USAC Silver Crown Driver in Search of Sprint and Midget Rides for Manzanita
K&N supported, Campbell, California native, Brandon "Bud" Kaeding has his sites set on Manzanita Speedway in Arizona. "I'm really excited to be competing in the Silver Crown race at Manzanita. I think our chances are really good," said Kaeding. With a second and fourth place finish at Copper on Dirt at Manzanita over the last two years, Bud has his eye on the podium. As Kaeding put it, "The BK Motorsports team is ready to go!"
Bud Kaeding has his eye on championship at Silver Crown race at Manzanita Speedway in Arizona
The U.S. is struggling to cope with tough economic times and racing has felt the crunch. This leaves teams like Kaeding's looking for alternative avenues for racing. BK Motorsports, like many others, realizes the cost of traveling to and from races can have a crippling effect on already tight budgets. Rationalizing the situation Bud told K&N "I am looking for a sprint or midget car ride because towing from California, to Phoenix, then Las Vegas and finally back to California would cost around ten-thousand dollars." Kaeding is in search of an empty driver's seat already at the track. "I don't care what I am racing as long as I am winning," he said.
Kaeding's last race was the Tulsa, Oklahoma Chili Bowl at the Quicktrip Center. "Our result was not what we hoped for, but with 300 cars we definitely didn't have our heads down," he said. The competition at the Chili Bowl was second to none and it really came down to pure luck. Kaeding qualified 14th which earned him a spot in the C-Main. A notable 6th place finish there moved Kaeding into the B-Main that evening. Bud fought his way up to 9th in the B-Main before car trouble prematurely ended his night.
With the Copper on Dirt at Manzanita approaching, Kaeding is looking for a chance to make up for the ill-timed car trouble that ended his race early at the Chili Bowl. He looks to K&N for support and superior protection for his engines. "I run K&N for the increased performance and a cleaner running engine," he said. "K&N products clean up on engine rebuilds easier and there is a noticeable increase in horsepower on the dyno."
Keep an eye out for Kaeding and his team at the upcoming Sand's Chevrolet Copper on dirt at the Manzanita Speedway on February 20th and 21st. With a full season of USAC races, including Las Vegas, Nevada and Perris, California, Kaeding is sure to turn some heads in 2009.
