Weekend Recs : CLAW @ Nascar !
The race is this SATURDAY and you can find out where and when it will be broadcast here! So check it out and according to Nylon Magazine: Here is a shocker: While Nascar may have Danica Patrick, they don’t have any women designing their cars. Lame.
So consider Claw Money the glass ceiling breaker for the auto world.
The graffiti legend became the first woman to design a Nascar truck when she teamed up with Nelson Piquet Jr. and Alpinestars. The ride, a Chevy Silverado, is decked out in Claw Money’s trademark claw. You’ll notice a lot of hot pink–all in homage to Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Piquet Jr. hits the road with it on October 6, at the Nascar Camping World Truck Series at the Talladega Superspeedway. But you can also get your hands on it–at least, a mini version: In addition to a limited edition T-shirt there’s also a 1/24th scale model of the race truck that will be put up for auction on eBay, with all proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
And maybe in the time it takes for the truck to circle the raceway, Nascar will have had its second female car designer hard at work
