good story JC bobby was known to get in the middle of his fans and just connect, in fact he still does it now-- he and Donnie will make appearances in some of the most unusual places,especially where little fans are at

J.C., great story! I remember one time at Michigan I had a pit pass and the cars were being pushed out in a qualifying line. I was sitting on the pit wall with my wife Jill kinda off by ourselves so we wouldn't get in the way. Next thing we knew Bobby sat next to us. I was so stunned I didn't say anything and after a couple of minutes he was surrounded by people. We got up and moved and I look back on it as a missed opportunity to chat with a great driver. Just the 3 of us for a couple of minutes. He seems to be true professional from what I saw.Pete
