Team Courage Racing, Hall Ass Racing, and Hooters Join Forces

Washington, D.C., September 26, 2011 – Michele Martineau of Team Courage Racing and Emme Hall of Hall Ass Racing are proud to announce their alliance with West Coast Hooters as they raise funds for Cedars-Sinai Breast Cancer Research Center in association with MORE’s Royal Purple Synthetic Oil’s 6th Annual Powder Puff Race for the Cure October 7-8 in Barstow, CA.


Simply visit or to print out a flyer.  Bring it to Hooters of Rancho Bernardo at 16911 West Bernardo Drive, San Diego, CA 92127 on Monday October 3rd from 6-9pm, and West Coast Hooters will donate 20% of your tab to Cedars-Sinai.  Please note that this offer is valid ONLY at the Rancho Bernardo location.


Each year the Powder Puff raises more than $100,000 to support the Cedars-Sinai Breast Cancer Research Center. Race organizers expect more than 75 teams and 25,000 spectators. Competitors run the gamut from first-time drivers to professional racers with many podium finishes in both national and international races.  The only requirement is that drivers and co-drivers be female.


“Don’t let the term Powder Puff fool you,” said Hall Ass driver Emme Hall. “These ladies drive just as aggressively as the men. We got fourth in class in 2009, second in class last year and I’m gunning for first this year.”
