He started his announcing career in 2002 as a PA announcer at various tracks in his home state of California before becoming the first traveling announcer for the All Star Circuit of Champions in 2003. During his 3 year stint with the All Stars, Rob announced live at the track while “simulcasting” each event live on the internet. In 2006, Rob left the All Stars to become the first national traveling announcer for the United States Auto Club (USAC) calling Midget, Sprint and Silver Crown events from coast to coast. That same year his career in television began alongside veteran broadcaster Jack Arute on the "USAC Thunder" broadcasts for The Outdoor Channel. He also created/wrote/produced/hosted a live 2 hour “USAC Racing” Radio Show each week.
Rob has continued his career in motorsports television covering virtually anything and everything. From two-wheels to four, dirt to pavement, demolition derby to drag boats, mini-sprints to modifieds, and snowmobiles to sprint cars. In 2020, he became a licensed Real Estate Broker and in 2021 became the house announcer for the brand new Xtreme Outlaw Midget & Sprint Series from the World Racing Group. Most recently in 2022, it was a return to The Outdoor Channel as Rob hosted a competition show called "Overlanders" to air in July 2023.
