    I will say, and this is by no means directed towards you personally, as I said the same back in '17 after not attending the Nationals for 20 years, that the car show part seems to be an afterthought (one indication merely being where the show classes are placed on that page) but it has always been a racing centered event so...

    Very few people, including many receiving awards, hang around that late for the awards yet people are willing to trailer their cars hundreds or even thousands of miles to display them. Most don't do it for the awards so fair enough however IMHO the awards should begin @ 4:00 when results are posted and ea. car receiving one should be allowed to make a timed pass if desired but by 5:30 the track crew is putting everything away.

    Then racing can then resume if desired & if time allows. Give the show cars an hour of respect in lieu of the racing. Also, the circle track area should be off limits to racing during the show on Friday and the Concours class should be located w/in the circle track area and not in the grass along the access roads where it would be too easy for something to happen and for a car to get damaged. It would also seemingly make judging them easier. Finally, IMHO, there should also be a specially designated parking area (maybe where the Concours cars would be if moved) for people who bring their non show-worthy cars so everyone can view all of those cars as well in one area instead of them being scattered about.

    Maybe I'm off base here. If so, I'll apologize in advance. It's a culture that IMHO has existed regarding the Nationals for a long time and isn't fair to those showing their cars.

    Ok last chance if you are bringing your 1970-1972 GSX to the GS Nationals in a few weeks and have not let me know or registered, please let me know asap, need to make sure we have room for everyone and where they want to be, concours, peer judged, display only or survivor, we also will have some guests from Hagerty that want to do an article for their Drivers Club Magazine which is way cool. Looking for responses from Duane Heckman, Ken Lisk, James Lumb, Rick Miller, Richard Teague, Bill Van Matre, Chuck Rosa and some others that I think are coming, like Mike T and P Vilser. Everyone that brings their GSX will get a commemorative license plate for the event as well as other goodies as long as they last. email me at buickracerATcomcast.net

    I’ve been coming to the GS Nats for about 35 years missing only a very few. And, I applaud those dedicated few over the years, who have lent their time and love for our Buick’s towards making the Nats a great event.
    But I too have felt that the show winners haven’t received enough love when they are announced at the starting line late in the day. The gathering of people observing the awards has been small in comparison to the number of spectators observing the race program earlier.
    I can’t offer a solution but it would be nice if many more folks could witness their victory pass down the 1/4 mile for all the hard work it took to make them show winners.
    Looking forward to another fine Nats in BG this year.

    I’m fine,
    Getting my second shot tomorrow. Neither myself or the car is ready so it will have to be another year.

    Too much going on right now.

    I did my best, but #277 won't be attending. Every time I made progress, something else reared it's head and I was farther behind than when I started.
    Now, if only there was a LeSabre Grand National class...

    Bring the LeSabre Grand National. I would love to see it

    Roberta,

    Do you have an official count of GSX at the event? I think I counted 60 on Friday between the display, concourse, survivor and other show classes.
