Bob’s love for racing began at age ten while he hung
out in the pits at Laguna Seca watching his parents work
as part of the pit crew for a Shelby Cobra. In high school
Bob enjoyed racing go-carts, building a dune buggy with
his dad and discovering photography. He especially enjoyed
photographing racecars and motocross. Now as a 50-something
retired marathoner Bob is excited to be the team
photographer and returning to his passion for photography
and fast cars.
