Something good might actually come out of a wreck during two forthcoming NASCAR races thanks to GM’s partnership with the American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” initiative. During two upcoming NASCAR Sprint Cup Races this bright pink Breast Cancer Awareness themed Camaro SS will serve as pace car, and for every caution lap that the Camaro leads the pack around the track, Chevy will donate $200 to the American Cancer Society to help with the fight against cancer.
The Breast Cancer Awareness Camaro Pace Car was all set to make its debut at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sunday for the AdvoCare 500, but the race was rescheduled for Tuesday, September 6th, due to heavy rain from Tropical Storm Lee. The pink pace car will get a second shot to raise some coin for American Cancer Society at Richmond International Raceway on September 10th, when it paces the Wonderful Pistachios 400.
It’s likely that the pink pace car will be getting a lot more press time off the track, as Chevy tells us that they have several other “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” events planned with the American Cancer Society leading up to Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. Alan Batey, Vice President of Chevrolet says, “Together with our race fans, Chevrolet wants to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer, more birthdays and longer journeys.”
