Bakersfield, Ca.

August 24, 2013 - After an awesome practice session on Friday night, Buddy earned a struggling 4th place finish on Saturday night at Kern Co Raceway Park.  "My car was blistering fast last night, only to struggle with the car all day today!", said Buddy.  

He laid down his personal best practice times on Friday.  On Saturday he qualified 2nd fastest, started P3 and finishing P2 in the Trophy Dash.  Fast qualifier rolled an invert of 6, putting Buddy on the inside of row 3 for the Feature.  He eventually drove up to 3rd and was battling for 2nd only to find the car so loose coming out of the corners that he just couldn't keep the momentum up to make the pass for P2.  This kept him stuck on the heels of the car in front of him while the 4th place car caught up to them, and passed them both with just a few laps remaining.  However, Buddy still maintains the point lead in the Legends Division, despite his disappointing day.  However, there is one thing that really cheers him up and it's the Autograph Session.  He digs meeting and visiting with his fans of ALL ages.

On Sunday the team scaled the car and located the mystery.  And with that said, he'll be back in the office chair at Kern Co Raceway Park this Saturday looking for that 4th win of the season!

Race On!!!
