Special-Edition Beetle GRCs for Breast Cancer Care and Research
The season finale also comes with a colorful and philanthropic twist. Both Beetle GRCs will be wearing special colors this weekend as Volkswagen celebrates the launch of the new, special edition #PinkBeetle. Speed will drive the No. 41 #PinkBeetle Beetle GRC in the season-ending doubleheader, while Foust will pilot the No. 34 Rockstar Perfectberry Rockstar Beetle GRC to raise visibility for The Pink Agenda — a charity dedicated to improving breast cancer care and research.
“As if this weekend needed more excitement, I’m happy to be driving the first race car version of the #PinkBeetle. Mine may have a few more ponies under the hood, but it’s no more eye-catching than what you can get in dealer showrooms this month. I’ll have a blast racing it around the track.” – Scot Speed, Driver of No. 41 Beetle GRC
