In 2011, cancer survivor, successful entrepreneur and racecar driver, Al Carter, and co-driver and friend, Hugh Plumb, launched the B+ Racing program.

B+ Racing is a sports marketing program designed to raise money and increase awareness of The B+ Foundation, one of the fastest growing national foundations, present in 49 states and engaged in the fight against childhood cancer. 46 children are diagnosed with cancer each school day and less than 4% of federal cancer research funding goes to fund childhood cancer research.

Today the program is in its 3rd seasons and Carter and Plumb are looking to involve more corporate partners and create innovative fund raising programs such as "Leave your change for B+" allowing small or large companies to interact with their customers and also use the B+ (Be Positive) Foundation in their social mission.

The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation honors the memory of Andrew McDonough, a 14-year-old athlete and 'A' student from Wilmington, Delaware. The B+ Foundation is one of the largest grantors of financial assistance to families of kids with cancer in the country.

The B+ Foundation funds hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of research grants each year at places like St. Jude and Seattle Children's Hospital.

$0.90 of each dollar spent goes directly to the mission of funding research and helping families of kids with cancer. The B+ Foundation provides financial assistance to families of children with cancer nationwide.

In the last two years, The B+ Foundation awarded over $1,000,000 to families of children with cancer while giving over $500,000 to support research efforts. To learn more about B+ visit www.bepositive.org.

The new website offers the possibility to interact with our fans since they have direct access from the Home page to B+ racing's Facebook and Twitter sites. Fans can also read all the latest news from B+ Racing blog and also from The B+ Foundation.

The site allows fans to order signature B+ Racing merchandise and thanks to the Event Page they can follow their favorite team throughout the race weekend.

In addition, photo galleries allow the fans to check the great pictures taken at the racetrack or during B+ signature events as well as the exciting video that will be posted starting after the Barber race.
