They are 2 teams divided on the track, but 8 women strongly united in raising awareness for breast cancer research, treatment and honoring those unable to see their accomplishments.
“I’m racing in remembrance of my aunt Rosie and cousin Lynn who lost their lives to breast cancer and for all those who are still fighting. Let’s crush this nasty disease,” said Shannin Jacobazzi, the only rookie in this year’s race.
Her fellow Destroyer, Jenny Harvel wants to honor those who have won the battle against cancer and contribute towards finding a cure to help a new generation of women. “I pray there is a cure that ends cancer forever so my daughter Charlotte, and everyone else we love, never has to endure that diagnosis,” said Harvel.
Monikka Shearer exclaimed that Team Demo “is not just a man’s sport” and women have “just as much balls” to race as men. Indeed they do as proven by 2015 Destroyer driver Jody Huffmaster.
“I’m racing for Jody who is a two-time cancer survivor and everyone else who has crushed breast cancer,” said Amber Domrose, one of Huffmaster’s teammates from that race. “I’m racing for Jody kicking cancer’s [expletive],” added Shearer.
