Hard Core Performance in Women's Race for the Cure by K&N Filters Trophy Truck
Pretty in pink took on a whole new meaning at the 4th Annual Powder Puff Race for the Cure. More than 185 women racers went to Barstow, California in support of Cedars-Sinai Women’s Breast Cancer Research Center.
The K&N Jefferies Racing Crew was there in pink to show its support. Jenna Jefferies and her sister-in-law Mindy Jefferies borrowed Damen Jefferies No. 22 K&N Filters Trophy Truck for the event. Damen is Jenna’s brother and Mindy’s husband.

Hard core Race for the Cure course is miles of harsh bumps, rock and blinding dust and dirt
“Everyone was wearing pink, the guys and the girls,” said Jenna Jefferies. “Naturally, the trophy truck had to go pink for the day.”
The Race for the Cure is hard core and one of the largest female dominated races in the country. The goal is to drive as fast as possible and as many laps as possible in three hours. Each lap is 27 miles worth of harsh bumps, rocks and blinding dust and dirt.
The No. 22 K&N Trophy Truck is equipped with a K&N designed air induction system and a K&N performance oil filter to provide Team Jefferies with the power and protection it needs for racing under extreme conditions. “Our K&N filter is amazing,” said Jefferies. “It stops 100 percent of the dirt and silt from damaging the engine. It’s hard to see past the dust sometimes but our K&N filters manage to filter out the dust and debris while making horsepower. K&N filters continue to attest that they can withstand any environment.”
“We hit a rock and had a flat tire on the third lap, said Jefferies. “We’re not allowed to get out of the truck unless we break down completely. Fortunately we made it to the pit area and the K&N Jefferies Racing Crew was ready to change it.”
The Jefferies women were back in the thick of things right away, absorbing body jarring terrain and eventually crossing the finish line 9th out of 20 race cars in the Unlimited Class.
“It was fun and for a very good cause,” said Jefferies. “We could not have done it without the support of K&N, Damen and Casey Jefferies and all of our family and friends. We were there last year and the event raised more than $160,000. The bottom line is we are raising money and awareness for women who have breast cancer and a great hospital. We plan to be back again next year.”
The next race for the No.22 K&N Trophy Truck will be the Baja 1000 from November 19 -22.
