    Wed. is open for all makes and models. Friday night is open for grudge racing for all makes and models but mostly a no time shootout. I dont expect many to show except for buick owners anyway that have a different car now or their buick is apart. But the option is there this year. They can also test and tune all week. But lets be serious here its not like someone is going to tow a mustang or something to test and tune unless they are a diehard buick fan anyway. So this is just a small way to help keep costs down for the actual people that attend and not the keyboard warriors with every excuse and never show up anyway. Every decision that i have made has been for the best of the event, racers and spectators. Most of the things are even polled on facebook for a majority rule. Im just the spokesperson for what racers have wanted over the years and had a hard time getting or just getting a no answer.

    On the Sat race day can a 3.8Buick powered Camaro or Firebird compete in bracket class?

    Not an official answer but I have personally seen a turbo TA, a GN powered Mustang and a Buick powered Corvair run on Sat

    Correct. In the brackets only like years past it has to be buick powered.

    If we have enough cars that are non buick at all or buick bodied powered by something else I will have time for a separate gamblers race for them only on Saturday. This will not interfere with current and strict buick only program.

    Is there a website with hotel and golf cart info?

    I don't believe there is a "host" hotel. I've read many people stay in this area off Scottville Rd.
    There are several near the Corvette museum exit as well.
    For the carts, I see this on the GS Nationals page.

    Thank you for coming out to support. Trying to make it a fun day for all. Got some great sponsors and contributions towards the day and event. This is all about adding an extra day since we all complain the event goes so fast.
