A 5-year veteran of Riverhead Raceway, Bader, of Holstville, was the 2008 Blunderbust Most Popular Driver. In 2010 he was awarded the Blunderbust Best Appearing Award.

Bader said setting the record for the blunderbust time trials is his favorite racing memory. Through the first month of racing this year Bader is third in the blunderbust standings.

In his May 19 race Bader came in third in the 20-lap blundebust feature. He was moved back two spots after passing under the yellow line. He passed Joe Seeger, who led the first five laps, but did so under the yellow line in the estimation of NASCAR officials.

Bader said the best part of racing at Riverhead for him is being close to home and spending time with his friends and family. When he’s not on the track, he enjoys hitting the beach with friends and family.

His biggest supporters in his career have been his parents, Anna and Robert Bader, along with his girlfriend Jessica and of course, Uncle Bob.
