The Ford Bold Moves web-based documentary series has released its 16th episode, which focuses on Ford's Warriors in Pink program that supports the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. We're glad the series switched off the topic of product, as we were becoming increasingly frustrated with its back-against-the-wall, underdog-pulls-it-out attitude towards Ford's current situation. This episode, however, highlights Ford's giving nature, and give it has. The company is about to reach $100 million in total contributions made to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. We meet the Warriors in Pink in this episode, who are foot soldiers funded by Ford and charged with the mission of eradicating breast cancer. We also spend the day at the track with Champ Car driver Katherine Legge during her recent race at Road America where she slid behind the wheel of a special car wearing Warriors in Pink livery, i.e. a baby pink paint job. Unfortunately Katherine scratched up that pretty paint job pretty good when she lost control of the car, hit the wall and virtually disintegrated the ride. The crash looked worse than it was and the safety measures did their job, as Katherine was fine and returned to racing five days later.

      A minor correction: She didn't "lose control of the car" as noted in the piece. The rear wing seperated from its mount resulting in a acute lose of downforce over the rear wheels upon approach to a very high speed turn. Once the wing left the car, the car left the road. There was no control from this moment on to speak of.

      when you say 'she lost control of the car' it makes it sound like it was Katherines fault. It wasn't part of the rear wing failed. No one would have 'saved' that, not even Schuey

      I just wish prostate cancer would get as much attention from the media.

      Oh well.
