May 25, 2022 — If you are looking for the “next big name” in Motorsports then look no further than Elvis Rankin. Elvis is a 14-year-old from Indianapolis who has been making a name for himself in SIM racing and just earned himself an enormous opportunity to race in the Formula series. Don’t be mistaken, Elvis has plenty of track time, too. As a matter of fact, his entire 2016 USAC .25 Midget National Title awards and race car are on display at the Museum of American Speed in Lincoln, Nebraska.
To kick off the 2022 season, Elvis has chosen to display the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation artwork on his race car for the entire 2022 season. This collaboration was made possible by entrepreneur and philanthropist Kathy Ireland, who serves as NPCF’s International Youth Chair, David Frazer, CEO of NPCF, and Bob Moore, CMO of Motivation Motorsports.
“Elvis is a remarkable young man whose extraordinary talent is matched by his desire to eradicate childhood cancer. We look forward to cheering Elvis on the track for years to come. Too many of our children are suffering and, sadly, too little is being done. I pray that each person learning about NPCF will join us in our peaceful war on cancer, and make the dream of a world without cancer come true,” says Ms. Ireland, Chair and CEO of kathy ireland® Worldwide, listed as the 15th most powerful brand in the world by License Global.
Elvis will be rolling into Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, CT later this week in preparation for the kickoff of the race season Memorial Day Weekend. “Thrilled to kick off race season supporting the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation,” says Elvis. “43 children are diagnosed each day with childhood cancer. I am happy to join the fight and to honor all these brave young kids.”
“The NPCF is grateful for the support of Motivation Motorsports and Elvis Rankin,” says David Frazer. “This is an outstanding opportunity for auto enthusiasts to support our mission of childhood cancer research via sponsorship.”
The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research to eliminate childhood cancer through the Sunshine Project, the Foundation’s collaborative research initiative. By partnering with doctors and researchers from the country’s top institutions, the Sunshine Project is fast-tracking the development of new drugs and therapies that will ultimately lead to the cure of childhood cancers. The NPCF has received a perfect 100% score for financial health and transparency and is recognized as the top-rated cancer charity in the U.S. by Charity Navigator.
