Hall Of Fame Driver Bob Zeigler, 93

WEEDSPORT, N.Y. — Bob Zeigler, pioneer driver and promoter, passed away on Feb. 22 at the age of 93. Zeigler built his first race car in 1950 before getting the call to serve his country in the Korean War. Following two years of military service, Zeigler picked up right where he left off, scoring his first win at St. Lawrence Valley Speedway in Canton in 1953 — his first year back. Zeigler was a regular at that track for five years, but fractured the record books, scoring 31 feature wins — the most in Watertown’s history — and taking three track titles, in 1957, ’59 and ’61.
