READING, Penn. (October 2, 2012) – Don’t adjust your glasses or television sets, Terry McMIllen’s Amalie Oil / UNOH Top Fuel Dragster will take on a familiar look again this October – pink. McMillen hopes his dragster and pink outfitted crew will help draw attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month and She4Life, a charity that supports everyday necessities to help families fight the fight in the battle to become cancer survivors.
“Our whole team is excited about wearing pink again this October,” McMillen said. “In fact we’re real excited about seeing many other teams going pink this season. No other form of motorsports has this much support for Breast Cancer Awareness from multiple teams and we’re proud and honored to be a part of it. I know my guys are glad they’re not the only ones wearing pink in the pits this year.”
Last season McMillen’s team helped raise nearly $40,000 for their favorite charities in October. They’re hoping this season will be as successful. For a $50 donation to She4Life friends and fans can place names on McMillen’s dragster to either honor or in memory, of those that are fighting cancer or who have lost their fight.
“Seeing those names on the dragster last season was touching,” McMillen said. “Not only for us, but for all the people that saw their name or the name of a loved one on the car. So, this year we wanted to open it up to everyone by giving them an opportunity to help with a small donation and to see the name of a loved one on the car. We call them cancer survivors. I like to call them cancer warriors. They didn’t just survive this life challenge, they beat it everyday like the enemy it is.”
It’s not to late to get a name on McMillen’s dragster for Vegas. Make your donation and add your name here.
McMillen’s pink jerseys will also be auctioned off in November. Visit TerryMcMillen.com later this month for details.
