Summit Motorsports Park aka Norwalk Raceway Park, Norwalk, OH this message is an update as of 1/9/2009

Mark your calendars for May 29-May 31 for Buick Race Day 2009. On Friday, May 29, we have the track rented from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, more details coming soon! then we will be testing and tuning from 5:00 PM to 11:00 PM with the regular test and tune program at the track, $12 to race, car and driver, $12 for spectators. Child (6-14) $5. We will also have a Buick Gambler's Race, 80% payback, Pay $10 in the staging lanes, more payback if sponsored! Saturday car show and hotel arrangements are pending, more info soon.
Sunday, Buick RaceDay 2009 basically the same, but adding a FWD Buick Powered Race for any FWD car with a GM 3800 engine. Swap Meet also, and vendors more than welcome!

We are also hoping to run TSO qualifying on Friday during the day. We will still have qualifying and tech on Sunday if you can't make it Friday.
 
Buick Race Day Info

Here's the deal, Friday is a track rental, there will be no concessions, so we need to bring goodies to eat for lunch and dinner for anyone staying over to race in the Buick Gamblers Race $10 pay back to be determined based on entries around 7:00 PM during the track's regular test and tune which you have to pay $12 to enter.
I have a hook up for some pull pork bbq from Flint, I can get fairly reasonable, will need a grille to warm up. Anyone that doesn't want to bring a food goodie to share can throw $5 in to cover costs.
Also need help at the track, on Friday, entrance folks to take money, pre-entry cards and put # on cars, folks to run the burn out box/starting line, and folks to run the printer at the starting line and write car #'s on time slips. if everyone would volunteer an hour or so to one of these details would be awesome!
You wanted it we are giving you the chance to test and tune, etc, please plan on helping out,
Any questions, email me!
See you next week!
You can also invite your other race car friends, chevy, mopar, mudstangs to join us on Friday, they just need to pay the $30 at the gate, and help out with track stuff, gate, staging, timeslips, etc would be nice, all hands on deck and bring some stuff to eat!

hey Bobby, what's up bud. Question, are we still limited to an 88 size turbo for this race, even if car meets all other TSO guides. I still run the PT91.5? Stupid question probably

Anyone know if small dogs (lap dog) are allowed at the track? I didn't see it on the Norwalk Racetrack's site. My wife wants to bring the dog rather than leave it locked in the laundry room all day.

Thanks.

I know my large (120#) lap dog will be there:eek: Not a problem taking pets to the track other than it is all asphalt. He liked it better when it was grass, come to think of it so did I :(

Thanks Bobby. Question, what is TSO "Outlaw" trim all about. I see slightly faster times when it says Outlaw next to TSO sometimes? I know what TSO stands for, but not the "Outlaw". THanks

big gun

Bobby,
I do hope when you cool some you may reconsider. We tried our best to talk it up and coax some of the big iron out. We just new "Big Al" would show and were sorely dissapointed when he didn't. I can understand Len Freeman not showing, long, long tow and expensive. Thank you so very much for paying the total promised payout, outstanding person to do that. We did enjoy the excellent facility and the friendship shown to us by you and all your crew, great gang.
Please keep up the spirit of BUICK.

until we meet again,

bob and trampess
