Charlotte Speedway had a mascot that was a cheetah. Well, they took this mascot to other tracks as a draw to get more fans into the stands.
Tiny Lund & Buddy Baker were in Nashville for a race and the cheetah was making an appearance as well. Buddy and Tiny had been at a beer party. Tiny slipped away with out Baker noticing and put the cheetah in Buddy’s room. Buddy decided he had enough and went into his room to go to bed.
Buddy sleeps like many people in his birthday suit. As Buddy was drifting off to sleep, he heard a PURR. He turned his head and the cheetah was in bed with him with it’s head on the pillow. Buddy was face to face with the cheetah and not real happy. Buddy leapt out of bed and took off convinced the cheetah was after him for a meal.
Buddy said the sound of Tiny laughing was ringing in his ears as he ran down the hall. Unfortunately he was still in his birthday suit.
