Mason Covey wanted to do something to his late-model racecar to make it stand out and raise awareness about cancer.

The 22-year-old racer from Seymour received backing from Performance Films Distributors and LLumar Window Film to make his breast cancer awareness campaign possible. He got his sponsors on board; Brad Erwin of MasterSbilt in Crothersville created the body, and Celery Signs of Medora was responsible for the lettering and design.

People were able to see the No. 44 MasterSbilt Corvette at the recent Jackson 50 race at Brownstown Speedway, and they will have an opportunity to see it at other events and races for the remainder of the 2012 season.

While Covey and his family have not been personally affected by breast cancer, they know people who have been touched by various types of cancer.

“We just thought it would be awesome to do that and raise a bunch of money and donate,” Covey said, noting that all proceeds from the Jackson 50 fundraiser and other events and races the rest of this season will go to the Don and Dana Myers Cancer Center in Seymour.
