Children living with type 1 diabetes (T1D), ages 5 to 18, are invited to let their imaginations race for the checkered flag in the 2015 Race Car Design Contest for JDRF, hosted by Motorcraft/Quick Lane Tire and Auto Centers!

Kids, start your sketching! Click these links to access the official entry form, design sheet, and contest rules, and press release. The winning design will appear on the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion, driven by Ryan Blaney, at the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 26, 2015, in Indianapolis, Indiana.

JDRF happily celebrates eight years of partnering with Ford Motor Company to present the Race Car Design Contest, which has raised more than $400,000 for JDRF and T1D research to date. Your creativity inspires us as we work together to create a world without T1D.
