About Robert Neeley:
Robert Neeley began racing in the early 70’s locally in and around his South Carolina home. Married and working a regular 40+ hour work week, Robert caught the eye of the new Team Green program at Kawasaki. He would become their go-to guy in the early days of Loretta Lynn’s, Ponca City and Lake Whitney.
From 1883 to 1990, Neeley didn’t miss a Loretta Lynn's. He scored ten top-10 finishes including 5 Senior 30+championships. Robert came back again in 1994 and won the Senior 40+ crown. During that time frame, he also has four Ponca City and four Lake Whitney championships to his credit.
He began racing offroad at the age of 33 and had success there as well winning the 125 National Hare Scrambles Championship in 1988 and qualifying for the ISDE in both Germany and France. He even has five vintage national championships.
Today, Robert no longer competing himself but he serves as a mentor for his grandson GNCC XC2 class competitor Cole Mattison.
Join us this Saturday night in Atlanta as we honor this great racer.
