Buddy Baker had a legendary career in NASCAR and is honored and respected by all who know the sport. His career which spanned 36 years Harrison Butker Jersey , starting in 1959 and ending in 1994 made of Buddy a legend of motorsports. His career statistics are most impressive. Baker had a total of nineteen victories in his career. Add to that 43 second-place finishes, 58 third-place finishes and 52 fourth-place finishes. All this in 699 career races. His pal  Daeshon Hall Jersey , Richard Petty said of Baker that with any luck he would have won 50 races. His life time winnings were $3 ,635 Taylor Moton Jersey ,000 and this at a time when the purses were only a fraction of what they are today. At age fifty two shortly after a head injury Baker ended his career .

Buddy Baker started his career at the side of his legendary father, Buck Baker. He wasn't an overnight success. In fact Curtis Samuel Jersey , his first win came in his ninth season. His first win came at Charlotte in 1967 in a Ray Fox Dodge. He first won in a Ray Fox Dodge in 1967 at Charlotte. there was a point after eight seasons where Baker questioned if he would ever have a win. He would race more than 200 times before winning his first race.

You may say that 19 wins in 699 races is not that impressed. You may change your mind if you consider which races they were; he won four times at Charlotte, he had four wins at Talladega Luke Kuechly Vapor Untouchable Jersey , then two more each at Darlington, Atlanta and Daytona and finally victories at Ontario Cam Newton Vapor Untouchable Jersey , Michigan and Texas.

He was known to think that his best season was 1980. It was in that year that he won the Daytona 500 in a car prepared by Waddell Wilson. Fans called that impressive Olds the "Grey Ghost" because Baker drove it so fast it would seem to blend into the asphalt. He won the 500 that year at an average speed of 177 mph, a record that still holds today. Although he just had nineteen starts that year he managed to finish in the top 10 fully 10 times in 1980.

The 1980 Winston 500 was Baker's most memorable race. He managed two defeats a young Dale Earnhardt that year even though he had a nineteen second shortfall to make up. He took the lead with only two laps to go. He earned the esteem of all other drivers at that Winston 500. They were all amazed at his skills at drafting behind leading cars passing them all to gain a victory that had seemed elusive. Baker was modest in victory. He was certain that Dale Earnhardt could have beaten him if he had a little more experience at the time. Years later Baker estimated that in his eyes Earnhardt was the best that ever was behind the wheel.

It was in 1989 at the Coca-Cola 600 that he was seriously injured to the head. A large blood clot developed and had to be removed surgically. His career began to falter after that accident. He did recover and make seventeen more races but then ended his career for good after crashing in a qualifying lap in Atlanta. At age 52 Buddy Baker understood that his time at the top was over.

Baker still maintains ties to the sport as a consultant to Penske South Racing.







NAIROBI, Feb. 8 (Xinhua) -- The Kenya rugby 7s head coach Innocent Simiyu is considering making changes to his squad after an underwhelming start to the 201617 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.


Kenya is languishing in 11th place on 27 points after the opening four legs of the global circuit following another underwhelming tour to the New Zealand and Australia 7s in Wellington and Sydney.


The team that won their first Main Cup title in the 201516 Series when they took the honours in Singapore is already 13 points adrift compared to the same stage last season.


Simiyu who took over the side just before the start of the current campaign blamed a catalogue of basic mistakes and lack of focus.


"We had a lot of errors which is spoiling our game and we were caught out in those areas in critical moments of our games," the former Kenya 7s skipper who is struggling to fit into the 'larger than life' profile of his predecessor, Benjamin Ayimba, said in Nairobi on Tuesday.


"We let down our guard and lost especially in handling the ball and defensive errors on the breakdown. We are talking of 10 errors per game and it is hard to win with such errors in your team," Simiyu added.


After winning the Challenge Trophy in Wellington for eight points, Kenya slumped to a lowly 14th finish in Sydney after losing their final placement match to Canada.


"The mistakes are painful and costing us games. If you look at our games against England and South Africa, we were three minutes away from beating them but we lost in the final seconds due to lack of concentration," the dejected Simiyu added when his team made a low key return home to Nairobi in the early hours of Tuesday.


He announced he would make the changes and fuse untested players with regulars ahead of the next stop of the tour- the USA 7s in Las Vegas- next month.


"We have to get back to the drawing board and correct the mistakes that we did because we know what we have to work on to get the performances we desire. We have New Zealand, Argentina and Russia in Las Vegas and that is a balanced pool to me," his captain Andrew Amonde added.


Kenya is in Pool C of the USA 7s in Las Vegas while Wellington and Sydney champions, South Africa were drawn with Wales, Canada and France in Pool A.


Losing Australia 7s finalists, England will battle USA, Samoa and Chile in Pool B with Australia, Fiji, Japan and Scotland facing each other in Pool D.
