Thumbs up Bobby Warren on TV

One of the local stations has a segment called "Tarheel Traveler" that recognizes people from NC and they chose to put Bobby on the program. I'm not computer literate enough to post a link but if you go to
wral.com and scroll down to the Tarheel Traveler section (almost at the bottom) and click on "75 year old still pushing pedal to metal" , you'll find about a 3 minute segment.

That was cool, thanks for the linkage! You would have thought that Bobby raced a pro stocker that biffed the guardrail often though. To bad they didn't have good footage of his Firebird, racing for class at Indy, or some footage of his 69 Camaro at Bowling Green!

Someone should ask Bobby if he reads the class racer forum! I find it interesting, seeing who has time for all this internet stuff, as some don't waste time on it at all, while others are full blown texters, and facebookers.

That was a good segment.

Bobby did race a young guy, I beleive 19 year old, at a NHRA major event. There is an article either in the NHRA archives or Competition Plus. The story was that the race was close to Bobby's 70th birthday and Bobby beat the 19 year old for the race win. Back through the years Bobby Warren and Haywood Register had more national class records that I can remember. Some issues of National Dragster would have their name on a dozen or more class records.

A very deserving honor for a big part of Stock/Superstock drag racing history, not only in North Carolina but across the country.
