He was a legend in the Ford world for building some amazing racing engines.

One of the greatest engine builder's of all time. At least he got to know first hand his induction into the NASCAR Hall of Fame. God Speed Robert.

I enjoyed watching his accomplishments in the 1990's with Allison, Jarret and Irvan. It's sad to watch the video and see how much the disease ravaged his appearance.

I was hoping NASCAR would have a special induction ceremony for him. I am sure the other people nominated would not have minded in the least.

Tragic. He was an absolute legend and an immeasurable asset to the Ford community.
