Drag Racing Legend Bobby Langley passed away

Pioneer Texas drag racer Bobby Langley, known throughout the southwest for his line of good-looking and hard-running Scorpion dragsters, died Oct. 21. He was 79.

In addition to his wife, Langley is survived by his son, Jack, and daughter, Judy Gregory; brother, Harold Lee Langley; four grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

Re: Drag Racing Legend Bobby Langley passed away

Sorry to hear about Bobby.  I grew up watching him race the Scorpians at Green Valley and spoke with him for many years.  He was well liked by everyone and he will be missed.  Last time I spoke to Bobby was about 3 years ago when I discovered an article about him and sent him the article.

Rest In Peace
