Bishop, motorsports and event marketing director for Federated. “Now, for four straight years, we have gone all out with special PINK car wraps and PINK racing merchandise to raise funds for CMC Northeast.

I know my family, fans and friends will all get behind the Federated team’s PINK fundraising efforts in October.”
