Bobby Edwards had always loved cars since he was in school, but at the time could not afford the cars he really wanted. After graduating in 2011, he started saving up for the 2012 Subaru WRX STI hatchback of his dreams. In 2012, he purchased the car as a daily driver, but has since modified the Subaru for track duty and weekend driving.
