Bupp Breaks Winless Streak

Going into the NASRAC Sunshine 600 @ Pheonix it had been 232 races since Phillip Bupp had last visited victory lane back at New Hampshire in the summer of season 9. While his Bupp Enterprises team paid visits all the time he simply could never pull off the win until last night when he finally broke through and won again for the 11th time in his AAA career. His record falls 10 races short of Elliott Henderson’s record 242 race streak. It also marks his 11th win at 11 different tracks which is most likely a record in itself.

The win has not come easy, it took determination and never giving up through good seasons and bad to finally make it back. It took him to 3 different manufacturers and a number change but finally after being a bridesmaid for so many times over the last 6 seasons he has returned to victory lane in the twilight of his career.

It’s also all but guaranteed that this season will also mark the first AAA championship for Bupp Enterprises which started back in season 8. It will not be the first one for Phillip as he won it as an owner in Season 6 when he was leader of X2X Motorsports. His two drivers sit 1-2 with 160 point cushion on 3rd place Diego Gonzalez who surprise surprise is from X2X Motorsports.
