DETROIT – (September 10, 2011) – Eighty-five caution laps in Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Wonderful Pistachios 400 at Richmond International Raceway means a donation of $17,000 to the American Cancer Society, courtesy of Chevrolet.
Chevy pledged to make a donation to the American Cancer Society in the amount of $200 for each caution lap that the specially-themed “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” pink Camaro SS pace car leads the field during Saturday night’s race at RIR.
“We are very proud to partner with the American Cancer Society, and carry the ACS logo on the pace car,” said Jeff Chew, Chevy Racing Marketing Manager. “Hopefully, the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” pink Camaro SS helped serve to remind race fans of all of the upcoming events in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and that we all can do our part in helping in the fight against cancer.”
A track record-tying 15 cautions produced the 85 laps.
Chevrolet has donated a total $29,800 to the American Cancer Society in the last two weeks. Chevy also provided a specially-themed pink Camaro SS pace car last week at Atlanta. That race produced 64 caution laps that resulted in a donation of $12,800 from Chevrolet to ACS.
