Bob Chambers is in his second season with GAINSCO/Bob Stallings Racing as the team’s truck driver and also serves as a race weekend tire assistant. He has worked in sports car racing since debuting with Team Corvette at the 1999 Rolex 24 At Daytona, the year after he retired from the Indianapolis Fire Department.
He most recently worked with Riley Technologies and was part of that team’s GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series championship effort in 2005 with SunTrust Racing, a winning season that also produced a victory in that year’s Rolex 24 At Daytona. Prior to that, he worked as a truck driver and fueler on the factory GM Cadillac LMP program that raced at Le Mans in 2000.
Personal: Married to Carolyn for 46 years and the couple has two grown children… First race ever attended was the 1955 Indianapolis 500 at the age of nine.
