CONCORD, N.C. -- The Drive for the Cure 250 is sure to bring out the fun and competitive side of racing as NASCAR Xfinity Series championship contenders face off at the Charlotte Roval on Oct. 10.
However, the event won't just highlight the Xfinity Series stars. For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina has partnered with the Drive for the Cure 250.
The race will have a bright pink pace car signed by breast cancer survivors, advocates and family members who have lost loved ones lead the drivers during warmups.
Those who send their signature off to be added to the pace car for the event will be entered into a raffle to win a pair of signed gloves by seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson.
Fans can send their signature or image electronically by clicking here. They automatically are entered into the raffle and their names and images will be all over the pace car when it hits the course. Participants have until Sept. 20 to submit the names and images.
Blue Cross Blue Shield has partnered with Susan G. Komen to help bring awareness on getting routine checkups to fight early detection of breast cancer, along with providing hope, support, and resources to patients. According to the organization, one in eight women in North Carolina will fight breast cancer in her lifetime.
The Drive for a Cure 250 will be Saturday, Oct. 10 at 3:30 p.m. ET on NBC. Tickets for the event can be purchased here.
