Lyons is amongst the most accomplished journalists in the motorsports world. He has covered everything on four wheels across six decades and is the author of 12 books. His work has been honored with the Dean Batchelor Award of the Motor Press Guild, an award for journalism given by the Road Racing Driver's Club, and the International Motor Press Association's Ken Purdy Award

At age 80, he has completed his latest book, Shadow: the Magnificent Machines of a Man of Mystery: Can-Am – Formula 1 – F5000 from Evro Publishing. He and his wife Lorna spent in total some eight long days with “Shadowman” Don Nichols in his Salinas, California, shop – a nondescript dirt-floor warehouse that held treasures of his career.

The podcast talks on the Shadow topic but dives deep into Lyon’s career. Inspired by his photographer father, Ozzie, Lyons was on-hand for some of the greatest moments in the racing world going back to the 1950s as a wide-eyed boy at such tracks as Bridgehamption, Watkins Glen, Lime Rock, Sebring and Marlboro. His career choice was one driven by passion.

Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
