Twitter

Danica Patrick is trading in her traditional Go Daddy green for a whole new look this month.

Joining in the cause for breast cancer awareness in October, Patrick is going to donning pink to help raise awareness throughout the upcoming race weekends. As a kickoff to breast cancer awareness, Patrick unveiled a special pink paint scheme for the No. 10 car in New York City.

Along with Chevrolet, Patrick also helped unveil another car dedicated to the cause, a pink Chevrolet Camaro SS pace car that will be used in the upcoming chase races in October. Chevrolet will be making a $200 donation for every lap the pace car leads the field under cautions at Talladega and Martinsville. Donations have been made for the race at Atlanta as well.

Patrick’s sponsor Go Daddy and Public Interest Registry have made a $50,000 donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

With the month of October officially under way, Patrick will be one of many within the NASCAR circuit to help raise awareness for the special cause. Heading toward the remainder of the season and with the races this month, many drivers and teams take actions toward the cause, as well.

As one of the sports most popular drivers, Patrick helps serve the purpose to bring up awareness for breast cancer, as well as helping NASCAR throughout several of their causes. October will be the time to make the track pink.
