Bob & #43 Reunion - Sears Point 2009

 Bob Dye Reunited with His Old Race Car

The Reunion

After Bob and I connected, it was only natural to reunie Bob with his car. Bob last saw #43 in 1987, when Bob drove #43 in the Monterey Historics. Bob lives in Arizona now, and made the trip to Sears Point to watch me race at a Classic Sports Car Group (CSGR) race at Sears Point. #43 apparently did not like me driving the car when Bob was around - the fuel injected system crapped out on me, so I raced very little. As the photos below show, Bob and I had a great time, and some of Bob's old race mates showed up to greet him and chat about old times.

Bob is a great guy, and a great story teller. Bob is also very generous - he gave me all the trophies and a bunch of other stuff related to #43. My goal is to get him behind the wheel for a race, maybe an Enduro where we could run the car as a team.

If you have any 1967 - 1972 race results reflecting Bob Dye, please drop me a line. I would really like to reflect as many of his races as possible.
