NASCAR Cup Series teams display pink window netting in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month
CONCORD, NC, September 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Veteran NASCAR Cup Series driver Kurt Busch announced that the Pink Window Net program Window of Hope will return for a second year to show support for breast cancer survivors and those who continue to fight fight breast cancer. Thermal Control Products will be providing each participating NASCAR Cup Series driver with a pink window mesh for display at next month’s Bank of America ROVAL™ 400 run at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
After the October 9th ROVAL race, each participating driver will autograph their window net, which will be auctioned off through the NASCAR Foundation, with proceeds benefiting the Atrium Health Levine Cancer Institute’s PINK project. Project PINK was created to increase access to life-saving mammography screening for uninsured women in the area. Proceeds from Window of Hope will help fund Free Mammography Days in underserved communities where the need is greatest.
The inspiration for “Window of Hope” came from a request from a young Busch fan to support breast cancer awareness. In September 2019, Kurt Busch received a letter from a young fan, Mason Bradley, expressing how big he was a fan of the 2004 champion and his hopes of one day meeting Busch in person. Mason’s letter included a hand-drawn image of Busch’s car with a note that read, “Maybe you could make the window screen pink.” Bradley’s request for the pink window screen was an inspiration to support others, like his mother Stephanie, who was opposed at the time Battled breast cancer but is now in remission. With the dedication and support of NASCAR, the NASCAR Foundation and Thermal Control Products, “Window of Hope” finally became a reality at Charlotte Motor Speedway last year. The 2021 program raised more than $100,000 benefiting breast cancer research and treatment.
“We started this program with hopes of continuing for years to come, so I’m incredibly grateful that industry has jumped on board to help us bring back the window of hope for year two,” Busch said . “Last year was such a success raising over $100,000 and I look forward to seeing how much we can raise this year to support the Charlotte community through the Levine Cancer Institute’s PINK project. We couldn’t do this without the support of NASCAR fans, drivers, teams and Thermal Control Products.”
The auction for the signed pink window nets opens on October 10th and ends on October 17th. For more information and a full list of participating riders, visit. https://www.nascarfoundation.org/WindowOfHope
