Robert Collid "Bob" Salem

1932 - 2011


Bob Salem of Oberlin, Kansas raced each of the cars on this web page at Oakley, Kansas although the photo above was actually taken at Larned, Kansas in 1958.  By the time Salem raced this car at Oakley in 1960, it was painted bright red and renumbered “22” – Bob Salem collection

It is hard to tell from these photos but this car carried the number 94.  Click your mouse on the photo above to see another photo of this car after Salem had tangled with a light pole – Bob Salem collection







Bob Salem drove this car in 1964.  The #98 in the background at right was driven by Don Spreier and the #10 parked next to Spreier’s car was a Cobra Ford driven by Leland Salmans – Duane Burnes photo for the Roger Burnett collection
