TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - October 20, 2008) - "NASCAR Angels" reality TV series will air an episode featuring the car makeover of an Arizona woman who co-founded a non-profit organization benefiting single moms with cancer. The car is currently being repaired at Von's CARSTAR, a Tucson collision repair center.

Von's CARSTAR is working on the car before it's transported to a Goodyear Gemini store in Phoenix for additional repairs. The car belongs to Andy Royal, who co-founded Singleton Moms. The non-profit group is named after her best friend, Michelle Singleton, who died of breast cancer. The organization serves as a lifeline for financial aid, preparing meals and even housecleaning for single moms with all forms of cancer.

Yvonne Loop, co-owner of Von's CARSTAR, said it was a great opportunity and served a wonderful purpose for a local cause that is giving back to the community. Loop, who owns Von's CARSTAR with her husband Patrick, said their affection for cars began a long time ago. "Patrick and I have owned Von's for two years, but we have been car enthusiasts for decades. We are thrilled to be helping Andy and the 'NASCAR Angels' fix up this car," she said.

Loop added that women in general need to be more vocal when it comes to their cars. "The No. 1 tip I can offer women is: ask questions. Ask to see a finished car so you can review their work. Too many times women are afraid to speak up and say: 'What are you talking about'? It's okay to ask and understand how your car is being repaired," said Loop.

Loop also offered some tips for maintaining your vehicle's life span:

--  Check tire pressure regularly. Temperature changes cause pressure to
    go up and down, which can wear out your tires.
--  Get your oil changed every 3,000 to 4,000 miles or whenever your car
    manufacturer recommends.
--  Follow the manufactures rules for maintenance as outlined in your
    vehicle owner guide.
    

This is the second time a CARSTAR location has been selected by "NASCAR Angels" to work on a car for a deserving family. CARSTAR Collision Centers is the largest group of independently owned and operated auto body repair stores in North America.
