Oklahoma's first women Race Car driver passed today. Buddy Faye Ebey (Foster) was instrumental in allowing women in the Pit Gate and in competition at Fairgrounds Speedway (SFS) and other tracks across the state, including Enid, Goldsby, and others.

Buddy Faye drove the #44 on the quarter mile track in Oklahoma City after a Court battle with then promoter Bud Carson. She set a precedence that today allows women to compete in back then what was a male orientated sport.

Wes Farrand, 75, of Kansas City, MO, passed away March 31, 2010. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m., Thursday, April 8, 2010 at Floral Hills Funeral Home.
Wes was born on October 21, 1934 in Independence, MO to Frederick and Louise Farrand. He was a truck driver and a member of Teamsters Local 41 and Local 541 for over 32 years. Wes was an avid race car driver. "Wes was a good hard racer whom I considered to be a clean driver. He also wasn't about to let anyone run rough shod over him." This was quoted from Bud Hunnicut's book, Up on the Wheel. Kansas City auto racing was synonymous with Wes Farrand. As his career was in its infantcy, so was the competition in Kansas City. He started with modifieds and graduated to Midgets and Sprints. He was always a top competitor. He had a racing glint in his eye until the end of his life. "If you raced with Wes fair and square, he could race 100 laps with you and never touch you. And if you beat him, you beat him! But if you touched him, he was a little touchy about touching back. He was always forgiving; believed in God, and a best friend." Quote from Ray Lee Goodwin, "Racer on Racer", Sprint Car and Midget Magazine, October 2009.
Wes loved to hunt and fish, and especially liked to go Morrell mushroom hunting. He was also a huge fan of Harry S. Truman.
He is preceded in death by his parents and brother Kenneth Farrand. Survivors include, children, Shirley Farrand-Plaisance; Michelle Spring and husband, Terry; and Wes Farrand, Jr.; grandchildren, Wes Plaisance; Bree Ottwell; Ashley and David Spring; great grandchildren, Alyssa and Ethan Plaisance; Tanner and Tamera Ottwell; and many close friends and racing friends.
