Bob Morris, auto racing hall-of-famer and former Sun Journal writer, passes

AUBURN — Former Sun Journal writer and longtime auto racing journalist/publicist Robert S. 'Bob' Morris, of Auburn, passed away in West Roxbury, Massachusetts, on Wednesday due to complications from surgery. He was 69.

Morris got his start in journalism in June of 1976 writing for the now-defunct New England Speedway Scene trade paper. One year later, he started producing the weekly souvenir program for Oxford Plains Speedway and continued to do so for 15 years.

During that time, he also worked with the late Bob Walker to present the race show at the Auburn Mall.

In 1984, Morris started writing for the Sun Journal covering auto racing around Maine. ... es/2123564
