Bob “The Weatherman” Steinberger known as the voice of desert racing, will return to The Mint 400, where he first began providing communications. At the 1974 Mint 400, Bob put communications in the vehicles of Bill Stroppe, Joe MacPherson and Walker Evans. He sent up three weather balloons with five hundred feet of coax attached and the first successful radio relay from a pit was made. It is believed that it was Joe MacPherson who couldn’t remember his name, so he dubbed him “Weatherman” on the radio. The rest is history and Bob’s iconic status has been reached through nearly half a century of work with the communications company he founded, PCI Race Radios.
