Bob Nordskog was a mechanical engineer by trade. He was also an offshore power boat racer and an airline equipment mogul. Bob started out racing at the dry lakes, and he set a speed record of 125 MPH at Muroc Dry Lake with his Model T. Bob's biggest passion though was offshore powerboat racing, a sport he started practicing at age 46. Bob's final victory came at age 79, just one month prior to his 1992 death, when he averaged a speed of 93 MPH in his 40-foot Fountain, the Powerboat Magazine Special.
