NASCAR “went pink” last weekend to help raise awareness for breast cancer. Race cars and trucks displayed a NASCAR Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon. In addition, all NASCAR officials wore pink lanyards and gloves and all fire suits displayed NASCAR Breast Cancer Awareness patches. NASCAR partner, Mechanix Wear, provided pink gloves that will later be signed by drivers to be auctioned on NASCAR Unites.
“Breast Cancer Awareness month is one of those unique opportunities in which the NASCAR industry and NASCAR fans rally together for such a special and important cause,” said Sandy Marshall, executive director of the NASCAR Foundation. “Each year the program gets bigger, which means that awareness is growing across the board.”
Friday night’s Nationwide series race featured a “pink out” as fans were encouraged to wear pink in honor of supporting the event.
