BARBERVILLE, FL — Feb. 11, 2019 — During Opening Ceremonies for Night 7 of the 48th annual DIRTcar Nationals Buzzie Reutimann received his trophy for winning the DIRTcar Southeast Championship in his iconic 00 UMP Modified. Racing for six decades, this adds to an already impressive list of accomplishments for the 77-year-old Zephyrhills, FL native.
“That is great. I didn’t expect this tonight. I really didn’t,” said Reutimann. “I know that some people up there from New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania like I talk to a lot. I want to thank you people for coming out tonight you’re the ones up there that make this all worthwhile. It wouldn’t be no fun if you wasn’t there. I love you and I thank you for being a great part of my life. “
