Does anyone here know Bud Anderson?
I got to meet him yesterday at Thunderhill when we were leaving. He saw the RC51 in my truck and that started our conversation. After a 20 minute delightful talk with him about all things RC51, he invited me to friend request him on FaceBook.
What a totally cool guy. He's 58- only 5 years older than me -and I think I understand that he still races. I also understood that he raced and won on his RC51 for 4 years. He mentioned a race on the weekend of August 3rd & 4th at Leguna Seca that he'll be in. I'm going to make the trip to watch him once I verify all the details. I think he may be racing on a RC51. (Sorry I'm not so clear, my head was still buzzing from the day's events at the track.)
I also got to meet Ricky Brown, who had just raced last weekend AMA at Leguna Seca. Again, very cool guy, friendly and willing to chat for a bit even tho it was closing time at the track.
Here's an old post I found from Mr. Anderson, it's a good little story.
