Our Mission

Bob Burdick

Bob Burdick started out as a motorcycle racer who switched to cars at a young age. Driving on the IMCA Late Model circuit with one of the first factory Ford efforts, he was a constant force to be reckoned with. From 1955 through 1958, Burdick won over 40 races at every major State Fair that IMCA sanctioned. He turned his attention to NASCAR in 1960, winning the pole position on his first trip to the tough Darlington (S.C.) Raceway. Burdick was also a front-runner in both the 1960 and 1961 Daytona 500s. In 1961, he scored his biggest victory by winning the Atlanta (Ga.) 500. In all of his major wins, his father, Roy, a 1998 Nebraska Auto Racing Hall of Fame inductee, was his car owner. Bob was inducted in the Nebraska Auto Racing Hall of Fame in 2000.
