Pink racecars are not a common sight, but if you are at Atlanta Motor Speedway on August 31st or September 2nd, you will see one. On August 31st, breast cancer survivors and their guests will get to ride around the track in the pink Chevrolet Camaro SS pace car.
Team Chevy NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Jamie McMurray and four-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion Ron Hornaday, Jr. will be their drivers. NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Danica Patrick will also be there to meet survivors.
On September 2nd during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series AdvoCare 500, Chevy will donate $200 to the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer initiative for every caution lap run. These laps will be led by the pink Chevrolet Camaro SS that will feature the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer logo.
If you can’t be at the track, watch the race on Sunday and keep your eyes out for the pink Camaro SS.

Since 2008, Subaru has run its Share the Love campaign to help support charities. This year, however, will be a little different. Subaru is letting its Facebook fans help choose which charities to support.
Subaru has already chosen three charities and will let the public choose the next two. Each day, Facebook users can vote from among six charities. The voting started on August 6th and will end on August 26th.
The two charities with the most votes will join the ASPCA, Make-A-Wish, and Meals on Wheels to complete the list of “Share the Love” charities. Then, for every new vehicle Subaru sells or leases between November 2, 2012 and January 2, 2013, they will donate $250 to the charity of the car purchaser’s choosing.
The six charities on the voting list include the Alzheimer’s Association, American Forests, First Book, Leave No Trace, Special Olympics, and USO. The winning charities will be announced on August 27th.
To voice your support, go to https://www.facebook.com/subaruofamerica/app_345388515542172 and vote for your choice of charities.
The new 2013 Chevy Spark doesn’t have a CD player, but it does have MyLink Radio, which enables drivers to sync their smartphones to the car and use everything on the phone, in the car (including music). One of the apps that Chevy has developed for use with MyLink Radio is the BringGo navigation app.
BringGo will allow drivers to connect their smartphone to MyLink and then they will be able to use the navigation app. This app is cloud-based software and will display live traffic information as well as normal functions of any high-quality navigation system like, emergency information, points of interest, and local Google search.
“The beauty of BringGo is it gives our Spark customers the safety and functionality of a more expensive navigation system without the need for additional equipment and at a tremendous value,” said Sara LeBlanc, global program manager for GM infotainment. “It also demonstrates how easy it is to expand and update MyLink Radio’s capabilities for Spark.”
One added benefit of the BringGo system is that when your phone is disconnected from the car, you will still have access to the maps and routes on your phone. If you already purchased a 2013 Spark, you can get a free update at the dealership to make the embedded BringGo app functional. You will still have to purchase the app for your phone, but it will only cost about $50 and is available in app stores, like iTunes.
