Vintage Race Photos and Video of “Baja Bob” Gordon

by Curtis Guise on December 11, 2017

Jim Ober from Trackside Photo sent me a selection of photos and notes of Baja Bob Gordon’s racing history to share with our viewers.  Bob was recently inducted into the Off Road Motorsports Hall of Fame earlier this year so I also included the ORMHOF video which includes allot of great vintage race footage from his racing career.

Visit tracksidephoto.com to see more great photos and buy some of your favorites.
