One tough and talented racer that dominated the class for a long time. Godspeed Bob.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

I used to see him at SIR pretty regularly, unlike a lot of the Pro Stock teams, his pit area was always ALL business, no hot chicks in halter tops, no dilettantes or hangers on, and he was always thrashing, a real "racers racer". Hard-core. I remember him being interviewed in Car Craft in the seventies when he was racing Clevelands, they were looking around and noticed he didn't have any engine stands, he said he wouldn't use them because hanging the block by the bellhousing flange distorted the back two bores, he said he always assembled his engines on top of an old tire. Like I said, HARD-CORE.
