November 13, 2012

Webster's Dictionary defines a legend as a person or thing that inspires. There were no shortage of legends at the rescheduled 3rd annual Legends of Budds Creek on November 10th. With cars and stars from drag racing's early days, fans and racers came from all over to celebrate the sport that we all know and love dearly. With names such as MIR Hall of Famers Bunny Burkett, Dick "Daddy Warbucks" Estevez, Johnny Rocca, former MIR owner Bill Cairns, Charlie Yingling and many others, this day proved that the historic past of Maryland International Raceway and drag racing is just as important as its present and future.

Bunny Burkett got behind the wheel of her cotton candy corvette funny car and worked her way through the Wild Bunch field to take on legendary racer and old friend, the Flying Tomato, Bob White. At the flash of green, both drivers left together until Bob lost traction at 60 feet and Bunny cruised to victory, much to the delight of her crew and the thousands of fans in attendance. Being the true legend and sportsman that she is, Bunny requested that Bob stand in the Winner's Circle along with her as current MIR President and owner Royce Miller presented Bunny with the Irontree Trophy. Congratulations to all the race winners and Hall of Fame inductees, who have truly inspired all involved in the sport, to take it to new heights.
