Bob Kurgan has been racing competitively since 1998 when he started racing Street Renegade in Fun Ford Weekend. At the time, he won many events, held many records, and qualified #1 at almost every race. As time progressed, he was asked to help out with rules etc. for the NMRA EFI Renegade class. He spent 6 months working with the owners before the series became public, to try and have a balanced platform for the class. In 2000, the first year of a full season with NMRA, he won the championship. Since then, he has finished in the top 5 for Renegade until 2005. In 2006, he decided to step it up a notch and race Drag Radial. He is one of 3 racers to have won an event that year( he actually won 2).
