Chase Elliott will run a special pink Hooters livery for the upcoming Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Dover to promote breast cancer awareness, his sponsor Hooters announced through its twitter account Tuesday.
The popular driver’s No. 9 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 will carry the white and pink Hooters paint scheme for the October 6 race as part of the restaurant chain’s “Give A Hoot” breast cancer awareness campaign. A special, limited edition line of Chase Elliott merchandise is also set to be released as part of the campaign, a portion of the proceeds from which will benefit The V Foundation for Cancer Research.

Hooters will auction off Elliott’s pink racing gloves and shoes after the race as well, with the proceeds from the auction also going to The V Foundation for Cancer Research. Hooters says it has so far donated $6 million toward the fight against breast cancer through the Give A Hoot fundraising platform.
