Bob Glidden Returns

Quote from Billy Glidden

Quote:
Hello folks, I had written a few days ago, that Dad may be at the race in Vegas? Well it looks like he will be coming out, and in fact racing the grand am of Kenny Perry. This has been made possible by the work and efforts of people behind the scenes, which no doubt include Mel, and a few sponsors. It actually does not pay Dad for time, just to get him there, so obviously he is excited about racing once again! Anyone who wants to see this old mad dog shoe one down the track again, had better get out there, because lord knows when the stars alighn again to make this happen! Thanks, BG
This will be at the PSCA Super Nationals in Las Vegas Nov 20th-23rd. The last time Bob Drove was 2006 in Bradenton. He drove Kenny Perry's Ford powered Grand Am to win the 10.5 Outlaw class. He beat Billy Glidden in the semi's. It will be great to see the two of them racing together again!!! Billy will be driving the 2006 Pontiac GTO with the small block Ford in it.

Good Stuff thanks. I hope Ford gets back into pro-stock pretty soon and I think Bob and Billy have shown they can make a Ford run!

Maybe, with Brian Wolf heading up Ford Racing now, I think we have a better chance than ever.
