Eric Gilbert, nickname Bone, is from Vassar, MI., and has been racing for more than 25 years. He has been competing in the Eve of Destruction events since they began at Dixie. Eric and a buddy built a car together, started coming to the track, and the rest is history. He competes in all of the EOD events with #30, a 1992 Chevy Silverado, but the Figure 8 races are his favorite. Eric works as a mechanic. He recently got married, and enjoys hunting, fishing, and spending time with his family when he isn’t racing.
