God knows how Bud the Builder doesn't hear us coming. As we hug Turn 10, he hoves into view, 20-feet high on his yellow dinosaur. He doesn't hang about up there, not with so much mud to shift. His ride is in fact a giant peeler, which drags its belly along the earth to scoop up soil before speeding off to dump it.
There are 160 guys like Bud, working 10 hours a day, six days a week. They drive 50 machines, from heavy rollers to diggers with sawtooth buckets that claw the earth until it cracks.
