All American Shootout - August 9-11 2013 - Gateway Motorsports Park


The Gateway Buick Performance Enthusiasts are pleased to announce Buick Turbo Regal race classes to be held at the first annual All American Shootout at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, IL (St. Louis) on August 9-11.

The program is expected to have over 600 cars participating in both race and show. The event is primarily for American muscle cars from for some of the less popular makes. (i.e. Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, AMC, etc.)

Gateway Buick Performance enthusiasts have been assured that time will be offered in the program for some popular TR classes: TSM, THS, and TSO. There will also be a GS class offered. A full bracket and class racing program is offered as well.

The track is central to the midwest, a short drive for many racers around the country, and is a NHRA national event facility. The surface is well prepped, repaved frequently, and is up to the standards required for the fastest cars in drag racing. No slippery surfaces here!

We are actively seeking racers, TR class sponsors, etc.

We've had commitments made by over *30* Buick cars so far. Every class stated will be run.

Looking for more participants, as well as more sponsors.

This a great track with a fresh surface. Track is within sight of the Gateway Arch. This will be a great opportunity for all Buick racers to show all the "brand X" crown what we are about!
Its ON! Less than a month to go, and we need racers, sponsors, and show cars to be part of this event!

TSO, TSM, THS, and a GS class will be held at this event. Each class winner will receive a winner's jacket and a plaque! Sponsors are starting to add to the pot. So far the Buick Performance Group and HRPartsNStuff are on board!

Class racers get entry for Saturday and Sunday's race program together for $60. T&T/bracket will be available for $40 on Friday as well.

If you will be entering, please let us know along with your class. Address any Buick class / race questions to

For clarity:

There are three TR-specific classes being run: TSO, TSM, THS. If you have a TR qualified to run in one of these classes, it will be $60 for Saturday and Sunday (one fee covering both days). The Friday T&T is $40. You may also run in other money classes if you wish.

The "Buick bracket" class is our all GS bracket class. If you have any Buick V8 powered GS of any year you may enter this class. Again, it will be $60 for Saturday and Sunday (one fee covering both days). The Friday T&T is $40. You may also run in other money classes if you wish.

Any other Buick vehicles (Buick powered or not) are encouraged to attend. You can show or race in any of the other classes appropriate for your vehicle. We can not have classes for everything, and we do not know what the attendance will be.

Note that the weather for this weekend looks great, and any rain expected will be limited. The pits are fully paved. The track is a national event NHRA track, and is able to deal with cleanups and track drying very well.

Each of the TR/GS classes will have a plaque and jacket from the track as a prize. Other cash and gift certificate prizes will be awarded in these classes as well.
We want to thank our sponsors:

HR Parts N Stuff -
Arizona GN -
A & B Autobody - - Troy, IL
GRP Power Systems - - Bethalto, IL

Weather for Friday may have rain in the early morning, but weather is supposed to clear as the day goes on. Saturday and Sunday look to be clear. Winds each day should be very light, and daytime temps should be in the mid 80s. There is flooding due to recent storms on I-44 southwest of the St. Louis metro area near Rolla / St. James, MO. If you are coming from the southwest, please check your route before you travel.

We encourage the Buick racers to pit near the speaker tower in the center area of the pits. We will try to hold some spaces early Friday and early Saturday, but there are many other racers and we can not hold spaces forever.

Note that our TR classes will be "heads up", and our "GS" class will be a bracket class for ANY Buick powered V8 vehicle. All other Buicks are encouraged to run in the bracket classes, and our class racers may run in any other class they wish provided they pay for that class as well.

All classes will have T&T and Qualifying runs on Saturday, and at least one run plus competition on Sunday.

Please call the track at (618) 215-8888 with any questions, or email the club at and we will try to answer them. This mail will be checked on race days as well.
Per David Day:

We have $1000 dollars worth of cash and prizes to go to the winners and the track is going to give the winners a jacket and plaque!! Hope we have a good turnout.
