September 8, 2018 - Buddy and his team earned another $10K payday at All American Speedway in Roseville, California!
Buddy and his team made their long journey a profitable one, taking charge from the tenth starting position in a full field of heavy hitters in the JM Environmental Highline 150.
From the start Buddy methodically made his way through the top ten qualifiers. Being his first time on the 1/3 mile track in an open late model, weaving his way through the field, capturing the win and the $10K!
It came with many challenges. After taking the lead around lap 90, his signature orange #22 hot rod seemingly took charge. With only a few laps remaining, a yellow came out to save the day. As Buddy's hot rod was lacking grip, enabling the second place driver to catch up to his tail and challenge him for the lead, passing Buddy on the back straightaway, only for a yellow to come out, reverting back to the previous lap, recording Buddy as the race leader.
On the restart with 5 laps remaining, tires cool, sites set on the win, Buddy got a stellar restart, pulling away from the field to take the win!
He can't thank his small, volunteer crew: Mike Keen, Tony Lamas, Bryan Brown, Dick and Kellie Shepherd enough for all their hard work during an extremely warm weekend in Roseville.
A shoutout to his sponsors: FINISHMASTERS - AXALTA - ADVANCED DISTRIBUTION - H&S Body Works and Towng - Dragster Joe Custom DieCast - Bakersfield Muffler - Schaeffer's Racing Oil - Campbell Motorsports - Crystal Pools.
Thanks to Bill McNally and the Moore family for hosting the event, and all the All American Speedway staff.
