Bob McCoy began his racing career at Balboa Stadium in San Diego,California driving jalopies in his teen years. He later went on to drive Midgets and then sprint cars before signing a contract to drive in the Indianapolis 500 in the late ’60s. He was critically injured and was unable to drive the Joe Hunt Magneto car at the Indy 500 as planned.

Bob has had other exotic careers such as wild animal taming and rodeo bronc riding, but is most famous for his abilities as a racecar driver and artist. McCoy’s art can be found in homes and offices all around the world. As a former racecar driver, Bob McCoy works from experience. “Whenever I draw a scene from an early ’60s dirt track race, as soon as I’m done, I feel as though I’ve run the entire race myself,” he says.

McCoy’s art creations consist of original oil paintings of famous hot rods as well as personalized portraits of cars with or without their owners. Perhaps McCoy is most famous for his cartoon art and quarter scale replicas of some of the most famous race cars ever driven. Bob has owned about 30 hot rods of his own, including the famous ‘40 Ford Tudor that he purchased back in 1953, which became one of the most photographed hot rods in the United States. It is still featured in hot rod magazines to this day. Bob McCoy has also been featured in several national hot rod magazines in the United States, Japan and Australia.
