Pictures from the 2002 season.
The 1995 season was a transition year for Randy. By many standards a very successful year, the 1995 season was spent proving his abilities as a driver of high horsepower rear wheel drive machines. TC Kline Racing moved into the Bridgestone Super Car Series (a series almost identical to the current Speed World Challenge GT Series). Kline took Pobst with him and Randy proved that decision wise with five podium finishes. Randy's solo professional win from the 1995 season came from a one off ride in a Honda Prelude at Watkins Glen in the IMSA Street Stock Series.
The 1996 season was a critical season in the career of Pobst. Kline moved from the Supercar Series to the North American Touring Car Championship. The new series was high profile with manufacturer support and very strong competition. With Honda support Pobst took the Championship with five wins and five poles. The Championship convinced Kline to invite Pobst back as lead driver in the 1997 North American Touring Car series as they campaigned a McLaren built BMW.
