In a star-studded career that spanned more than 25 years in the class, Glidden won 85 events and 10 season championships and was voted No. 4 on the list of Top 50 racers from NHRA's first 50 years in 2000.

This has been a well kept secret cuz just yesterday I went looking for info on him and found nothing online? Just did another search and found many pages about his death. Kinda looks like bad news travels fast, hey!

RIP Bob!
