A truly inspirational lady.
Bekkah Doyle is a Ventura County local living in Ventura. She used a personal tragedy to inspire her to help people in need.
She told us how she got into demo derbies as a way to raise money. “I was actually involved in a bad car accident in 2019. A car rear ended me on the 101 at 50mph freeway while I was stopped in traffic, which left me with very crippling PTSD in cars. Now I drive in demo derbies as my way of overcoming my PTSD and becoming comfortable in cars again. My mom took me to the Ventura Raceway demo derby at a very young age and it became a lifelong dream for me to drive in it one day. Now that I have finally made that dream a reality. I use my demo derby cars to help others.”
Bekkah went on to say “On Oct 9th I will be driving in an all Women’s Demolition Derby for Cancer at Irwindale Speedway, the derby is composed of female drivers from all over Southern California representing their hometowns. I’m the lone representative so far for Ventura County (I actually just drove at the recent demo derby at Ventura Raceway as the only female driver). I want to raise as much money as I possibly can so I’ve decided to sell spots on my car for people to put the names of loved one they have lost to cancer or in support of those currently battle cancel. 50% of all proceeds will be donated directly to charity. I’d love to be able to raise a significant amount to donate while also giving people a way to honor their loved ones.”
