READING, Penn. (October 2, 2013) – Terry McMillen’s Amalie Oil / UNOH / All Star Performance green, gator themed NHRA Top Fuel Dragster will turn pink again this October. McMillen’s hope is to raise awareness for breast cancer and money for She4Life, a charity that McMillen’s team holds dear to their hearts.
According to the American Cancer Society, Cancer prevalence in the United States is a little more that 12.5 million people.
“Cancer is something that touches all of us,” McMillen said. “If not directly, it’s indirectly through friends and loved ones. Racing with this pink car is something that everyone seems to relate to well.”
Three seasons ago McMillen debuted an all pink dragster in what some called the first since Shirley Muldowney raced her pink dragster in 1980. That first year McMillen’s pink team jerseys were auctioned off to benefit She4Life and raised a little over $3,000. Fast forward to 2013 and McMillen and She4Life have a number of opportunities for fans to participate.
With donation packages that range in names from “Warm Up” to “Wally” and prices from $40-$230, fans can get anything from a name on McMillen’s dragster to a package that includes a pink replica dragster, team pink jersey and more.
Other McMillen marketing partners have stepped in to support She4Life, inlcuding UNOH’s Steve Farmer who is helping to faciitate NHRA and NASCAR packages and airfare to Mark Adelizzi at Flatout Gaskets producing custom jewlery under his Marcus Creatus brand. Fans can also purchase McMillen’s pink diecast dragster at Plan B Sales (http://planbsales.com) where a portion of each sale goes to She4Life.
“She4Life is an organization that we’re proud to be associated with and it’s excting to see our marketing partners support them also,” McMillen said. “Mechanix Wear Gloves even produces pink gloves for our team to wear – Ray Murphy from T&R Graphics works tireless hours to get that pink car wrapped – everyone on our team really gets behind this it’s something we look forward to every year.”
McMillen will race the pink car for the remaining three races and packages will be available until the week October 31 or while supplies last. Visit She4Life.com for more details.
