Many of you 'old timers' certainly remember his dad, Rich Bubak, who ran the World of Outlaws and 'invader' circuit from the 80's, on; many times in his familiar number 9 and 9X (the same number now shared with son Jake).
Regarding the 'distant ties to Texas', also pictured below is Rich who drove the Max and Laura Henson owned 22 ( and sometimes the car was numbered 2¢ ) sprint car based out of Dallas.
Pictured with Rich (RR tire) is a very young Wayne Brown, AKA cwb15.com (circa 1990) standing behind Max who is sitting on the LF tire.
Also below, is a picture of the number 9 of father Rich, which is familiar to all of you well-seasoned sprint car fans...of which I am one of, LOL...
For those keeping track, Jake also becomes the current 'long haul' team at the OWN, as it is 640 miles one-way from his home in Colorado to RRS.
We'd like to welcome the Bubak clan to Red River Speedway this weekend, and we hope you fans enjoyed this snippet of 'behind the scenes' and racing history as the Red River Open Wheels Nationals weekend begins to unfold.
