    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.

    Brad,

    I saw those dates listed, but further down the string, there was mention of the possibility of the dates changing because of a track conflict, but no update was ever posted that I could find. Just want to make sure I have it right.

    Thanks,

    Ron

    The dates went back to the May 29-31st for this event. There was a conflict then it went back to the original dates.

    Is anybody thinking about racing at the regular Norwalk race on Saturday? It looks like they may get a big crowd plus they are having a big Jr. Dragster race. Has anybody done this before?

    Mike, I have a few times, they use a punch card for time trials so everyone gets the same amount of runs, it does get very crowded. the run schedule is on their web site. And if you do run you can leave your stuff there for Sunday, but only if you race on Saturday.

    Thanks for the info. Now that the show is back to the Arby's I figure I'll take it easy and just hang out there.

    Ajesh, the Norwalk Police keep a close watch on us, and we have never had any issues in 24 years of racing at Norwalk. The hotel was to get back with me on additional security as it seems there may be many more folks this year.
