Bob was a great guy and I met him through his bicycle shop. Bought all my bikes from him and had the privilege to watch him race recently at Laguna.
His positive attitude and knowledge will be missed.

In my first season I learned alot from bob. He was one of many of my mentor’s going through my first year back to racing.
His smile. His crew. His team are all in my heart.

Hello Racing Community,

This is Bobcat’s nephew. Thank you so much for your kind words. Bobby absolutely loved getting out on the track as much as possible and all the camaraderie he felt there. Since before he could even drive all he ever wanted to do was go fast, whether it was a bike, Skis, motorcycle, etc.. Getting out on the track made his childhood dream become a reality. Funny story: growing up my sister and I couldn’t stand watching TV at Bobby’s house, because the only thing he had to watch were in car videos of him racing!

We are deeply saddened by his death, but glad he lived a fulfilling life. We do not have a date for the celebration of life yet, but more information will follow. If anyone has any photos/videos of Bobby we would love it if you would share them. Please email them to Thank you!

I was pitted next to him during the final event at Thunderhill, where he earned six flags for six races. I can see him now waving those flags. It was a moment that few have ever experienced. Proud to have known him.

I just heard of the very sad news. I feel truly privileged to have raced with him, learned from him, and to have called him my friend. He was a driver’s driver that you could always trust to do the right thing, on track. I will miss him greatly. RIP Bob.

I knew Bob since High School and he was the best friend I ever had. We raced each other since the first day we had our drivers license’s. He is the reason I made it to racing in SCCA and we had some epic battles on the racetrack. Thank you SCCA. And thank you Bob for all of the awesome memories.💖💖
