GO PINK OR GO HOME!
GO PINK OR GO HOME! is the message that will unite NASCAR drivers and fans this weekend in Charlotte, NC, as pink-skinned race cars hit the track at Lowe’s Motor Speedway in honor of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Friday night’s Dollar General 300 will feature three pink ribbon-themed cars. Brian Vickers in the pink #32 Dollar General car, Brian Scott in the pink #10 Dollar General car and Jason Leffler in the pink Great Clips car. Dollar General-sponsored IndyCar driver Sarah Fisher, who raced her own pink car last weekend at Miami-Homestead, will serve as the Grand Marshall for the evening.
Saturday night's NASCAR Banking 500 will feature Komen for the Cure partners and NASCAR drivers including Bobby Labonte in the #96 Ask.com car, Bill Elliott in the #21 Ford/Warriors in Pink car, Kyle Busch in the #18 M&Ms car, Michael Waltrip in the #55 NAPA Auto Parts car, and Elliott Sadler in the #19 Stanley car.
Komen would like to thank our partners and the NASCAR family for embracing our cause in such a visible way. It is with the help of partners like these and supporters like you that we will fulfill the promise our founder made nearly 30 years ago to her dying sister - to save lives and end breast cancer forever.
The NASCAR Banking 500 will be broadcast at 7 p.m. EST on ABC. Be sure to follow all the race action on our Facebook Fan Page and on Twitter!
