Joseph Buford (born June 19, 1967) is an American former professional stock car racing driver.

Racing career[edit]

Buford began his career at Duck River Speedway in 1989. He took his father's advice (two-time Nashville Speedway USA champ James "Flookie" Buford) and started racing at Nashville in 1991. He was an instant success, winning three races and the "Rookie of the Year" honors. He moved to the premier late model division in 1992. Buford was a four-time track champion at the historic track (1998, 1999, 2000, 2002), tying Coo Coo Marlin for the most titles in track history. His 66 victories passed the long-standing Darrell Waltrip record of 55 career victories at the track. He was the 1998 Heartland Region Champion (missing the national title by only a 1/2 point). He finished second in the Heartland Region in 1999 and 2000.

Buford won two NASCAR Southern Division races. He finished third in his first NASCAR Goody's Dash Series race. He also raced in the All-Pro Series. Buford started three Craftsman Truck Series and 18 Busch Series races with little success.
