May 7, 2016 - The kid raced to his third win at Kern County Raceway Park on Mother's Day Eve, but only after a very challenging day for the KCRP team.
Just when you think the weather couldn't get any crazier, a storm blew through on Friday leaving several feet of water and mud on the track surface, flooded the drive thru tunnel to the pits which left quite a mess to be cleaned up. With the dedication of track personnel, owners and several volunteers they were able to get all classes on the track for one practice at 6:30pm. Once practice concluded main events began, due to time restraints there was not any qualifying for any of the classes.
In the one and only practice for the day and with practice being cancelled on Friday night, Buddy and his team decided to make a short run to scuff tires for the main and a brief pit stop during to switch tires and shake down the car.
Their plan was an excellent choice as they earned their third win in three races, leading 118 laps of 120 since the 2016 season began. It didn't come easy though...yellows brought the field back together twice, and he had a fellow competitor breathing down his neck most the race. At times you could throw a blanket over the top three cars!
A HUGE THANK YOU TO THE ENTIRE KCRP CLEAN UP CREW!
Next Race: May 21, 2016 @ Kern Co. Raceway Park - SRL Southwest Tour.
