joslin NASCAR 150.bmpJoslin Diabetes Centerís partnership with Walgreens is bringing it into pharmacies nationwide. Now the 10-month-old alliance is hitting the road.

Joslinís name is going NASCAR, along with Walgreens and its co-sponsor in car racing, the drug company Eli Lilly. Logos from all three will grace a Ford Fusion driven for Carl A. Haas Motorsports by rookie driver Kyle Krisiloff. Heíll be racing Saturday in Loudon, N.H., as part of the NASCAR Busch Series.

The effort to drive awareness of diabetes is the first of its kind for NASCAR, according to Joslin. The clinic and research center is not paying for the sponsorship, spokeswoman Jenny Catherine Eriksen said.
