Looks like my previous comment got chopped a bit.. Yes, Bob knew Both Don and Fritz Wilson well. He mentioned their name quite often and his stories were great stuff! I was very happy to get to know Bob much better after I joined the club with my eldest son Scott who raced the 88 Mod Coupe the past 3 seasons. As I stated above the last race was a good one and Bob finished strong, but it was tough watching him pull off the track, knowing it was the last time. Thanks for the comment

and was one of the top shoes in the western region. Bob talked about the Wilsons and the Carelli`s a lot and to listen to his story recall was always a treat!!.. The picture posted is of Bob sitting in Miss Vicky in the staging area at Big Country Spdwy prior to the Main Event.It was a bitter sweet nite

I wonder if Bob knew my uncles, Don and Fritz Wilson? I moved away from the colorado area long before I had the chance to really see them race. I'm sure Bob will be missed my many people. It's good to see the old guys still out there doing their thing. I enjoyed your posting, Mike.. thanks!
