Press Release

March 4, 2024
Bobby Gunther Walsh is ready to compete in 2024 at Grandview Speedway and schedule permitting plans a few appearances at Big Diamond Speedway in 2024.

Bobby is thrilled to welcome back all of his sponsors from the 2023 season. Including ResQ Natural Supplements of Palm, PA, Dr. Eric Lebby & Dr. Thomas Dibenedetto, Orthopedic Specialists, at; Agentis Kitchen and Bath in Allentown, Agentis Mr. Rooter Plumbing, Eden East Design & Landscape, Paul Wright Roofing, and Zongora Comfort Solutions top the list of almost three dozen sponsors.

Included in returning sponsors are such iconic brands as Just Born Candies and Herr’s Snack Foods. That means Gunther will once again be featuring tasty handouts for the fans after the races, like those famous Just Born Marshmallow Peeps, Mike & Ike Candies, Hot Tamales, and from Herr’s a variety of chips, pretzels, cheese curls and more. Gunther does a meet and greet after the races and every week fans are treated to goodies from those two iconic sponsors, and then additional handouts from each week’s featured sponsor, this is something that the fans have come to look forward to and Bobby looks forward to meeting the fans.

Gunther is happy that he has Crew Chief Jeff Paulson returning. Paulson is responsible for Gunther’s two best back-to-back seasons ever. Including Gunther’s first appearance in the Freedom 76er in a decade. Joining Jeff will be Bobby’s brother Joe Walsh, Bill Ohmacht and long-time team members, Randy Miller and Paul Ruppert. Like last year it’s hard for Gunther to put into words the difference Jeff Paulson has made to the team.

Gunther once again will be driving a 2022 Bicknell and his backup car is a 2024 Bicknell, and his motors are done by KB Performance, and his shocks are done by Fast Four Shocks, and once again Bobby thanks both of those partners Kit Kahm of KB Performance and Ronnie Seltman of Fast Four for providing him with top notch equipment.

Bobby has now completed his 40th year as an on-air personality and talk show host in the Lehigh Valley. He has been a fixture behind the microphone for 40 years and his show can also be seen on Service Electric Cable TV and Blue Ridge Cable. 40 years on one station, on one show is nearly unheard of in the radio business, and Gunther is proud of his accomplishment and all of the people who have helped him achieve it including his co-workers at WAEB and his incredible supportive listeners.

Bobby is active with many charities including Animals in Distress which raised over $218,000 last year. There was $115,000 raised for the Folds of Honor in 2023, which was a record. The annual Christmas Party for The Children’s Home of Easton was able to produce over $200,000 last year. And last year was the second year he brought back his infamous spaghetti dinner with his own homemade meatballs that he makes and serves to his listeners, and in so doing he has raised over $100,00 two years in a row for Love Ran Red, an organization that helps young adults with autism.

2024 is off to a great start with Bobby and his listeners raising over $105,000 for the Center for Animal Health & Welfare at the annual bowl-a-thon. Bobby rolls one ball for people pledging per pin, and this year with all that pressure of $105,000 on the line Bobby rolled a nine. Bobby continues to support other charities and is honored to be the MC for the last 15 years for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Student of the Year Awards Program, as well as their Man and Woman of the year program, now known as the Visionary Awards Program.

Last year, Gunther won one heat race, made a majority of the features, was thrilled to have made the three biggest races of the season, the Bruce Rogers, the Forrest Rogers, and the Freedom 76er. He is also thankful to the fans, the Grandview track officials, the ambulance crews, and everyone for their professionalism and outpouring of support for his wild ride last year on Labor Day weekend. He will never forget the kindness and concern shown to him and appreciates it.

As indicated Bobby Gunther will be kicking off his 30th season of racing with the Seventh Annual Bruce Rogers Memorial at Grandview, which he qualified for the last two years and with his best finish in this classic race being 9th place finish two years ago.
