A very sad day for drag racers losing one of Drag Racing's greatest Bud Faubel. He was a
fighter jet pilot during the Korea and Viet Nam wars. He was also a retired airline pilot
and continued drag racing during all of these times. He was also a champion ballroom dancer
with his lovely wife Barbara. He also raced in NASCAR and was with Curtis Turner when he
landed a plane in a town to get some refreshments.
A book is coming on his exciting life by his wife.
R.I.P my ole friend.
