Kathan, Buster



            Buster had nothing but bad luck in 2010....it seemed that every great night ended with him caught up in someone else's mess.  He returns to the Wells River Chevrolet Coupes with his lucky #13....I expect to see him in Victory Lane a few times this season!  Buster's struggles did not go unnoticed as he was presented with the First Annual John Poor Memorial Award, given to a driver for achievements throughout the year that may not necessarily be reflected in the points standings.  A very fitting choice, I think!
