“It’s on!”

Turbo Hot Street returns to action at the 2009 Midwest Buick Challenge.

Turbo Hot Street will be back for Round Two at the 2009 Midwest Buick Challenge in Osceola, Indiana on September 25 thru 27. THS qualifying and eliminations will be on Saturday. Exact times/ schedule to be announced.

For those that have been doing their best Rip Van Winkle imitations, Turbo Hot Street is heads-up racing for 109-block based Turbo Regals/ Grand Nationals. There are some other rules and they can be found in the following link;Official THS Rules 2009 - t6p.com - Turbo Buick Regal Resource . THS was formed with the belief that street-driven, air-conditioned, comfortable and brutally fast performance is what Buicks have always done best. This class is a showcase for these cars.

We had a full field of competitors at our debut at the BPG Nationals in August and anticipate a repeat in Osceola. Not a week has gone by that either Kip Asplund or I have not fielded inquiries about this class.

We are pleased to announce that there will be trophies provided to the winner and runner-up. Schaeffer Lubricants, Champion Racing Heads, and Adam Calcote (aka “The V8 Assassin”) have all again generously donated to THS. Additionally, there will be prizes awarded by the Midwest Buick Challenge/ Chicagoland Chapter! To everyone who has committed to support THS in one way or another so far, thank you!

We look forward to seeing all you “Pro Tree Cowboys” in Indiana in a few weeks!

Is there anything else that keeps you out of the class other than the turbo?

See ya, Kip

No , from what I am reading in the rules the turbo size is the only item. I have a GT-K 850 (72mm) 4" inlet, 2.5" out.
The rules limit the inlet to 3" and outlet to 2".
My car is not caged yet so depending on the track I would have to turn the car down or risk being thrown out.

If you want to race THS maybe you can find a turbo to borrow from someone.
We would be glad to have you.

Thanks, Kip

Thanks for the invite! My new tranny is being shipped and if Ronnie is done with my powder coating this week it may happen. Will have to see if someone has a small turbo to borrow.:biggrin:

THS rules question

I have been following this new class with interest and would like to participate in the future but I am excluded at the present since my car is a Turbo Trans Am. If nothing else I am excluded by the requirement of the 15" wheels. Of course, the stock wheels on the TTA are 16". Any possibility of including the TTAs? Thanks for the consideration.

Thanks for the interest Dean. When I wrote the rules it was my mistake for not taking the 16 wheel guys into consideration. That being said there is no problem with a person using 16s and this will be fixed in next years (2010s) rules. Now as for the TTA being included, I think that is something we can discuss for next year. One rule the would be added is that a TTA entrywould have to have a factory TTA rear end.

Take care, Kip
