Mini Bio (1)
Glenn Roberts made a name for himself as a high school pitcher with a blazing fastball, but he didn't truly shine until he charged through the superspeedways. Though tagged with the nickname "Fireball", Roberts went racing dirt tracks at the age of eighteen. Though his father didn't approve of this, Glenn talked his mother to sign the release form to race modified stock cars. Roberts raced the modifieds, until the joined the famed Holman-Moody team in 1956. He raced to success, and soon his winsome smile, and crewcut became the most reconized face on the NASCAR circut. Sought after for endorsements that took him all over the country. Affable, yet reserved, Roberts disliked his nickname, to his friends he was just "Glenn". At the world 600 in 1964, he, Ned Jarrett, and Junior Johnson crashed. Fireball's car landed on it's roof, and flaming gasoline filled the cockpit. Ned pulled him out of the car, and he was rushed to the hospital with burns over 80% of his body. He died weeks later from his injuries.
