In support of the American Cancer Society® and breast cancer awareness, Chevrolet, together with partner Atlanta Motor Speedway, is holding a special event to give breast cancer survivors the thrill of a ride around the track in specially-themed pink pace cars with Team Chevy NASCAR drivers.
The event will be held on August 31, 2012 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Thirty survivors and a guest of their choice have been invited to the track to receive pace car rides in the morning from Team Chevy drivers Jamie McMurray and Ron Hornaday, Jr. followed by a garage tour. Danica Patrick will then visit the group later for photos and autographs. The event will conclude with a lunch provided by NASCAR.
The pink Chevrolet Camaros will feature the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer® logo, which is the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer awareness platform. The Atlanta Making Strides event, which is a 5K walk, will take place October 6, 2012 in Centennial Olympic Park.
On Sunday, September 2 during the AdvoCare 500, the pink Chevrolet Camaros will take to the track with each caution lap representing a contribution to the American Cancer Society in the amount of $200. During the 2011 event, 64 caution laps were posted, providing a $12,800 contribution to ACS.
Along with its dealers, Chevrolet is proud to support the American Cancer Society® in raising awareness of breast cancer and its mission to save more lives by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back against this disease.
