Rev committee member Michelle Christy commissioned Atwood to come up with a great outfit for her to wear on the red carpet. During a fitting on Tuesday, she shared why this event is so important to her and her husband. 

"My husband is a cancer survivor and that's how he began with donating to the IU Health Foundation because they did a procedure on him that saved his life," Christy said. "He's now cancer-free and so we feel like we want to give back as much as we can."

Christy is going for an edgy racing look that she and Atwood are putting the finishing touches on. 

Beyond the fashion, Rev is a fundraiser that provides medical services not only for people at the track but also for the racers and the fans at the track.
