on

DOVER, Del. – Danica Patrick, driver of the No. 10 Warriors in Pink Ford Fusion, will be sporting a new color this weekend in the Apache Warrior 400 at Dover International Speedway, pink. She’ll also drive the same color scheme next weekend, Oct. 8, at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

“The Ford Warriors in Pink race car really looks great,” expressed Patrick. “Cancer impact all of us. I bet there are very few people out there who don’t know someone impacted by breast cancer.”

Danica Patrick, driver of the No. 10 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford, walks to her car before qualifying for the Apache Warrior 400 at Dover International Speedway.

Backed behind her women’s clothing line, Warriors in Pink is to honor the powerful, courageous women and men engaged in the fight against breast cancer. The car dons a warrior symbol, which is used to uplift those who exhibit strength and courage in the face of their greatest battle.

“If we all work together; we can help make a difference. Whether it’s starting a conversation or inspiring donations, every little bit helps. That’s why I’m proud to drive the Warriors in Pink Fusion to help raise awareness.

One of the most successful women in the history of motorsports, Patrick is ready to get back to the monster mile.

“I always like going to Dover. The track is pretty fun. I remember everyone telling me how unique and challenging Dover was prior to my first race,” stated Patrick.

In 10 starts at Dover, Patrick has one top-10, a 19th place finish in the spring race. She has an average finish of 21.6 at the one-mile racetrack.

The Apache Warrior 400 is the first elimination race of the 2017 Monster Energy Cup Series playoffs. After the checkers fly on Sunday, four drivers will be eliminated from contention for the Title.
