Norman “Bubby” Jones was an American short-track racing icon, an open-wheel master whose trail of victories dotted the map and led him, ultimately, to the Indianapolis 500.
In this week's episode, Tim is joined by his longtime friend and author, Bones Bourcier. They reminisce the life and memories they have of the legendary driver, Bubby Jones.
Mark “Bones” Bourcier has covered American automobile racing since 1976, contributing columns and feature stories to a number of magazines and newspapers. He is a two-time winner of the “Miller Racing Award of Excellence,” one of motorsports journalism’s most coveted annual prizes, and a past recipient of the Eastern Motorsports Press Association’s “Frank Blunk Memorial Award” for outstanding contribution to motorsports journalism. Among his books are several widely acclaimed motorsports autobiographies, including “As a Matter of Fact, I AM Parnelli Jones,” co-written with the 1963 Indianapolis 500 winner; “True Speed: My Racing Life,” with two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart; and “The People’s Champ” with USAC legend Dave Darland. A Connecticut native, Bourcier now resides in Indianapolis. Most of his books are available at www.coastal181.com
