01/01/06 Russ Dodge This photo of Budd Olsen in the Dick Cozze 44 was taken at Bridgeport Speedway. Remember later Budd wrenched the 44 for Frank Cozze. Budd won a feature at Bridgeport in this car and I would guess it might be the last one or one of the last features Budd won. Without looking it up, I think it was in 1973 when Bridgeport ran a full season under the promotion of Leon Manchester. Remember B.O.S.S. and Budd's home were only a few miles from Bridgeport off of Rt.295.

How nice it is that the Eastern Motorsports Press Association is inducting Dick Cozze as a car owner into its Hall of Fame in January. Thanks, Russ Dodge
03/18/06 Walter Onora Budd always built neat looking coupes. One of my initial favorites when I first went to Flemington was Budd Olsen and that "Lightning Zero" sweeping around the outside of the track!!
