Racing careerEdit

Dotter got his start racing as a 16-year-old in 1977 driving one of his dad's Late Model cars at tracks like Waukegan Speedway and Raceway Park (Blue Island, IL.). Success came instantly with numerous wins including 17 feature wins at Raceway Park during his rookie season.

In 1992, Dotter won a Busch Series race at New River Valley Speedway. He has also won races in the ASA series, All Pro series, and All American Challenge series. Dotter was involved in one of the most frightening crashes ever seen at Daytona International Speedway during the ARCA race in 1989. While driving his father's race car he suffered a flat tire, the car hit the wall and caught fire, Bobby climbed onto the roof of the race car while still at speed to avoid the flames. He rode on the roof until the car slowed enough that he could jump off. He suffered second and third degree burns to his face and arms.
