Buddy Antunez- An old minicycle magazine article called Buddy Antunez “The Youngest Racer.” At 3 years old, that isn’t too much of a stretch. In 1976, Buddy lived on a street with many motorcycle-riding enthusiasts. In fact, Eddie Lawson lived just two blocks away! So it was no surprise to Buddy’s dad when he began asking if he could have a bike of his own. His dad surprised him with a Honda MR50, and that was the start of something big for the guy we all know as the Bud Man. It wasn’t long after he got the bike that Buddy and his father started going to local races on the weekends.
