Obsession with Breasts Hit a Mature Level this Weekend in Talladega

The NASCAR Foundation has announced that NASCAR Day will "Go Pink" through a joint partnership with FOX Sports Supports and Susan G. Komen for the Cure April 24-26 during the Aaron's Talladega Dream Weekend.

Through the partnership between The NASCAR Foundation, FOX Sports Supports and Komen for the Cure, a portion of the net proceeds raised through the program will benefit Komen for the Cure, supporting its promise to save lives end breast cancer forever. Specifically, the money raised will support the Susan G. Komen Scholarship Fund – a fund specifically designed for children whose mothers have lost their battle against cancer.

In 2009, FOX Sports has aligned with Komen for the Cure through the FOX Sports Supports program as one of their benefiting organizations. NASCAR on FOX personalities will don their pink apparel and show their support by wearing their NASCAR Day pins throughout the race weekend. FOX Sports launched FOX Sports Supports last year to raise awareness, provide financial assistance and spur volunteerism for worthy health-related charities.

Volunteers from Komen's North Central Alabama Affiliate will be out at the track Friday-Sunday collecting $5 donations. In return for the donation, fans will receive a collectible NASCAR Day lapel pin. The NASCAR Foundation will also have commemorative NASCAR Day pink t-shirts available for a limited time at the NASCAR.COM Superstore and at The NASCAR Foundation booth at Talladega Superspeedway. The t-shirts are available now online, and fans are encouraged to wear them to the track on race weekend. Half of the net proceeds from these efforts will benefit the Susan G. Komen Scholarship Fund.

The fashionistas go pink every October to walk in our local Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. I have actually been a chair for the past two years and have the honor to meet some great people that have won the battle and have now focused their energies to work really hard to end this battle. We strive that our children will not know the word cancer when they are our age. We are excited for NASCAR and this awareness campaign! We hope that you will support this and other NASCAR Day activities. Just think it could be YOUR dollar that cures this disease!

I daresay the boys in the Talladega infield shouting "Show us your tits!" think they're doing their best to raise breast cancer awareness. Think Grand Marshall Bubba the Love Sponge will wear a pink sash? I mean no disrespect to "Go Pink"-- I hope it's a wild success -- But there will surely be contrasts that day. We are talking Talladega ...
