Canadian Racing Legend “Buddie” Boys Born - March 19, 1933

March 19, 1933 - October 2, 2010 
George William “Buddie” Boys
Home: Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
This Canadian auto racing legend was driving delivery trucks in Moose Jaw, Sask., when he was 10. Boys went on to race stock cars, sprint cars, midgets, modifieds and supermodifieds on dirt tracks, paved tracks and road courses all over North America, including three NASCAR Cup starts.

He was the father of Trevor Boys, who raced on the NASCAR Winston Cup circuit for several years during the 1980s, and the grandfather of Wheeler Boys, who’s now making a name for himself in west coast racing circles.

On October 2, 2010 "Buddie" Boys died after a courageous battle with cancer.
