KANSAS CITY, Kan. — In celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, officials from Nut Up Industries and JGL Racing announced Monday that NASCAR XFINITY Series driver Dylan Lupton will run a special pink paint scheme in Saturday’s Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas Speedway.

Partnering with Susan G. Komen Greater Kansas City, the No. 24 Nut Up Industries Toyota team has pledged to not only support the foundation, but also create exciting opportunities for NASCAR fans to donate and win limited edition prizes.

“We cannot thank Dylan Lupton, JGL Racing and Nut Up Industries enough for their support and ability to spread our message of breast cancer awareness during October,” said Denise Wiese, Susan G. Komen Greater Kansas City Interim Executive Director. “To have a NASCAR driver, his team and their sponsors get behind a campaign of this magnitude in front of tens of thousands of racing fans is immeasurable. Bringing this issue to light, sharing his day with breast cancer survivors and donating critical funds to support our mission is truly the definition of being More Than Pink.”

By submitting a $24 donation, each donor will be entered to win one of more than 50 prizes, including race-worn gloves, No. 24 pink t-shirts, JGL Racing pink crew shirts and more.

Additionally, each donation made from Oct. 2-17 will be matched dollar for dollar by the No. 24 team, with donors also receiving a limited-edition pink hero card.
“Everyone at JGL Racing is excited and honored to represent Susan G. Komen Greater Kansas City and the great cause behind the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign,” said team owner James Whitener.  “We commend the efforts of Nut Up Industries and Dylan in wanting to go pink for this Kansas race.  We look forward to hosting some breast cancer survivors with the team at the track on Saturday while also raising awareness and funds for this cause with the No. 24 Nut Up Toyota.”

The team has also created an opportunity for breast cancer survivors and those currently battling breast cancer in the Kansas City area to have a memorable experience at the race track.

Komen Kansas City has created a link where the public can share stories of loved ones or themselves and their battles with breast cancer, as well as being entered to become a VIP Guest of the team at Saturday’s Kansas Lottery 300.

Each survivor who is entered will be invited to a special unveiling of the pink paint scheme on Thursday, where they will receive limited edition signed hero cards, meet Lupton, take photos and write their name on the hood of the No. 24 for race-day in honor of their journey.

“I am thrilled to run this special paint scheme and have this opportunity to support such an impactful organization,” said Lupton. “I know my JGL Racing team is working hard so that we can go to Kansas and have a strong race.”
