Buster didn't really run that long with CRA, but in his 3 best years, he won 13 CRA races including one Pacific Coast Nationals, a Spring Nationas and a Peabody Classic. He was really tough and very inventive as he came up with little improvements that increased his performances. He was a very special driver. When he retired, he supported his sons racing until he moved up to Gardnerville, NV and remodeled that home where he still is retired today. I try to visit when I'm in the area and he's still fun to be with.

Venard was an accomplished sprint car racer in the late 1970s and early 1980s, winning a number of Southern California races including the Don Peabody Classic at the Ascot Park speedway.

Buster Venard was the 1976 California Racing Association co-rookie of the year and received the association’s most improved Driver Award in 1978.
