Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Robert Tomlinson following his passing.
Robert began his racing career in the 1980s and was a familiar face at Speedway 660 for the last 26 years. Robert was in the first Pro Stock race when the track opened in July 1994, finishing second on Opening Night. Tomlinson finished fourth in the RE/MAX East Coast Elite Pro Stock division in 2019, capping off the year in last month’s McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250 with a 14th place finish.
Regardless how his night was at the track, Robert would meet you with a big smile and was always willing to do some bench racing. The racing community has lost one of it’s nicest gentleman racers with Robert Tomlinson’s passing. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and crew at this time.
