When the Camping World Truck Series arrives at Martinsville Speedway later this month, Gray Gaulding’s No. 20 Gemini Southern Chevrolet will have a distinct pink hue to it. In order to increase awareness during October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Gaulding will sport the pink in honor of his grandmother, who is a survivor.

“I was only two when my grandma Gloria got diagnosed with breast cancer. I really don’t remember a whole lot about it, but have learned over the years how it impacted her life and my whole families” said Gaulding. “Anytime we can help raise awareness shines a little bit of light for my grandma, as she is my number one fan and supporter.”
Additionally, Gaulding’s truck will feature the names of friends who have fought or are currently fighting breast cancer. The 16-year-old has seven starts in the Truck Series this season, and his best finish of fourth came at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park at the end of August.
