Butch started racing in 1967 in the Cadett Class at Pennsboro Speedway because Dad was into racing.  They would not let Butch play football but they let him drive a race car!  His first win was in 1967 at Elkins Speedway.  Career highlights include Track Championships at I-79 Speedway, Elkins Speedway, Ohio Valley Speedway and Hilltop Speedway, winner of Buckeye Fall Classic, winner of Big Race at Hagerstown Speedway and winner of Johnnie Roberts Memorial Race.

The thrill of racing for Butch is the adrenaline rush and just loving it.  His most exciting racing moment was winning a race - any race.  If guys race you clean, just winning a race!  He's most proud of his wife and three boys!  His boys still go racing with him.

Butch's racing hero is Davey Allison.

Of racing, Butch says, "This is a good sport!  Nothing better but  maybe deer hunting!".
