Buddy Kofoid earns a complete streak at Tri-City. Every time Kofoid touched the track, it was perfection. In his heat race, he charged from 6th to 1st and the win. Even with the ever-changing track surface changes throughout the night, Kofoid and the KKM crew had the number 67 on rails in an untouchable performance that resulted in a 5.802 second margin of victory that actually didn’t fully underscore how dominant he truly was.
The performance also elevated the defending series champion to the top of the point standings for the first time this year and provided team owner Kunz his 124th career victory as a USAC National Midget entrant, moving him to within nine of Steve Lewis’ all-time record of 133.
