  • St. Louis, MO-IL (1888PressRelease) June 20, 2015 - To test the mettle of his industry-leading technology, Richard Schneider, president of Antennas Direct (, is jumping into a car race on America's Mother Road, Route 66. Schneider has entered his 1969 Mercedes 280SL into this year's The Great Race (, an annual event that brings together car enthusiasts from around the world. Schneider, accompanied by the Antennas Direct tour bus, plans to stop at locations along race tour to test the reception of some of his over-the-air technology and report findings.

    "This combines the two things I love the most - well-designed cars and well-designed antennas," says Schneider. "Despite all of the cord cutting trends, not enough Americans know that the best programming is free and over-the-air."

    This year, The Great Race goes from Kirkwood, Mo. to Santa Monica, Ca. and stops at some of the most storied locations in the country. Schneider plans to pack four Antennas Direct models - ClearStream Db8e, C2V and the new, indoor Eclipse, and will be giving away 200 antennas along the way.
