Bucky is still racing. A guy I know works on the pit crew. We saw him at the Nostalgia Drags in Bremerton Washington in August. He bought the old Cadillac dealership in Tacoma Washington and turned it into a drag racing museum. He had a crew that was restoring old race cars/dragsters at the same location, my neighbor was part of that crew, but with the economy that has pretty much come to a halt I think.
