Bakersfield, Ca.


Running a very close second place, a breathtaking climb up back straightaway k-wall on lap 27, Buddy and his HALL AMBULANCE, CRYSTAL POOLS, COW-BOY BAIL BONDS, ADVANCED DISTRIBUTION, H & S BODY WORKS and TOWING, RACEHARD.COM, SCHAEFFERS RACING OIL hot rod finished in the eighth position and continues to lead the Legends Division Points at Kern Co Raceway Park!

The feature saw a complete invert for the field in Saturday night's action.  Once the green flag flew for the start of the race, Buddy worked his way into the second position. He once again had the fastest car, proven by Race Monitor, as he posted the fastest lap time in the feature.  As he closed the gap between him and the leader only to find that "Lady luck" was not on his side once again.  Gaining ground on the leader and sucking up on the leaders rear bumper, coming out of turn 2, using up as much track to gain enough momentum for the pass, he took a breathtaking ride on the back straightaway k-rail.  As his car drove up on the k-rail, the underneath of his car could be seen by all team crew members who just knew it was going to flip over.  However, with Buddy's quick reactions that enabled him to get off the k- wall on all four tires instead of on his roof!  He limped his way under his own power to his pits with excitement to share about his ride!!!

Buddy posted the fastest lap in P2, second fastest in qualifying, and a second place finish in the Trophy Dash to concluded the night. 

With one points race remaining, Buddy still leads the Legends Division field in the point standings, with hopes that him and his AWESOME team will be take home the inaugural Kern County Raceway Park Legends Division Championship on Saturday, October 19, 2013.
