Bob started racing in 1966 in the G/Gas Class at Coles County Dragway because he wanted to.  He lost his first race with a '49 Ford Pickup with a 239 cu. in. Flat Head. 

Career highlights include 5 Track Championships in '88, '89, '01, '08 and '11, E.T. S/Pro Champion at Indy in '08.

The thrill of racing for Bob is that it's better than sex!  His most exciting racing moment was winning E.T. Finals S/Pro at Indy in '08 of which he's most proud.

Bob's racing hero is himself!

Of racing, Bob says, "It ain't as easy as it looks!".
