2012-13 Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Development Driver
I started racing when I was 13 years old trying to find anything other than a stick and ball sport to play. After wrecking my fathers quad into too many trees he reached out to my uncle and cousin who had raced go-karts for almost 20 years. I think looking back on it, I think my Dad thought I'd see the speed and my uncle would try to wreck me a couple times and I'd be done with it. He wasn't an adrenaline junky like I was. Shortly after finishing on the podium in my first race in Atwater, CA at our local track and wadding up a couple chassis into balls of scrap metal we started traveling. Dad and I went all out on our program traveling all over the USA from Seattle, to LA, to Wisconsin, to Florida, racing 4 classes a day, 3 days every weekend we could. We were hooked. We raced across several forms of motorsports from that time on. When I was accepted into a NASCAR Development Program, prior to RCR, we were required to compete and win in multiple 4 wheel disciplines. I competed, and won, in non-suspended open wheels (go-karts), suspended open wheel wing and non-wing (Formula Ford), open wheel circle track on dirt and pavement (Focus Midgets/non-wing sprint cars), open wheel stock cars (Modifieds), and closed wheel full size stock cars (Late models/NASCAR K&N pro series). I've now expanded that to off road truck racing and continue to sharpen my skills and form across all platforms, but I do believe off road has been the ultimate test of my mind and resolve. You have to be half ass crazy to throw trucks off jumps with more likelihood to incinerate what you spent your lifesavings on because you, "love it". We're all crazy. To be honest, that's not even the reason why I race. Yea I am an adrenaline junky through and through, but being around people who are the same as me, that's what I love the most about TORC and racing. Waking up at 6 am and fixing the same stuff until 2 am that we show up to break every weekend with everyone a love. That's probably my favorite part.
After winning two national championships, Bobby began to explore opportunities to race at a higher level, NASCAR. Bobby tired out for a NASCAR driver development team and out 746 candidates from 4 continents, Bobby made the final 6 that were chosen for the team.
It was this success that drove bobby to continue the pursuit of his dream; to win in multiple racing series. Bobby was then signed to race with Neil Porter in the Formula Ford, SCCA’s San Francisco Region. Bobby would eventually capture Rookie of the Year and earn the championship in his year in the series.
The 2011 racing season saw Bobby race Grand American Modifieds where he would earn 3 wins, one pole, and 13 top ten finishes.

Racing: "It's all I've ever known. I love to compete, I love to finish first. From drinking glasses of milk to running to the car. Short course is the ultimate competition, the ultimate race, and it's all I know how to do."
