Gale Helps Breast Cancer Survivors Turn Martinsville Speedway's Curbs Pink

As a race driver, Cale Gale knows it is best to come close, but not touch the curbs at Martinsville Speedway. Thursday he got closer than he’s ever been to those infamous curbs and he was smiling the entire time.

Gale, who competes in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, helped a group of breast cancer survivors paint Martinsville Speedway’s curbs pink to mark National Breast Cancer Awareness month and help bring more attention to the cause. The curbs will remain pink during the Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300 Late Model Stock race on October 21, the Kroger 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on October 27, and the TUMS Fast Relief 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race on October 28.

“I feel good about what we’re doing today, it’s obviously for a special cause,” said Gale, whose truck will be carrying the pink and black colors of Rheem’s Chase a Cure program in the Kroger 200. “It’s a charitable organization that helps benefit the Young Survival Coalition and raising awareness for breast cancer. It’s a lot of fun to be a part of and I think I look good in pink.”

The Young Survival Coalition was the first nonprofit organization to focus exclusively on the unique needs of young women diagnosed with breast cancer.

Kevin Harvick will run a similar black and pink Rheem’s Chase A Cure program paint scheme in the TUMS Fast Relief 500 on October 28 at Martinsville. Both drivers will be wearing special black and pink driver’s suits.

Gale had help in painting the curbs from four breast cancer survivors form the Martinsville-Henry County area that are part of the Martinsville and Henry County Coalition for Health and Wellness.

This was the second year that Martinsville Speedway turned its iconic curbs pink as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“We’ve all been touched by it (breast cancer). I don’t know of anybody who hasn’t been affected by it in one way or another. It just affects so many people, ” said Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell. “Hopefully something good will come out of this today and somewhere down the road we can find a cure. The breast cancer survivors that came out, I applaud them so much for their efforts. It’s a great day to bring awareness to a serious situation.”

There are two big weekends of action coming up at Martinsville Speedway, the Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300 on October 21 and the TUMS Fast Relief 500 weekend Oct. 26-28.
