Cowboy Bob Kelly competing in a rodeo, riding a bull in 1956. Bull's name "whirlwind," he was a small but quick spinning bull, he would come out spin to the right then reverse and go left. This is the first bull I was able to make the whistle on. Scored an 86. I'll never forget that ride or that bull.The cowboy to the far left, on the back of the chutes, is my lifelong best buddy Jerry Ginder, He taught me how to ride and also pulled the rope for me that day. Jerry was one of the best bull riders I ever saw.

Cowboy Bob receiving the checkered flag from flagman, Charlie Merrill, for one of his many wins at Mobile International Speedway, He also had wins at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Fl. and Pelican Moter Speedway in Baton Rouge, La. Bob won his first race in a car built and prepared for racing by Richard Kennedy of Mobile, Alabama. His last win was in a car built by Rex Brooks of Pensacola, Florida. Two of the very best, when it came to setting a car up to handle on a race track. Bob says "They both could make my car run like a rocketship. I am very lucky to have had them both as my car builders then, and my FRIENDS today".
Rex Brooks passed away and is buried next door to Five Flags Speedyway in Pensacola, Florida. "Rest In Peace My Friend"

Not only was Cowboy Bob good at riding bulls and driving a stock car, he was also an excellent professional wrestler, as you will see just ahead.
