Contribution is Result of Chevy Pledge to Donate $200 to American Cancer Society for Each Lap
Specially Themed Camaro Pace Car Led Field Under Caution at Atlanta
DETROIT – (September 4, 2012) – Thirty-one caution laps in Sunday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Advocare 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway netted a donation of $6,200 to the American Cancer Society on behalf of Chevrolet.
Chevy pledged to make a donation to the American Cancer Society in the amount of $200 for every caution lap that the specially themed ‘Making Strides Against Breast Cancer’ pink Camaro SS paced the field during Sunday night’s race at AMS.
“We are very proud to partner with the American Cancer Society, and carry the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer logo on the pace car,” said Jeff Chew, Chevy Racing Marketing Manager. “Hopefully, the pink Camaro SS helps to remind race fans of all of the upcoming events in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We all can do our part in helping in the fight against cancer.”
Six caution flags produced the 31 laps during the 327-lap event on September 2, 2012.
Along with its dealers, Chevrolet is supporting the American Cancer Society’s efforts to save lives by helping people stay well, helping people get well, and by finding cures and fighting back against breast cancer.
