CONCORD, N.C. - Chevrolet is parting with the American Cancer Society (ACS) with its "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" initiative for the 12th consecutive season.
A special pink Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE will serve as the official pace car for three NASCAR Cup Series races in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The pink Chevrolet Camaro pace car, which carries the logo of ACS, will be used starting this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday, Oct. 2. The pink pace car will return for the Round of 8 playoff races at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Oct. 23 and Martinsville Speedway on Oct. 30
For every lap run under caution in those select races, Chevrolet will donate $350 to the American Cancer Society to honor "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer." In 2021, caution laps generated among the three participating races hit the threshold, generating a $50,000 donation towards the American Cancer Society.
“We are honored to represent the American Cancer Society on our pink Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE pace car during the month of October,” Todd Christensen, Senior Manager, Chevrolet Motorsports Strategic Marketing and Operations, said in a Chevrolet release. “As a proud partner of ACS, we are grateful to continue our support for the cause and look forward to bringing awareness of the initiative back to the track.”
