    Bud passed from cancer a few years back. I helped his widow sell his other race car and parts, was able to buy this car from her. When Bud moved to Boonville back in 2001 he found my shop in Columbia and commissioned me to bend all the tubing for this car.

    Just dropped off the rotating assembly for balancing. Still a ways to go.
     
  11. Man this looks like a super cool event. Killer line-up, from what I can see
    Wish I could break away and attend
    Anyone that wants to warm up in late October can come to Orlando for the 5th annual Florida Dragstrip Riot, October 30th at Orlando Speedworld

    Couldn't make it for the race. My wife's recovery from china-virus is not where we were hoping it to be. 5 months now and she is still on o2. Went to Bowling Green with my Buick buddies back in may, (my birthday present from her) and she missed out on all the wheelie craziness. (Car has never pulled the wheels more than 9" for 24 years. Amazing what a converter will do.) Swore I wouldn't not have her with me at a race away ever again. Please hang in there with me, I get a kick out of going 24806~2.jpeg racing in new places. That's why I sign up for these races up the country. Signed up for Meltdown 4 or 5 times, something came up everytime. I work at a refinery, strange hours and schedules, that's what usually knocks me out of these get togethers. But I keep trying. Looks like y'all had a fun time. Maybe next year.
