Buddy Gill, Clyde, Ohio
The Gill brothers were the mechanics on their hall of fame father, Bud Gill’s modifieds/sprint cars. The Gill family fielded some of the most successful and beautiful super modifieds/sprint cars to ever hit the track. The black and orange CR Gill Construction machines carried hall-of-famer Darl Harrison to Fremont Speedway championships in 1960, 1961 and 1962. Hall-of-Famer Gug Keegan wheeled the Gill machine to the 1967 track championship, and teammate Jim Linder would claim a Fremont Speedway title in 1969 aboard a Gill sprinter. Rollie Beale would pilot a Gill sprint car to many feature wins as well. Other drivers to sit in the Gill cars were Mac Clingan and Elmer Pratt.
