Tributes to Bobby East’s Death
What pisses me off about the suspect stabbing bobby east the same nite before bobby this dude stabbed a 76 yr old man they suspect is a transient and is wanted for parole violations makes me even angrier
No one should experience homelessness. No one whose substance use becomes a problem should face incarceration as the community’s “solution.” No one should end up stabbed to death at the 76. Details of the last years of Bobby East’s life reflect poorly on all of us, not on him.

There was a stretch where Bobby East was so dominant at IRP, that everyone knew showing up you were racing for second. One of the best to ever do it on the pavement. Thoughts are with Bob, Janice, and the rest of the East family.

A friend of mine, Noyce Naylor, had introduced me to Bob and Bobby East at the 2004 Turkey Night Grand Prix at Irwindale Speedway. Noyce had helped Bob during his days with CRA. Here is a photo of Noyce, Bob, and Bobby from that day.
