Bobby Gerhart Racing Up For Sale

Bobby Gerhart has put his ARCA team up for sale, as it has been listed in the classifieds section of the ARCA Racing website. Gerhart has won 8 of the season opening Daytona races in ARCA since 1999, and has a few Nationwide/Sprint Cup starts to his name.

Gerhart, as per Racing Reference, has had 250 ARCA starts over the years with 9 victories, 51 top fives, and 103 top tens. This season had been somewhat of a struggle for Gerhart, with both of his starts this season being DNFs.

Gerhart also attempted both Nationwide plate races this season, missing Daytona and wrecking out at Talladega. He ran in 24 Cup races from 1983-1992, all but his first two for his own team, with an average finish of 30th. He also competed in the first season of the NASCAR Camping World Truck series, running 3 races, all for his own team.

It’s unknown exactly what is going to happen to the team. As the ad says, Gerhart is willing to sell the team in pieces…… which is probably what will happen. The 54 year old, unless hired by the new team, is likely to retire, as he has shown he can only win one race a year in the lowest series of national touring stock car racing. It has been 12 years since his lone victory at a track not named Daytona…… and that was Talladega.

It’s unknown if the sale also includes BGR’s Nationwide cars, or if BGR even has a Nationwide car left to sell after wrecking one earlier this season.
