Powder Puff Race for the Cure

Lady Racers Take First Place in 1400 Class of 3rd Annual Powder Puff Race for the Cure

CHARLOTTE – (October 20, 2008) – KellyAnn Steinberger and a team of women off-roaders took first place in the 1400 Class during the 3rd annual Powder Puff Race for the Cure in Barstow, CA.  Steinberger, wife of Team General Tire driver Scott Steinberger of PCI Racing, competed on General Tire Grabber™ competition tires, and finished more than 30 minutes ahead of the second place team.

The Powder Puff Race for the Cure is presented by M.O.R.E. (Mohave Off-Road Enthusiast) and Royal Purple Synthetic Oils.  The event is open to women drivers and co-drivers only.    With nearly 200 starters, the event raised more than $100,000 dollars for Cedar Sinai Breast Cancer Research.
“Barstow is a very rough and rocky course,” Steinberger said.  “Our truck and the General Tire Grabbers took an amazing amount of punishment, and performed flawlessly.”
This is the second year Steinberger, a mother of four, has competed in this event.  She placed third last year.  The rest of the team, who also are members of PCI Racing, includes Jodie Chapman, Linda Surguine, Shelly Bursic, Julie Donahue and Kelly Biehl.
