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. It’s entitled “How Far?” and was published on January 22, 2022. It is available on Amazon.com. Bob’s website was launched on February 10, 2022. Visit Bob’s Site to learn more about his life and his books.

Oh The Many Shirts I’ve Worn… And Jackets & Shoes Too!

February 8th, 2023

Yes, I’ve been away from blogging for a while. I could list all the interviews I’ve done in support of my book How Far? (and that does take up a lot of time and mental energy) or I could fabricate totally made-up stories about how far I’ve traveled recently, or maybe even abducted by aliens, […]

Life On The Road

December 27th, 2022

At the end of 2015 I officially retired from my life on the road. How long had I been traveling? Basically since I was in the womb. In the Wilber family, my father was always traveling thanks to his lifelong employment in baseball. My childhood was filled with annual trips to Spring Training (either on […]

Maybe The Grass Is Greener Over Here

December 12th, 2022

I know it’s been a while, if by “a while” you mean nearly a month, but when your PR agency is keeping such a constant flow of leads and introductions coming your way, and you’re scrambling to keep them all organized, answered, and scheduled, there’s not much time for blogging. I’ve got a break until […]

The Impact of Influence

November 14th, 2022

“Influencers.” It’s a word I don’t recall hearing up until a couple years ago. Somehow, some way, it appears that some individuals use social media to create their own sort of celebrity, and then they become famous for being famous, and what follows is that their content can influence perfect strangers. It’s the world we […]
