Bob Walker remembered as the voice of Oxford Plains Speedway

Bob Walker was the voice of Oxford Plains Speedway for more than three decades and most race fans will tell you that nobody did it better.

Walker died Wednesday at 71, and while his legendary voice has fallen silent, the voices of those who loved him were ringing out.

"At the top of his game," sports writer Kalle Oakes said, "there was nobody better on the planet at what they did. Nobody."

Oakes, who covered local racing during his 27 years at the Lewiston Sun Journal, credits Walker with a lot more than simply electrifying generations of race fans.
