NASCAR is not only about who comes first or who wins a championship. Undoubtedly, it’s a competitive sport and, above all, a $100 million high-value sports entertainment business. However, several unheard stories and countless hours of teamwork stay behind the garage of the NASCAR race teams. And these stories, if heard, will speak of the unbreakable bond of friendship between each member of a team.

For a driver, their team is like their second family. And what does a family do for you? Amongst other things, a family stands by you and supports you through thick and thin. On that very note, Legacy Motorclub and Team Chevrolet have extended their hands towards a noble cause, that includes NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series driver Carson Hocevar.

Last year, Kurt Busch‘s Window of Hope initiative collaborated with Legacy Motorclub.  Two of the LMC drivers, viz. Carson Hocevar and Erik Jones participated to support breast cancer prevention and its early detection. Moments before the Bank of America ROVAL in September, the duo wore pink t-shirts and joined hands to paint the pit walls pink in solidarity with the noble cause. And that was not all.

Every driver in the race had run a pink window net, which would later be autographed and auctioned to support multiple beneficiaries. Fast forward to today, LMC has come up with the tag #WeDriveFor, to congratulate and support Carson Hocevar’s mother, Amy Hocevar, who is a breast cancer survivor herself.
