Our Mission

Bobby Parker

Bobby Parker proved to be one of the most versatile race car drivers to ever hail from the state of Nebraska. He started his career driving his father’s jalopy at Playland Speedway Park in Council Bluffs, Iowa, in 1949 and from there went on to midgets, where he drove for such car owners as Les Vaughn, Otto Ramer, Art Jacobson and Roy Thomas. Parker won midget races in Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Kansas, Missouri and several other States. It is estimated that he won close to 300 midget features. He was a two-time champion of Sunset Speedway’s modified division, winning titles in 1957 and 1958 driving for Ed Murcek. Parker was inducted into the Nebraska Auto Racing Hall of Fame in 2000.
