LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – Check out this race car driver, who's isn't old enough to have a driver's license.

Blake Wilson, 14, started "team racing for a cure" back in March, to promote cancer awareness and raise money for local kids undergoing treatment.

Blake even got the idea to put a pink ribbon decal on his car to support breast cancer awareness month.

The teen driver also has something special planned Saturday at the Speedorama Racetrack.

"People who have had breast cancer or people who have had family members who have suffered from breast cancer are going to sign the ribbon," said Wilson.

Titus Griggs, 7, is battling brain cancer.

He got to sign his name on the hood race car this afternoon and even got to take a couple of laps around the track.

To find out how you can support "team racing for a cure" and to get your own decal or t-shirt, you can contact Jena Thompson at 936-240-9015. Decals are $5 and t-shirts are $15.
