April 29, 2017 - Buddy drove his hot rod to another impressive $2K win at Madera Speedway!
After a super busy Friday night practice, Buddy and his team topped the qualifying board with fast time, placing himself on top of a 26 car field! He started P9, fifth row inside, for the start of the MAVTV televised RPM Mortgage PRO Late Model Series 100 lap main event. On lap 26 Buddy took over the lead, after several stellar restarts, a 10 minute on track half way break on lap 50 with a few minor adjustments and to refuel, it was time to head back out for the remaining 50 laps, his sights set on the WIN.
Buddy's challenge came with several restarts. His lightening fast reflexes, state of the art RACE CAR FACTORY hot rod powered by Bill MAROPULOS RACING ENGINES, car chief MIKE KEEN, spotter BRYAN BROWN, crew chief DICK SHEPHERD, and my on track stellar team: ANDY, TJ, GARY, TONY, CORY, STEVE, MEGAN, MOM, my stellar shop team: JOHN, BO, JOEL catapulted him to the lead each time. End result: CELEBRATING IN VICTORY LANE!
