October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Matt DiBenedetto and BK Racing are doing their part to raise awareness next weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

For the Bank of America 500, DiBenedetto’s No. 83 Toyota will be pink and white in honor of the month. The car will be sponsored by Cosmo Motors for the event, which is the first race of the second round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

DiBenedetto was present at the Paint Pit Wall Pink event at Charlotte Motor Speedway Wednesday along with Jeb Burton, Darrell Wallace Jr., Elliott Sadler, Blake Koch, Ryan Reed and Jimmie Johnson.

The race and DiBenedetto’s paint scheme can be seen Oct. 8 on NBC.
