Bud Burdick

Bud Burdick began his racing career in 1948 when his older brother, Roy, built a stock car for Bud and they proceeded to dominate the Midwest for the next two decades. He won many races at Grandview Speed Bowl in Omaha and the championship in 1951 and 1952. He won more races at Iowa’s Playland Park and the championship in 1953, 1955 and 1959. He raced in the 1960 Daytona 500. He won four consecutive championships at Sunset Speedway from 1959 through 1962 and became Sunset’s winningest driver with a total of 146 wins, including 33 A Features. He was voted “Most Popular Driver” by the fans in 1973 -- his final year as a driver. Burdick was inducted into the Nebraska Auto Racing Hall of Fame in 1999.
