Sarah Fisher "goes pink" for season finale IndyCar Series team owner/driver Sarah Fisher will be "going pink" for the season finale Oct. 10 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Sarah Fisher Racing will join with Susan G. Komen for the Cure to help kick off National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Fisher's No. 67 Dollar General-sponsored race car will be pink for the Firestone Indy 300.
"We really wanted to partner with Komen to raise funds for breast cancer research and community outreach programs," Fisher said. "We're so lucky to have a sponsor like Dollar General that supports our community outreach efforts. Together, we can broaden our support of Komen for the Cure and further the fight against breast cancer."
Fisher, 28, the only female owner/driver in the IndyCar Series, is hoping to attract attention to this disease that affects about 1 in 8 women in the United States alone.
"Breast cancer is a growing global problem that, without a cure, will kill more than 10 million women in the next 25 years," Fisher said. "SFR is committed to helping Komen decrease those numbers. I've lost a loved one to breast cancer, and I will do everything I can to help others in their battle."
Fisher also will roll out the new Dallara chassis, which she took ownership of last week thanks to sponsor Hartman Oil. The Firestone Indy 300 will be Fisher's sixth race of the season. Her highest IndyCar Series finish of second came at Homestead-Miami Speedway in 2001.
