One Cure is all about speeding new and promising treatments to all cancer patients – pets and people – which is why we’re thrilled to team up with the car racing industry to raise awareness of our ground-breaking work in comparative oncology. Non-traditional? You bet, but we love partnering with folks who also like to speed towards a goal. With the help of our partners, we’re hoping to spread the word that cancer occurs in pets at a similar rate to humans, and that it occurs naturally. Cancer is cancer, so what is learned in pets being treated for cancer holds promise to also benefit people, and vice versa. Because we are in the business of curing cancer we owe thanks to these partnership opportunities to a generous benefactor who saw car racing as a great vehicle (pun intended) to raise public awareness about One Cure.
Graham Rahal #15
“I am beyond excited to partner with One Cure and bring more focus and energy to discovering ways to help find a cure to save the lives of our loved ones, including our pets, who we consider family members. One Cure is a tremendous addition to our program. As an animal lover and lifelong supporter of animal charities, this is going to be a powerful movement for our team as well as something our fans, sponsors and competitors can work together on to make an impact.”
Graham Rahal will race with One Cure in the primary position on April 7 in Phoenix and September 2 in Portland.
Jay Howard #7
“To say I am excited is an understatement. There are no words to describe how happy I am to be representing CSU’s One Cure initiative – it’s an honor to be flying the green and black colors! One Cure’s goal is to raise awareness and funding for the Flint Animal Cancer Center to continue the fight against cancer; on race day, we will be fighting for something more than just the Borg Warner trophy."
Jay Howard will race the One Cure car in the Indianapolis 500 on May 27.

"I've always heard of One Cure since I came to Stewart-Haas Racing, but we met with them in Daytona and I was amazed at what they are doing for people and pets.The bottom line I learned is this: There isn't much difference between dogs and humans when it comes to cancer. What they get we get. We're both in the same environment, drink the same water and react the same way. So, One Cure is researching cancer in dogs and other pets not only to treat them, but to apply that research in the hopes it will lead to curing cancer in humans, as well. Everyone knows somebody who has been touched by cancer. I like to have fun in life, but racing is my job and I take it very seriously and, even as seriously as I take racing, I'd like to think there are few things more important to all of us than finding a cure for cancer."
Clint Bowyer will race with One Cure in the primary position in Las Vegas on March 3, in Sonoma on June 23, and in Kansas on October 20.
