Our thoughts are with Rob Deneweth's family and friends. Rob passed away last week. We worked with Rob many times on various Ford Racing engine stories, and we always enjoyed his company and appreciated his knowledge.
Below is an official statement from Jamie Allison Director of Ford Racing:
"All of us at Ford Racing are deeply saddened by the passing of our colleague and friend Rob Deneweth," said Jamie Allison, director, Ford Racing. "Those of us at Ford involved in the racing program are very much like a small family, and when you lose a member of your family, you grieve and feel a real loss. Rob was a terrific engineer who did such great work, including his effort with the most recent Twin-Turbo Cobra Jet project. All of us at Ford Racing send our deepest condolences to Rob's wife, Julie, and their three children. We have lost a true friend."
