NASCAR National Modified Champion
Bergman aka, Bugs Stevens started his racing career while he was serving in the
military using the name "Bugs" Stevens, as the military frowned upon
racing. Bugs won the NASCAR Modified Championships in 1967, 1968, 1969 and
for a 10 year period between 1966 and 1975 never finished lower than 6th in
NASCAR National Modified Points. "Bugs" won 4 Stafford
Championships and is the only driver to win Stafford Championships on both
Dirt & Asphalt, winning the 1966 Championship, the last year Stafford was
dirt, without a feature victory. Bugsy's other Stafford
Championships where in 1968, 1971 and 1974 on the asphalt. Bugs is the
all-time winner at Stafford with 73 Modified victories.
Bugsy can still be found around the pit areas of Northeast Race Tracks during the summer and attends the NEAR Hall-of-Fame Banquet every year in February. Most of the winter he can be found in Florida on his boat, shrimping! One of the Clown Princes' of Auto Racing is still Clowning and still a Prince.
