Bobby was a "low buck" WOO driver as he competed against Steve Kinser, Sammy Swindell, Doug wolfgang and other great wing drivers of his time. The Bandit was fun to watch and once ran 30 laps side by side with Steve Kinser, he on the bottom and Steve on the top, at Eldora. It was an awesome show. He won the Knoxville Nationals and a lot of other races and used an old horse trailer to haul his cars around the countery for many years. He owned a little go cart track near his shop in PA and fans came by often to visit. He was a special driver who retired too soon in my eyes.

Bobby Allen (born December 28, 1943) is an American racecar driver known for racing winged sprint cars. He currently owns Shark Racing, a World of Outlaws sprint car team that fields two cars driven by his son Jacob Allen and his grandson Logan Schuchart.

Allen was born to Joe and Jane Allen in Daytona, Florida. His father had driven stock cars with NASCAR during its early years before becoming a pilot and moving the family to Miami. In his teenage years, Allen had dreamed of driving at the Indianapolis 500.

Allen's first racing experience came in Florida at twelve years old in half midgets, and he soon moved up into kart racing. In 1960, he won the World Champion karting event in Nassau, Bahamas, organized by the Go Kart Club of America.[1][2] The following year in 1961, he won the 100cc karting World Championship in Milan, Italy

In the early 1960s, Allen raced modified and supermodified racecars in Florida. In the mid-1960s, he moved north and settled in Hanover, Pennsylvania. As Allen convinced several other out-of-state drivers to move north to join him, they became known as the "Hanover Gang".

Allen built his first sprint car in 1968. He claims over 276 sprint car wins across numerous tracks and series.[4] He was a charter member of the World of Outlaws sprint car series when it debuted in 1978, and finished third in the point standings that inaugural year. He recorded 25 wins in that series, joining fewer than two dozen drivers in Outlaws history who have achieved 25 or more wins. He can also claim 46 wins in the All Star Circuit of Champions, putting him in the top 10 all-time in that series.
