This weekend at Dover, and coming up at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, Kansas Speedway in Kansas City and Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, Patrick’s normally green Chevrolet turns pink in honor of breast cancer awareness. It is part of GoDaddy’s annual “Put the Brakes on Breast Cancer” campaign, which runs through the month of October.
While Patrick will wear a pink firesuit to match her pink car, she will also don gloves featuring pink accents at Dover this weekend at Dover. In addition, she will utilize a special pink-accented steering wheel made by Max Papis Innovations in the No. 10 GoDaddy Chevrolet SS this weekend. At the end of October, Patrick’s steering wheel will be autographed and donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation to be auctioned off.
When Patrick gets behind the wheel of her pink GoDaddy Chevrolet this weekend, she’ll be looking to repeat the team’s success at Dover in May. In her sixth Sprint Cup start at the track, Patrick scored a 15th-place finish – her career-best result at the track. The effort came two weeks after she and the No. 10 team spent three days at the high-banked, concrete mile oval taking part in a Goodyear tire test and NASCAR open test session.
With a little pink on her car and what the team learned in May, Patrick is hoping for a good run this weekend – and to help raise awareness for breast cancer.
