July 1, 2018 - A HUGE THANK YOU to Byron and Carol Campbell/CAMPBELL MOTORSPORTS for the opportunity to wheel their #43 hot rod for an amazing, and unforgettable weekend in the 2018 Summer Showdown at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, Washington!
It was a rain soaked weekend, with the race getting underway, a day late, on Sunday afternoon. Washington state holding up to it's name, with rain, and heavy mist, drenching the track and pits most of the 5 days the team took residency there.
The 200 lap Summer Showdown green flag got underway around 1pm. Starting P12 of 41, Buddy was on the move, making a mandatory halfway pit stop on lap 93, another quick pit stop on lap 122 for quick adjustments, restarting P30 at the rear of the field, driving up to the tenth position when the checkered flag flew!
Evergreen Speedway is a tricky, 5/8 mile track with holes, tire eating surface, and a monster truck of a jump coming out of turn four, which made for the most challenging track Buddy has ever raced on.
Shoutout to the crew: Byron Campbell, Mike & Vicki Keen, Sal, Steve, Dennis, Dick, Bryan, and Kellie.
Next Race: July 28, 2018 @ Madera Speedway - RPM Mortgage/MAVTV Televised Open Late Models 5K to win! Driving the Shepherd Racing #22 orange hot rod.
