    Your hard pressed to find a guy who has been involved in Racing who really enjoys the racing as much as Bob does… very low key and on the quiet side when you first meet him…. But what a great guy and ambassador for the sport of oval track racing.. Dick Houlihan was a fantastic Shoe who won a bunch in 4 cylinders and Pro Stocks along with Championships to boot… Dickie is also quiet & very humble guy who would help you if you asked . He would give you great advice and get you going in the right direction …Two great guys in Racing..JR Precast has been involved at Seekonk for many years & it’s great to see this Race with their name front & center … It will be quite the reunion at Seekonk with all the Family , Fans, Friends of the JR bunch …Can’t wait to see everyone… Shawn Houlihan, Dicks son, is an Excellent Flagger on the Whelen Modified Tour….
