The Cruzers are very proud to announce our Judge for our July 6, 2019 Car Show at Jefferson Middle School. Bob Millard is a well known judge in a wide circle of events.We were lucky enough to meet Bob and have him judge our show this year! Bob Millard has worked tirelessly over the last 50 years, judging vehicles entered at ISCA santioned events, including the Detroit Autorama. In 1979, he was named competition director and wrote and enforced the rules to ensure that judging was performed correctly.

This year marks Bob Millard's Golden Anniversary in the custom car show industry. To say that cars are his life might sound like an exaggeration but in this case, it is absolute fact. Fifty years of hot cars, great times and wonderful friendships keep him coming back for more. He's tried to retire, but it's just not i his blood.

It all started in Austin, Minnesota, when Bob judged his first car show He found that he had the interest, experience and keen eye to judge a show car properly and fairly. It's proven true over many years and just as many heated debates. Bob can deliver great news or news regarding "room for improvement" on a show car with the perfect blend of kindness, humor and authority.

As General Manager of the ISCA, Bob has the experience to back up his decisions. He started judging ISCA shows in the early 70s quickly becoming an ISCA supervisor in 1973.

In 1979, Bob became ISCA< Competitive Director and also met Sandy, the woman who would become his wife. Of course, Sandy was heavily involved in the ISCA as the Southeastern DivisionDIrector. Leave it to Bob to find the prettiest and sweetest woman in the ISCA. Bob and Sandy married in 1983.

Over the years, Bob has judged hundreds o car shows. Along the way, he has become the goodwill ambassador for our sport. His gregarious nature naturally bonds with competitors, sponsors and his peers

Bob has received countless honors, attesting to his stronghold in the business. SEMA named him "Individual of the Year," in 2010. In 2013: The National Street Rod Association (NSRA) honored Bob with an Achievement Award for his contributions in the industry.

His involvement with the Ridler Award has been a key facto in the evolution o the competition. Bob first worked with Al Maynard in the early years and then Butch Patrico fo the last 15 years to help raise the Ridler Award to "brass ring" status.

Bob's love of this sport is ever-present, therefore he was the perfectcandidate to develop our youth initiative, which has become a thriving program.

As much as Bob loves cars, there is no greater love than the love of a child. One of Bob's proudest accomplishments is imparting his love of car shows on to his son, Brian, who is oneof the top ISCA officials today.
