Local 6-Year-Old Finds Passion In Racing

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIXVILLE, Pa. - A local 6-year-old is turning heads on the race course. Levittown's Bobby Klein lives, breaths and eats racing.

Fox 29's Sabina Kuriakose joins him on the track to find out what gets the little boy's motor running.

Bobby had the need for speed ever since he was a toddler.

“He started at 5-year-old, it's discipline, every one of these kids does a great job,” said his father, Chuck.

He started racing in the Montgomery County Quarter Midget Racing Club last month, and he's already a triple champ.

Bobby even wore lucky socks for the race on Wednesday.

His parents, Donna and Chuck, have trained themselves to have nerves of steel each time Bobby revs that engine.

“Every time he races my heart is in my throat,”said his father.

Bobby’s parents just want him to have fun, but like any true competitor his love of racing comes from within.

A second place finish leaves Bobby inconsolable. He's playing to win.

"He puts his heart and soul into it it's tough for him," said his father. "This is being a NASCAR driver for him that's what he wants to be when he grows up."

Still this is just the first of many laps for little Bobby.

“Everything is racing to him it's his way it's something he loves and as a parents we support it as king as he loves it,” said his father.
