View Full Version : The race for the "BELT"!
07-08-2008, 12:31 PM
The MidWest Mafia is holding a Buick bracket race:
September 20-21 (The race will be on the 20th)
Do you really need to ask?
This is an event for Buick racers, by Buick racers.
The winner gets to take home the "Belt", a fitting tribute to the past and present winners!
Let's try to make the other racers jealous:
We are hoping to get as many cars there as we can.
We will be racing for the belt on Saturday.
John is workng out the details on a King Street type race on Sunday for those of you that can stay.
We felt it may be more fun to race and then "bench race" the night away, and make it a bit more friendly for those that need to get back on Sunday.
In addition to the belt it is looking like the Buick GS club will put up $500 cash and perhaps some prizes.
We will be staying at the Platte Valley Inn, same as last year.
Phone #: 970-474-3336 or 800-562-5166
There will be a BBQ on Saturday night, a friend of mine is trying to get 25# of natural raised ground beef to help out(he works a ranch near Wiggins). We may take a collection to help defray costs.
Beer will be flowing.
Julesburg track (http://www.julesburgracing.com/A_Map.html)
The motel, Platte Valley Inn, is located near the intersection of I-76 and hwy 385.
Other details soon

Why is it you Flatlanders always talk and talk.......
Gunn, the Belt will StAY on the Mountain, just not in the same Condo......
Brad hope to see you there. Rob and The rest of the Mid West Crew....Hopefully you all can make the trip.
Maybe we should make it Team Mountain against the Wannabeee's.
Jim great job on your win last year, but it is time the Belt came back to North side of the tracks...

Is this a Buick body and Buick Power Race for the Belt? or are we looking at Buick Body cars with SBC,BBC,SBF,BBF,SBM,BBM, :DOU::SPANK: :BLAST:
:TU: The saying goes you want to Race Buick Powered Cars How many Extra Stock Blocks do you. have?. :LAUGH:
Hows the car running, did you make TNT last nite?
As for the answer to your question, the event is open to All Buick's. We changed the rules a few years back, we allow club members to race with the Buicks, even if the dont have a Buick.....
The Belt can be won by a Buick powered Vette, or a Ford powered Regal or a Nail Head in a 40' Coupe.
We are looking for car count, and the frienship the Buick community brings to the track.
Hope to see you there, maybe your dad could bring the Blue car.

I see maybe I should work on putting my BBF or the BBM Engine in. No TNT maybe the Next week TNT
Just me but if you think the Ford or the Mopar will stay together better, do it....
With all the time you have in your BBB you may want to see if it will stay together....For a couple runs at Best....
Smack, back at ya Rufes.....

Hopefully you can show up to the event. We posted this here in hopes of getting cars to the event. Not to start a posting war......
Please take it as information for the rest of the world that may want to come.....
We have fought over the crossbreeding I did for years now, as you and everyone around me knows my love for Buicks. I did sell out to go Fast.
So to all, please show up and have fun there will be plenty of Buicks to look at and admire. With mine being the only crossbreed Buick there. I am sure the rest of my cars and the guys I race with will support the
Buick Power we all love......

Once again, I have updated the opening post with the track location and motel location.

Am I right to assume we are running a 1/4 mile race? I see they put a 9.50 limit on the 1/4 and 5.00 on the 1/8. Brad.
09-07-2008, 10:57 AM
We're running all out for a 1/4 mile! :WOW:
09-13-2008, 01:15 PM
I may just head on over Sat to watch the fun. Depends on how I feel as I am healing 4 broken ribs.
What time does the fun start???
09-14-2008, 07:20 PM
We are planning to arrive at 8:00am.
The racing will begin whenever everybody feels ready, probably around noon.
Hope to see you there.

By golly, I recognized two of the suspects!
Er, what was the outcome??
Thank you for reaffirming that there is life west of the Pecos in the Buick community!! :HI:

Who Won the Deal how fast were they going? What was the Fastest Pass of the Day?.
03-07-2009, 04:51 PM
Is there going to be a 09 race for the belt?
I may bring the wagon to play.
04-02-2009, 04:08 PM
More than likely, there will be a 2009 event for the "Belt."
More details if and when we have them.
