NASCAR's Danica Patrick takes spin with breast cancer survivors

Posted: Updated:
HAMPTON, Ga. -

NASCAR fans, start your engines! A weekend of fun Labor Day events is shifting into high gear at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. A who's who of drivers are already pulling into town for this weekend's AdvoCare 500! Among them, the amazing Danica Patrick.

Danica took a moment to chat up Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken about what's being called "the biggest Labor Day Party in the U.S.A."  She also talked about taking some very special ladies for a spin as part of "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer."

They're breast cancer survivors and they, too, have a need for speed! To help raise awareness, a specially themed pink "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" Chevrolet Camaro SS is serving as the pace car for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Atlanta Motor Speedway
