VP’s New “Special Edition” Motorsports Container to Promote Breast Cancer Awareness

SAN ANTONIO, TX – October 3, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Pink has special significance during October as the color of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and VP Racing Fuels has produced a new “Special Edition” Pink Motorsports ContainerTM in recognition of the cause. With each sale of a pink container during October, VP will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Prevent Cancer Foundation in support of its cancer prevention research, education and community outreach programs. The pink containers will only be produced in a limited quantity run, so the offer is available during October or while supplies last.

“Many of us have friends and family members who have dealt with breast cancer,” said Alan Cerwick, President, VP Racing Fuels. “We enthusiastically support the efforts of the Prevent Cancer Foundation and hope in some small way our pink “Special Edition” Motorsport Containers can help increase awareness and advance successful treatments for this terrible disease.”

VP Racing Fuels’ 5-gallon Motorsport Containers have long been popular among racers and race fans, who could choose from 9 different colors to express their individuality.  VP’s new pink container provides yet another distinctive color option, along with the opportunity to support breast cancer awareness.
