June 18, 2016 - Before Buddy earned his fifth win in five consecutive races at KCRP, he was so honored for Johnny Bedingfield to ask him to give three Wounded Hero veterans, Aaron, Jeremy and Casey ride-a-longs in the KCRP two seater late model. He was so proud to be such a big part of their night that he dedicated his race to all our men, women, K-9's and their families who are currently serving, have served or have given the ultimate sacrifice for their service. Without their service he would not be able to to live in a free country, and racing would be non existent.
Buddy earned another fast qualifier notch on his already impressive resume, earned the roll for the invert, rolling a three but somehow was told that he would be starting the 40 lap main event in the sixth starting position.
When the green flag flew he maneuvered his way from the third row outside into P3 coming out of turn two, took the lead on the first lap and never looked back. There were two yellows during the 40 laps which bunched the field up twice. Buddy restarted on the outside front row on both restarts. He managed to make two very clean restarts to find himself leading going into turn one for both.
