Bobby is a class act. He is a nice guy and a great driver. I remember Junior saying in his book that Bobby is one cool guy and also a guy that the young drivers can go to for advice. He just goes about his business and like the man said in the post above he does it without any controversy. I have never heard a bad word about him EVER!
