Buddy put his Hall Ambulance, Crystal Pools, H & S Body Works and Towing, Advanced Distribution, Cow-Boy Bail Bonds, RTS, Race Hard.com 37 Ford Sedan in the number 5 position in practice out of 39 legend cars at Stockton 99 Speedway on Saturday! He was smokin’ fast! He then found himself 14th fastest in qualifying, locking up a starting position in the A-Main and, followed it up starting and finishing 4th in his heat.
Buddy’s A-Main was cut short though after he burst into flames on the back stretch in just the beginning laps, due to an oil line blowing off the oil fitting! As he made his way around to the front straightaway, he was already unbuckled and out of his HOT rod when it came to a stop. The track fire crew was on it immediately and extinguished the flames. Buddy was fine, just bummed that he dnf’d for the night. And, the car didn’t receive much damage, mostly and oily mess and a few wires charred.
Buddy’s crew will have the car ready for practice this Friday, April 12th at the Kern County Raceway Park. And, will be racing it on their opening night May 4th. Hope to see all of you there!
