April 25, 2015 - The kid is on a role! Getting his second straight win at Madera Speedway tonight for an overall total of three wins for the season in five outings! Another BIG celebration in victory lane for the team.
May 30, 2015 - Buddy earns a top 5 finish in his K&N Pro Series West debut before a sold out crowd at Shasta Speedway in Anderson, California piloting the #55 Jefferson Pitts car.
After 150 laps of intense, on top of the wheel racing, nose to tail action at the 1/3 mile oval, Buddy crossed the finish line in P5, an impressive finish for the 15 year old, and the youngest driver on the grid! But that was only after a stellar qualifying run, placing him P3 out of 23 cars! Here's how close it was: #1=15.873, #2=15.906 and Buddy = 15.907! Quite impressive for the kids' first career West Series race.
Many thanks go out to Jefferson Pitts Racing Team, Chuck Carruthers, Derek Thorn, Bryan Brown, Shepherd Racing Team, D'Angelo's Automotive & Industrial Coatings, Axalta, RTS- Remedial Transportation Service, my dad and mom. A shout out to Randy Smith, Becky and Connor, the Andy, Tjeira, Kylie Worley who drove up, cousin Bill who drove down and all the new fans made to cheer Buddy on at the track, my family, friends, fans and sponsors for all their continued support, faith and encouragement.
Next Race: June 13, 2015 @ Kern Co. Raceway Park.
