Sad day indeed. I met him many years ago. And really enjoyed it . Very humble man .

 

This may be the final push I need to build a few of his cars for my shelf  .

One of the first and best pro stock stars I ever saw in the Glidden and Allen Pinto. Him and Etta were a great combination.

I worked at Dodge Motorsports from 1966 to 2007. In 1978 and 1979 I was running a race dyno doing development for Don's Plymouth Arrow.................what a blast. Making power runs to 10,000 rpm with a destroked 340"...............I think it was 288" cubic inch engines. Worked with him again around 2005-2006 when he was doing some development for us also. Great guy!

Sad news indeed. A gentleman racer and all round nice fellow. And at the top of the list of my favorite 70s/80s pro/stock pilots. Yet another hero gone. R.I.P. Bob.
