November 18, 2017 - Wheeling the #22 hot rod for Nick Sivesend at the Las Vegas Bullring in the Spears SRL Southwest Tour Series, Buddy earns a solid fifth place finish for the team's efforts under the direction of Butch Vandoorn.
Rolling into the Las Vegas Bullring on Friday for practice, the Nick Sivesend/Wilson's Motorsports/Wilson's Industrial Pump Inc/Vandoorn Racing Development team went to work fine tuning the #22 hot rod. At the completion of practice Buddy and team found theirselves in the Top 5.
Returning to the track the following morning for race day, the hard working team preparing the car for an hour long practice session, qualifying, and the 125 lap main event. Earning a P9 in qualifying, starting P9 in the 125 lap main event, finishing P5 for their hard work. That P5 finish didn't come easy, it was a hard fought battle with the 28 car starting field, dicing it up and being up on top of the wheel every lap.
A BIG shout out to the crew: Nick, Butch, Lance, Charlie, Andy, Joel, Jason, Gabe, Miles, my dad. And to WILSON'S INDUSTRIAL PUMP, VANDOORN RACING DEVELOPMENT, WILSON'S MOTORSPORTS.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING, MERRY CHRISTMAS, AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
