Force to run pink breast cancer awareness car in Reading
Monday, October 01, 2012


John Force Racing driver Courtney Force is taking advantage of the month of October and the Auto-Plus NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway to show her support for those who have been affected by breast cancer. This weekend in Reading, Force will sport a pink Traxxas Funny Car Ford Mustang to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to increase support for breast cancer prevention and research.

“I’m really excited to be able to run my first specialty car at our next event in Maple Grove,” said Force. “Being that it is pink and brings awareness to breast cancer makes me really proud to showcase this car in Reading. I really hope to get a lot of people’s attention with it and show our support from Traxxas and John Force Racing. It’s really cool to kick off October with this. My crew guys are just as excited as I am even though it is hot pink because it’s for a great cause.”

The Action Racing Collectables diecast of Force’s Traxxas pink Ford Mustang Funny Car is available to order on LionelRacing.com. A portion of the proceeds from each diecast sold will benefit breast cancer awareness, research, and prevention.

“So many women and families have been affected by breast cancer. Driving the Traxxas pink Funny Car is just one small way I can show that I care and support them as we try to find a cure for this terrible disease,” said Force.
