In Celebration of 25 years of Buick Race Day the Buick Performance Group was asked to join forces to create one Monster Event in 2015. This event will also celebrate the 50 years of the GS Badge. The 2015 Buick Race Day event will be held May 29th-31st 2015 at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk Ohio. At this time there will be Racing on Friday and Sunday with the 50th GS Anniversary Car Show on Saturday at the Track with a BBQ. Summit Motorsports Park is a modern facility and offer onsite RV hookups and camping. The combining of 2 events into 1 will benefit not only the participants but also the vendors and donors as there is one less event to choose from. Bill Wills and the BPG expect that by doing this we will get more entries and vendors which will help offset costs and increase payouts and promote Buick's and Fun. The BPG will be running the Car Show on Saturday and it will be a combined effort for the Race Program. If the event is a success as I am sure it will be the Track will allow the BPG run future events at Norwalk where we can have 3 days of Racing and Car Show. Hotel information will be posted as soon as possible. I feel this is a positive move for both Buick Race Day and the BPG to help keep the Buick Brand and Buick Community Alive and Kicking. This is all in the planning stages and I will keep everyone updated as to the progress such as Hotels Vendors and Pricing. the Date is firm so book your vacations this is going to be Epic.

no they are not...NTR over the last few years has let things slide...what you hear on the "net" is not always true..in fact most racers were saying their local track was worse than NTR this year.

As being a member who lives very close to Norwalk and goes to the track frequently, I can assure you it is a top notch facility and will be a great venue to hold this event. I will definitely be attending this!

Sunday is best used for a travel day for those that are further away. Any chance to race on Sat instead of Sunday? You may get more participation if folks can have a travel day

BPG is not organizing the Event. Contract is already in place with Buick Race Day and Summit Motor Sports Park. BPG is hoping to take over event in 2016. Then we will have more Control of the Schedule. Problem for next year is they have a huge points program that runs on Saturdays. I have been in contact almost everyday in regards to information. When I get it it will be shared.
