Robby and his family met Travis and the team in a very unique way. In the summer of ’17 their daughters’ go kart race in Ohio was rained out and they happened to drive through the parking lot of Eldora Speedway, where Travis and his team were completing maintenance on the car after a speedweek show. Robby & his family introduced themselves and Travis was happy to show them through the trailer & even had the girls sit in the car to get their pictures taken. Ever since then Robby & his family have been huge supporters of Philo Motorsports and they have all become great friends with all members of the team. Robby joined the crew towards the end of the 2017 season and has been a great hand. He plans on working on the Philo Motorsports crew in 2018 for as many shows as his schedule allows.
