Bobby Pecoy started riding motorcycles at five years old. Although he had an extreme love for the sport, his parents forbid him to race. Plenty of parents worry themselves sick over the potential dangers of racing, and his were no exception. So, like many youth, Bobby snuck the motorcycle out of the garage to take it to the local tracks to ride.

Although many of Bobby's friends were racing when he was young, his parents remained adamant, and said as long as he lived with them he could not race. Then once Bobby did move out, he found out quickly that he could not afford the time to race since he had to get a career started. His dreams of becoming a racer were put on hold for 15 years until he finally had the time to try his luck at racing go-karts. "I raced go-karts for three years", says Bobby, "until my wife and I had our first child and that put an end to the go-kart racing."

Child rearing kept him off the tracks for several years, but then he started racing some grand prix events on a motocross bike and doing fairly well against guy's his age and even younger. Bobby says, "I found myself thinking I might be pretty good at this racing stuff again. Then I noticed Rhino's racing. I thought that looked fun so I tried it and it was a blast. I then went to a CORR race in Pomona and saw the Pro Buggies Race and I thought that was all about me! The first full season of racing the Unlimited / Pro Buggy I was on the podium six times and brought home three first place trophy's. Wooo Hooo!!"

At long last, Bobby is fulfilling his dream, and races in the M4SX series, and the Lucas Oil Off Road Series. He drives a self sponsored # 973 Pro Buggy, and his recent win at the LOORS event in Surprize, Arizona was over the top. "Wire to Wire, led the entire race by a long shot," stated Bobby. "For me in the drivers seat at the time it was kind of boring, all by myself with no one to race with. Then I looked back to see the excitement of the team, family and sponsors and it was incredible."

Bobby developed a partnership with K&N during one of the early Lucas Oil races and says the filters keep the air in his race car breathing clean, and the oil running pure.
