That's sharp!  Was that a cup car or Busch grand national?

I remember when Robbie died......a sad day.

He is one of those people where you wonder what might have been. I'd like to do his Crown Olds but have yet to find a good set of decals for it.

Yeah cup car. Moroso made his debut in Winston Cup in 1988 at Charlotte in the No. 47 Peak Antifreeze Chevrolet for Hendrick Motorsports, finishing 14th.

I remember him in the Crown Olds cup car.  Promising talent cut too short.

Clean neat work.....good stance too. I'd like to see it on my shelf!! 

I was at North Wilkesboro for his last race. I worked for First Union at the time and FU was a corp sponsor of NWB.  I was also doing licensing work in NASCAR for my company at the time so we watched from the infield, took photos and after the race stayed late taking to folks and dealing with license items.

I got home in Charlotte very late and just slept on the couch.  I was half awake and heard a radio report Rob had been killed in a wreck. I knew I was dreaming as I had just seen Rob 6 hours earlier. It turned out true sadly.......

When I got my 35mm film developed (remember that?) all my photos of Rob's car were cloudy and had a white glow around them. NO other photos had the same issues. Can't make this stuff up.....
