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.
