Ryan my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I never got the pleasure to become as close to Bob James as most of you got too but these past few months I did really get to sit down and talk with him he is an awesome person , not only a great father to his kid(s) and grandchildren, but also a great friend to many on and off the track he will be greatly missed by many ... R.I.P Bob James

Hello all,

Its RB from the OC

I made an announcement on Saturday about a Bob James memorial Race next year
(pretty much the hardest thing I have done , EVER)

Jeremy and I both agree that we will be holding this event sooner rather then later. Myself or Fezz will post the date and time within the next few days.

For those of you not at the Gyro Race

ALL the proceeds from the "Bob James Memorial Race"
will go to the James family to set up collage funds for Bobs grand children.

Over the last few months I don't think I ever saw Bob Not carrying his grandson and looking like a proud papa with a big ol smile on his face... So I believe this is what he would want so please get the word out!

We are also taking donations at the track for the James family and will be doing so for the next several weeks to help with any immediate costs.

Bob will be missed by all of us for sure so please join me in helping to support Ryan and the rest of the James Family

Peace

RB

Working on that right now, Billy. Thanks for asking!

UPDATE: Anyone who would like to donate to the fund

can send it to the Banzai PayPal and we will give ALL

donations to the James family. We will also ask Robert,

the owner of OCRC, to verify all donations have been given

to the family from the PayPal account by having him review

the payment account.

You can send the donation to: [email protected]

Please mark for " James Family".

THANK YOU ALL!

My only advice to those who have called the last couple of days
has been to do whatever it is you think Bob would want you to do.
So, I'm going to follow my own advice, and post the results from
the Gyro Race at OCRC. This one's for you Bob-O !

TQ and 1st Chris Wesson
5th Chuck Fowler

2nd Danny Stojakovic

St. Buggy

Thanks to all the Team guys and customers! Good job!!

Also, thanks to Robert and Gyro Hobbies for a great race.

Jeremy for his awesome announcing.

I won a Lunsford pit towel, well, it was actually Scott's ticket,
but I got the prize!!

The T-Shirts were REALLY nice. Robert always goes the extra
mile for us racers. Thanks!

If I missed anybody, please feel free to post.
