June 10, 2017 - Returning for his first race at Kern County Raceway Park in 2017, Buddy wins both twin 30 lap main events!
The seventeen year old didn't disappoint his ecstatic fans when returning to KCRP for his first late model race of 2017. Missing a handful of late model events for the 2017 late model season, accumulating funds in hopes to race his Spears Southwest Tour car a few more races than originally planned in the series. He came hungry for WINS, and to defend his undefeated 2016 CHAMPIONSHIP season in his RaceCar Factory built, Bill Lowe powered rebuilt 604 crate motor hot rod.
Qualifying second fastest in a 15 car field, just missing fast time by a very slim margin. Starting P3 in the first of two twin 30 lappers, moving into the lead on lap 9. Starting P8 in the second twin 30 lapper, maneuvering his well-handling, stout, Mike Keen car chiefed hot rod into the lead on lap 10. Crossing the finish line P1 in both Twin 30's, rewarding himself and his crew for a victory celebration in the Raymond's Trophy Victory Lane!
