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.
