    The goal of combining Buick Race Day and The BPG Nationals is to eliminate and extra "Buick" themed event. Move the BPG event to a better facility. This will be the last year Bill Wills will be running Buick Race Day turning over the Event to the BPG in 2016.

    Lets make this 25th Anniversary of Buick Race Day a great one and show the track that The BPG can continue this tradition.

    Can't lie.. That was pretty dang funny! It will be fixed before then and I'll get a proper run time!


    But if it starts to leak again I'll make it my weekend duty to park next to you every day, just so you can remember me.

    Yup, I am also at the BW. Plan to drive the 65 down again, with or without a rear gear change. Maybe gas will still be cheap next spring.

    I have to regretfully inform you that "This Guy" won't make it this year. Made it 6 years in a row and that streak has come to an end. Hopefully I will make it in 2016.

    In past years you had to pay the spectator fee for that day to get in the track. To see the show, racing, swap meet, didn't matter. It was the entry fee to get into the track where all the action was. This year being at Norwalk it may be set up differently, but in the past you paid the entry fee as a spectator.

    Ok, I was thinking the show would be at Arby's again, fee appropriate if show is at the track.

    Thanks for the clarification Sean. I wasn't sure if it'd be at the track this year with the new arrangement. Arbys it is!
