GLEN HELEN’S BUD FELDKAMP INDUCTED INTO HALL OF FAME
On Monday, October 31, 2016, the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame will inducted Glen Helen’s Dr. Bud Feldkamp at the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. To a whole generation of off-road racers, the combination of Dr. Bud Feldkamp and Malcolm Smith represented the pinnacle of the sport in the late 1970’s. In his blue and white Funco SS II (aka The Belray Bullet), Bud Feldkamp not only posted overall wins in two Baja 1000’s, three Baja 500’s and two Mint 400’s, but he also earned two consecutive desert championships, along with two Bilstein Madonna awards. Since motorcycles were Bud’s first passion and ultimately what brought him to desert racing, it is fitting that he has taken that passion to Glen Helen Raceway where, as president, he has created a world class off-road venue, hosting such events as the AMA U.S. Motocross Nationals, FIM U.S. Grand Prix of Motocross and Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. This year’s inductees also include land use advocate Don Amador, Trackside Photo’s Jim Ober, five-time Baja 1000 winner Larry Ragland, and racing team innovator Tracy Valenta.
