," said Rusty Robertson, Stand Up To Cancer co-founder.
