Farmer Budwit or Mike Budwit #130 my x stepdad. and boy were those the days.

Farmer Mike Budwig. Not sure on the spelling. He drove a very plain, non-descript Camaro #130, just painted in brown primer. He always parked in the corner of turn 2. Don Taylor parked immediately behind the building at the center of the infield.

He towed his car with an old school bus painted blue. I too, would LOVE to see some old pictures. I regularly attended the races in the 1970's, when I was a young teenager. A huge Don Taylor Pink Panther fan!.

I was only about 7 to 9 yrs old when my dad used to take me to Butler Motor Speedway in the mid 70's when Don Tayor, Denny Donaldson and cant remember the other guy's name but they called him Farmer B_ _ _ ? something like that. If anyone has any photos please contact me. 989-578-2444. Thanks Eddie Korbinski.

It has been a LONG time since I went to this place. It must have been in the mid 70s or so. We probably went to watch sprints or something then as the Mods and Supermods were begining to disappear from local tracks at the time. During the late 60s-early 70s, this place used to have some awsome Super Modified races. It was, along with Clark(now I-96) THE place in the state to go and watch SOD or early WOO races.

I didn''t notice this place on the current WOO schedule this past year, so they must not stop here anymore. I remember sitting in the grandstands of this place when I was little and it seemed like the cars were a mile away! The place sure looks smaller than I remember. All the great ones used to run there though.

Butler is going back to Saturday night racing, under new management. Because they lost a lot of the big races from the switch to Friday nights a couple of years ago, it''s taking them some doing to get those shows back. Here''s a link to the current website: http://www. butlerspeedway. net/index.

The track opened as a 1/4 mile dirt oval in 1952. It was expanded to 3/8 mile in 1956. The track has also operated as Butler Battlegrounds and Butler Motor Speedway.

My husband spoke to Ralph, owner of Galesburg track,and he confirmed he has purchased Butler. Racing will be Friday nights at 8pm. The website is changing and I think he said it will be Butler-Speedway. com and he hopes to have the site up tomorrow (3-7-06) and more info to quickly follow.

According to the Butler Motor Speedway website, the rumors of its sale, and being paved are false.
11/7/2005 - Chris Fobbe
Rumor has it that Galesburg Speedway owner/promoter Ralph Warning is in the works to purchase the track.
2/7/2005 - Chris Fobbe
Butler Motor Speedway has offically (I think) changed its name to Butler Battlegrounds.
