Corona, California (September 15th, 2009) – Join the Woman of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) in the fight for the cure for breast cancer on October 10th at the 2009 4th Annual MORE Powder Puff Race for the Cure. One in every eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their life. Over 200,000 US women will be diagnosed this year. 40,000 will not survive. Cedar Sinai Women’s Cancer Research Center is fighting to find a cure for this horrible disease that affects so many people.

The MORE Powder Puff Race for the Cure is an all female off road race held in the desert of Barstow, CA put on by the great people at MORE (Mojave Off Road Enthusiasts). Women will come together from around the country to “race for the cure” and help to raise money for the Cedar Sinai Women’s Cancer Research Center. Last year’s event raised over $115,000 with 186 teams competing. All proceeds and contributions go directly to the center and are completely tax deductible.

The Women of LORRS is a five vehicle off road racing team comprised of Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series technical Inspection and on-track support personnel, employees and their family members. Joining Sherry Vanillo and daughters Crystal and Tanya in the Class 1 North American Off Road Truck are the Class 10 Buggy of Poppy Perfect, the Class 5 Unlimited of Kristina Dague, Class 9 buggy campaigned by Paula MacDonald and Andi Wagner and the UTV of Jeanette Sappington.

In addition to the support of Lucas Oil Products, the team has received generous contributions from Bully Dog Technologies, Ntensetees, RockStar Energy Drink, Lawson Products, and Symons Safety. Through their association with the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, the team has also made arrangements for the series safety team as well as the series Toyota support vehicles to be on-site throughout the race course to assist all participants.
