Each year, it is estimated over 220,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and because of these staggering numbers, October in America is recognized as "Breast Cancer Awareness Month". To help promote the importance of early detection through yearly mammograms for women over the age of 40, Brennan Newberry, NTS Motorsports, and Qore-24 Antimicrobial Hand Purifier will be racing a special pink paint scheme for this month's Kroger 200 at Martinsville Speedway, in Martinsville, Virginia, and the WinStar World Casino 350K at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth. Statistics show, when breast cancer is caught at its earliest states, the 5-year survival rate is 98%. "I am excited to have a sponsor like
Qore-24 that understands the importance of Breast Cancer Awareness month", said Brennan Newberry, driver of the Qore-24 NTS Motorsports Chevrolet in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. "October, in our country, is not only about supporting the many families who have been affected by Breast Cancer, but to emphasize the importance of yearly checkups. The numbers don't lie, the earlier someone finds out they have breast cancer the better their chances of winning the fight."
Newberry will not only carry pink logos on his Chevrolet Silverado, but also the names of NTS Motorsports employees' loved ones who are breast cancer survivors and those currently battling the disease. "Breast cancer hits close to home with my family and I having family members and close friends who have been affected", said Newberry, "Carrying their names on my truck for these two October races is the least I can do to show my support for these remarkable and strong women." Newberry will pilot a pink paint scheme on the No.9 NTS Motorsports entry at Martinsville Speedway on October 25th and will continue his drive for awareness with the No.20 Qore-24 Chevrolet at Texas Motor Speedway on October 31st.
