With September designated as National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, Martin Truex Jr.’s Furniture Row/Denver Mattress Chevrolet will showcase a teal appearance for Sunday night’s Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway.

The teal look, which is the official ribbon color for ovarian cancer awareness, will be displayed on the hood, roof, quarter panels and rear bumper (TV panel) of Truex’s No. 78 race car. Truex’s steering wheel and gloves will also have a teal appearance.

Thanks to the spirited volunteer work of Truex’s girlfriend Sherry Pollex, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer more than a year ago, a number of Sprint Cup Series drivers will also be involved in the fundraising effort to help raise awareness, advocacy and research for ovarian cancer during the Darlington race weekend.

Danica Patrick will have a teal-accented steering wheel in her No. 10 GoDaddy Chevrolet. She will also wear the teal-accented race gloves as will Dale Earnhardt Jr., Ryan Newman and Kasey Kahne.
