June 17, 2017 - Fast qualifier, and a seventh place finish for the seventeen year old Bakersfield California kid.
With the hottest day on record for the year, Buddy wheeled his #22 hot rod to earn another fast qualifier award. Drew P9 for the start of the first 50, he methodically weaved his way through the heavy hitters in front of him until he drove himself into the lead. Buddy crossed the finish line in the lead at the halfway break.
Buddy's stellar crew refueled his hot rod, made a few minor changes, sent him back out to lead the field after the ten minute break.
Buddy maintained his lead, had blazing restarts, was challenged a few times during the remainder of the race. However, on the last turn, of the last lap, Buddy was leading, got dumped, spun, and was hit by three other cars which had no where to go.
It will be a busy month on the car with numerous repairs, but planning to compete at Madera Speedway on July 29th for Round #5 of the 51 FIFTY, MAVTV televised RPM Mortgage PRO Late Model Series $5K to win!
