FIGHTING CANCER AND BREAKING RECORDS: SEATTLE LOCAL, STEVE HUFF MOTORSPORTS TO MAKE AN APPEARANCE AT NHRA NORTHWEST NATIONALS FOR A WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT
Steve Huff Motorsports (SeaTac, WA) set a 202.82mph new World Record in the Faster Than Cancer Electric Dragster at Sonoma Raceway during the Holley High Voltage Experience event earlier this month. Now the team returns to their home track, Pacific Raceways, as part of the NHRA Northwest Nationals event. This will be the Faster Than Cancer Electric Drag Racing teams’ 4th appearance in the NHRA National series.
Steve Huff Motorsports, Team Carrell, Huff & Barger, now racing as the Faster Than Cancer Foundation made history in 2020 when they became the first ever electric car to break the 200mph barrier in the ¼ mile. Later that year, Steve Huff was diagnosed with Stage 4 metastatic upper tract urothelial cancer. Steve receives care through the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and UW Medical Center. Living with a Cancer Diagnosis, Steve continues his mission to give back to the community and inspire the next generation of racers and innovators.
Steve says, “The #1 thing someone with cancer wants is to forget they have cancer. When I put on my helmet, I forget about cancer for that moment in time. Getting to bring that energy and excitement to kids in the schools we visit, and to my fellow cancer fighters, is what keeps me going.”
Look for the Faster Than Cancer Electric Dragster at Pacific Raceways July 29 – 31st for the NHRA Flav-R-Pac Northwest Nationals Pep Boys Electric Exhibition.
