    This is happening much to often lately, another true legend of drag racing gone. I saw Bobby and Ruth at Ed Mabrys funeral several months back and was looking forward to seeing him in Dec. at our annual Ol' Drag Geezers Reunion. I took this picture of Bobby & Ruth at the TTA race in 2009.

    Rest in peace Bobby.

    Very bad news and prayers go out to Ruth and relatives. Bobby was a regular at the Gulf Freeway strip in Houston in the 60's and I booked him at all out big events. A first class guy and he will be missed by all who knew him.
     
  24. What a shock for me...Just got off the phone with Don Ross..seems like this was a result of his heart surgery two days ago and complications set in...We will be posting funeral details here for every one that wants to Attend..
