Today let's please collectively pay our sincere respects to the recently deceased Bob Glidden. A drag racer with a career that's spanned more than a quarter of a century, an impressive win record of no less than 85 major event victories, and an amazing total of 10 season championships. The Whiteland, Indiana, native was undeniably the most successful Ford "blue oval" force in the brutally competitive Pro Stock category (arguably the most competitive of all drag racing's professional categories).  The amply accomplished Drag Racing Hall of Fame inductee was also known as being one of the most "fan friendly" of personalities to be found in the pits at NHRA national events. Bob genuinely appreciated all the fans and folks who came out to watch the races. Bob Glidden was 73 years old. Our heartfelt condolences go out to surviving wife Etta, and sons Billy and Rusty.

 

 

Being that I'm a member of the "T-Bird club", I thought I'd post this classic image in memory of Bob Glidden.
