The fire truck crew will be dressed in pink fire suits and are known as “Guardians of the Ribbon.” The Guardians of the Ribbon crew drive hundreds of miles across the country carrying signatures of people who have battled cancer in support of all women in their fight against cancer. More information about the Pink Heals Fire Truck can be found on their website www.pinkfiretrucks.org <http://www.pinkfiretrucks.org>
The Stratosphere along with NHRA® drivers Melanie Troxel, Matt Smith and Angie Smith will help the Stratosphere kick off its second annual Scream for the Cure promotion to support the Susan G. Komen for the Cure ® Southern Nevada on November 1 starting at 4 p.m. The Pink Heals Fire Truck will be on display outside the Stratosphere from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. As the fire truck concludes its National Tour, the Stratosphere will kick off its promotion to remind everyone that cancer awareness needs to continue even though National Breast Cancer Awareness month has concluded. The Scream for the Cure promotion will raise money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure ® Southern Nevada with each coupon that is presented to purchase Tower Admission or Tower Admission and Rides at Stratosphere Ticketing between November 1 and December 29. Coupons will be available at the kickoff event and can be printed online at the Susan G.

NASCAR® driver Jeffrey Earnhardt, son of Kerry Earnhardt, will also be at the event on Monday night to show his support of not only womens’ fight against cancer but his support of the many firemen across the nation. Jeffrey has been joining firemen across Alabama to educate children about fire safety. Stratosphere is proud to have their logo displayed on the # 6 Fuel Doctor Chevrolet in the Camping World Truck Series race on October 30, 2010.
The mission statement of the Pink Heals Fire Truck is to “Care Enough to Wear Pink” so the Stratosphere has chosen to have a special pink logo on the truck as Jeffrey makes his first truck race appearance in Talladega, a race track where his grandfather, Dale Earnhardt, earned his 76th and final win on October 17, 2000. Jeffrey’s truck will also carry the logos of the Pink Heals Fire Truck and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure ® Southern Nevada logos as well.
