Haney Racing In the Pink for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Keith Haney Racing (KHR) is going pink for its final two races of the season in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Both of KHR’s Pro Mod Camaros will carry pink livery for the Throw Down in T-Town at Osage Casino Tulsa Raceway Park this weekend (Oct. 11-13) as well as the ADRL season finale at Royal Purple Raceway in Houston (Oct. 18-20).
Keith Haney (above) will drive in both events, with Monroe Guest behind the wheel of the car that is normally black for the Tulsa race and Erica Enders-Stevens in the car for the Houston race.
“I’ve had close friends and family members affected by cancer,” Haney said. “It hits close to home, and we’re happy to bring some awareness to the disease and raise some money.”
Haney has long been a supporter of cancer-related charities, carrying decals on his cars this season for the Cancer Sucks! foundation. Plus, he has made appearances with his race cars at Cancer Treatment Center in Tulsa to show support.
“Going pink is an extension of that,” Haney said. “We’re constantly doing all we can to help. I’m a big supporter of charities that need our help. We try to pick the ones that can make a difference.”
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, a collaboration of national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies working together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease, and provide greater access to services.
Pink is the color of choice to represent Breast Cancer Awareness month, and Haney happily changed the colors of his race cars. He has the full support of sponsors RacingJunk.com and Lucas Oil in the endeavor. Haney’s car dealerships have gotten into the spirit of the month, too, with Classic Chevrolet in Owosso, Okla., going pink, from painting pink lines in the parking lot to placing pink balloons across the dealership.
Haney and his race team will go one step further by setting up a booth at the last two races for fans to make donations.
“We’ll have a tent at the racetrack where fans can donate to the Cancer Treatment Centers,” Haney said. “We’ll take donations both in Tulsa and in Houston.”
