Farewell to our Weatherman: Bob Introne Passes Away

An Unexpected Loss Long-time NER member, well known throughout the region, Bob Introne passed away unexpectedly while traveling on Monday, October 11, 2021. A SCCA member for over 40 years, Bob started flagging turns in the 1970's. He quickly fell in love with SCCA motorsports and recruited many of his friends, establishing a corner working crew called The Road Runners. This team of flaggers became famous in the 70's throughout the St. Louis region, slapping their stickers on cars that visited their stations. He eventually obtained his competition license in a SRF, then moved from the corners to race control as a steward.

But his impact on the region extended far beyond whether drivers would race on wet or dry tires. Leadership was at his core. And through the decades, he stepped up to guide the direction and promote the growth of the [...]
