Buick Performance Group - BPG / 2015 Buick Race Day and BPG to Combine
« on: August 12 2014, 08:33:15 PM »
sorry I have been slacking on this board
 :021: 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.

Buick Performance Group - BPG / 2013 Buick Performance Group Event
« on: February 07 2013, 07:28:23 PM »
The Buick Performance Group invites you to attend our 2013 Event August 2nd and 3rd At National Trail Raceway in Hebron Ohio. This will be our 9th annual event. We cater to all makes and models of Buick's to celebrate the Buick performance and style that Buick has provided since 1903. We are a non-profit group that provides a venue for Buick's and Fun. The Key word being Fun. We have provided in the past few years many themed events including the GSX Reunion, Stage 1 convention, Turbo Trans Am Reunion and 25th Grand National GNX Anniversary. We have also provided Tech Seminars featuring Buick Engineers and production staff involved in the Buick Brand at the Event. This years event is a Block Party Theme. All makes and models are welcome.We have a new Host Hotel The Newark Metropolitan Hotel which is a full service 5 star Hotel featuring 24 hour Room service full restaurant and Bar. The City has also closed off the street in front of Hotel for Thursday and Friday night for our cruise in featuring a BBQ and on Friday night a live Band. At our 2012 Event we paid out $12000 in cash and $4000 in gift certificates to Racers and Car Show participants. This was one of the largest payouts at a Buick event in many years. By Attending this event you also provide monies to other Buick events such as the GSCA Quick 16...Midwest Buick Challenge...NE GS/GN Club. Buick Race Day...MAGNA point series. This makes the BPG unique in giving back to the Buick Community. When you attend a BPG event you will feel like have a question we will answer it. We do listen. Most of you have seen what the BPG has done for the Buick Community since I became Chairman reaching out to other groups to promote Buick's and Fun and sending the message that we can co-exist and support each other. Bridges have been crossed and fences mended over the past five years. Jim Weise offered to send this e-mail to the members and that shows the type of Community we have. We are small in the car world but have big hearts. I hope to see some new faces in 2013 and hope you can attend. for more detailed information you can visit the BPG section on or visit or our face book site Buick Performance Group or contact me gbsean via PM or e-mail at

They are in the process of setting the BPG up as an Official Car Group and I will post when that is done. This is not only open to Turbo Cars but all makes and models of Buick. This will be a great event to help promote the Buick Brand. The more cars that are registered under the BPG the bigger the Tent we get min 25 cars.  You do not need to be a BPG member to attend. This is open to all Buick lovers not matter what club affiliation. I have already reached at to John Csordas from the Northeast GS GN Club and they are on board as well as Jim Chardrue from MAGNA and they will both help getting Buick's to attend...I will post more details as I get them,,,,please do not register now until the group registration is set up...

IHADAV8 Playground / once again my trailer bit me
« on: August 11 2012, 03:00:51 PM »
it is all my fault as I forgot to close the hitch on the truck...I had also taken the chains as I was backing Elise off the trailer the front rose and came off the ball...I thought the ramps had come off and was waiting for front of car to drop and the brakes would stop the slide...but trailer was hind site I should of put in drive and gone forward on trailer and the rear of trailer would of struck the garage wall...but alas Elise was only about 5 mph and i should again of taken my foot off brake and I am sure damage would of been less...anyway a claim has been filled and damage does not appear that bad, will need a new trunk lid and I hope rear bumper can be I learned a few things....make sure ball is closed...keep chains attached...and keep brake away cable attached..

Buick Performance Group - BPG / 2013 BPG Event information
« on: August 09 2012, 07:26:54 PM »
The 2013 Event will be at National Trail Raceway Friday August 2nd and Saturday August 3rd. We did look at other tracks and they were almost Double what we are paying now and did not include such amenities as the Jegs Suite, onsite Security at no extra charge, Golf Cart Rental as well as other amenities. We would have to hope for Double the car count or increase our ticket costs and in this economy neither was an option. Hours of operation will be from 8am to 8pm this gives the BPG enough time to run the event and You to get back to town to eat and socialize which is a big part of the event
 The Host Hotel will be the Newark Metropolitan with the Hampton Inn as a overflow hotel. The Newark hotel is only 3.5 miles away. This H
 otel has onsite a restaurant, a bar, multiple conference rooms, 24hr Room service. Outdoor eating area. We would once again like all trailers to be left at the Track security will be provided. The Hotel has proposed this package of $88 per night which includes a complimentary breakfast This is a sit down buffet style with real plates and silverware and 2 drink Coupons per night. The Hotel is Fine with our parking lot activities
 The Cruise in. I hope to be able to close off the street in front of Hotel and arrange the cruise in to be held there they have diagonal parking and street is 1 block long.
 More Details will be provided
 We are also looking to do 2014 at Salem to mark the 10th Anniversary of the BPG and we are in negotiations with the track to try and lower the rental costs.
 Looking forward to next year

IHADAV8 Playground / Tim My Youngest clean Elise for BPG
« on: July 29 2012, 08:16:16 PM »
He was a great help today...organi zed my tools and helped get Elise Ready for BPG

 The first 20 minutes of filmmaker Andrew Filippone Jr.’s feature-length documentary will be screened for the first time at the Buick Performance Group’s BPG Nationals next month.
 Buick’s menacing monochromatic black Grand National and GNX are many things to many people. To some, they are simply cool rides. Others see them as the answer to: What would Darth Vader drive? To rockers George Thorogood & the Destroyers, the GN was Bad to the Bone.
 And to CAR and DRIVER's Tony Assenza who, after road testing a GNX, wrote: “It’s an ax-wielding barbarian laying waste to everything in its path. It rockets to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and squirts through the quarter-mile in 13.5 seconds at 102 mph!”
 Andrew Filippone Jr. sees Buick’s uncharacterist ic GN and GNX iteration black cars as more than merely modern muscle. “They’re survivors,” he says. “These cars were limited in so many ways – styling, pedigree, chassis, cubic inches – and yet they transcended all of that. In spite of all the obstacles, all of the unfortunate circumstances, they rose.” He respectfully tags the Bad Boys from Flint,  “strange & curious misfits.”
 Filippone has spent four years tracking down GN and GNX owners, racers and collectors, media who road tested the cars, and the key players responsible for engineering, styling and marketing at Buick & GM. He steers BLACK AIR into novel territory for a car film, exploring issues of culture, social class, inheritance, and privilege ingrained in the turbocharged V6 Buicks, and away from the usual focus on mechanics and performance. Yet, there’s no shortage of GNs and GNXs doing what they do best – smoking tires and intimidating people - in this feature-length documentary!
 The first screening of an excerpt from BLACK AIR will be shown at the BPG Nationals on August 4 at National Trail Raceway in Hebron, OH. This year BPG is celebrating The Class of 1987, the last year for Grand Nationals and GM G-Body models and the only year for GNX production.
