September 2, 2018

Franklin and Maude Rudd were recently married and decided to spend their time at the Darlington Speedway this weekend.

DARLINGTON, S.C. - Franklin “Peanut” Rudd is a relative newcomer to the “Track to Tough to Tame.”

Franklin is also recently married to Maude Rudd.

Peanut is a diesel mechanic, but considers himself a jack of all trades.

He has been coming to Darlington Raceway for three years and has not visited any of the other NASCAR tracks.

“I love Darlington,” he said. “I love walking around meeting different people.”

Martin Truex is his favorite driver because of his driving abilities and his good nature with the fans.

Rudd has not developed any favorite memories yet, he’s still working on that.

It seems like he’ll have plenty of time for that in the future.
