Brazelton, GA, October 19, 2012—October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. SRT Motorsports has joined the commitment to end breast cancer through a partnership with the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC) during the 15th annual Petit Le Mans here at Road Atlanta, the final race of the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) 2012 season.
NBCC’s "Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®" logo will be prominently displayed on the No. 91 SRT Viper GTS-R for Saturday’s 1,000-mile or 10-hour race. Kuno Wittmer, Dominik Farnbacher and Ryan Hunter-Reay will share driving duties.
"We are thrilled that SRT Motorsports will carry Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® to the finish line in this exciting event in Atlanta," said NBCC President Fran Visco. "With support from our partners like SRT Motorsports, we are headed to a real win in breast cancer—the end of breast cancer by January 1, 2020."
NBCC is a grassroots advocacy organization that seeks to improve public policies surrounding breast cancer research, diagnosis and treatment. Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® is a call to end the disease by Jan. 1, 2020.
"This is our opportunity to support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, raise awareness of the importance of breast cancer issues and to support a great organization – the National Breast Cancer Coalition," said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO – Street and Racing Technology Brand (SRT) and Motorsports. "We applaud NBCC’s strategic plan of action to end breast cancer by 2020 and are pleased we can support that effort through our racing program."
The Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®-sponsored entry will be joined by a second car from SRT Motorsports. The No. 93 Pennzoil Ultra SRT Viper GTS-R will be driven by Tommy Kendall, Marc Goossens and Jonathan Bomarito.
