Recently, the 2012 Cup Series champion discovered another photograph of him and his father together.

This particular picture showed Bob giving his son a little help while teaching him to drive. According to the RFK Racing driver, the photograph was taken around 1990. Moving to the present, he revealed that the family is preparing for the funeral and it was great to find such mementos.
