An all ladies race at Barstow, California raised money netted close to $100,000 for the
Women’s Cancer Research Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The Powder
Puff Race for the Cure is an annual hard core off-road racing event where all
proceeds benefit the institute.
The goal is to race for three hours and finish as many laps as possible.

Kyndal Hays was the driver for Patelli Motorsports, her co-driver was Heather
Hays. “Kydal had a baby boy only five days before the race,” said Patelli
Motorsports owner Jim Patelli. “A lot of ladies at the race were surprised to
see her there and told her she must be crazy. She drove our 1957 Chevrolet sixty
miles and three laps to raise money for cancer research.”
Patelli calls his 1957 Chevy, The Legend. “We’ve run that car at the Baja 1000
and SCORE races,” he said. “We also use K&N Engineering products. We raced in
Pahrump, Nevada and were stuck in the silt for four hours. Our car was a mess
and covered with the mud and the silt. When we looked at the engine it was
still running clean thanks to K&N.”
The Legend also finished in second place out of 130 entries at the Powder Puff
Race. “It was not about winning,” said Patelli. “It was for a good cause.”
