A success on the track and in the business world, Bob Woodhouse’s early love affair with the automobile led him to choose a career with Ford Motor Company over teaching. The Montana native left Ford and ran a chain of dealerships rooted in Blair. Woodhouse began a successful SCCA career behind the wheel in the 1970s, winning championships in regional and divisional series. In 2006, at the age of 60, Woodhouse took a podium finish in the SPEED World Challenge event at Sebring International Raceway, and finished sixth in the driver standings while still running his dealerships full time. His Woodhouse Performance team claimed three victories in the SPEED World Challenge series with veteran driver Tommy Archer in 2008. He now heads a group working to elevate the status of the SCCA Pro Racing World Challenge.
