Our Mission

Joe Kosiske

Joe Kosiske’s involvement in racing started in 1949 building cars driven by Stan Williams. In 1952, Kosiske’s son, Bob, started racing also. Driving Joe’s car, Bob won the track championship at Riverside Speedway in South Omaha in 1953. In 1959, Joe and Bob decided to step up from the local tracks and run with the IMCA Late Model circuit. In 1960, the father-son duo took an even bigger step by competing in the Daytona 500, but mechanical problems forced them from the race. Bob won a 100-lap feature at Madison, Minn., on September 11, 1960, however, in the early morning hours after the race, Joe was fatally injured in an auto accident while the team was returning home. Joe was inducted into the Nebraska Auto Racing Hall of Fame in 2000.
