Bob Wilber grew up aspiring to follow in his father’s baseball footsteps, and while he was able to secure a full college scholarship and later spend parts of six years in professional ball, as a player, coach, and scout, his mother’s writing, communications, and public relations skills were what eventually defined his career. After a successful and adventurous sports-marketing trek through the sports-apparel business, agency work, and professional indoor soccer, he saw his first drag race as he closed in on his 40th birthday. Little did he know that he’d go on to spend 20 consecutive years as a team manager and PR representative for Del Worsham and then Tim Wilkerson, two of the most popular Funny Car drivers on the NHRA tour. At the conclusion of the 2015 season, Bob ended his drag racing run in order to take on an important personal assignment. Over the course of 2016 he wrote his autobiography, entitled “Bats, Balls, & Burnouts.” It was released in late May, 2017 and is available on Amazon.com and other major online book retailers, in both printed and digital formats. For the last year, Bob has been writing a new book, in the “historical fiction” genre, and it is expected to be published in mid-2021. The working title is “How Far?” It will be available on all major book-selling platforms.

Friends… Priceless!

April 29th, 2021

Greetings all! Today’s collaboration is about one of my favorite subjects. It’s about friends. When anyone we know asks us about living in Minnesota, and questions our sanity in terms of the stout winters we have here, we just say “This is our home now. We made the best friends we’ve ever had here. It’s […]

We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Deadlines!

April 23rd, 2021

Hey there, everyone. Guess what happened this week? Well, Elon Werner and I have a lot of things in common, including our PR careers, our love of sports, and our mutual sense of sarcastic humor. This week, we both completely zoned out on the fact yesterday was Thursday. Sometime around 8:00 pm, it occurred to […]

The Art of Photography

Hey everyone. BW here. I just got home on this Thursday afternoon from my appointment to receive Pfizer vaccine shot #2. Had to drive back up to Fridley to get it, but the process was even smoother than it was for the first shot. Way more people getting the second one, so that eliminates one […]
