The South Central Texas Chapter hosted a Buick/Oldsmobile/Pontiac (BOP) Shootout that at the San Antonio Raceway (SAR) on Friday November 3, 2006. (The SAR is located approximately 20 miles east of downtown San Antonio on IH-10 East and is a first class racing facility that holds IHRA and NHRA events throughout the year.)
We wanted to try and revive some of the good old BOP 'spirit' that used to be on the streets years ago. Racing was held in a bracket format, no heads-up. Cars did not have to be street legal, but many of the cars entered were daily drivers or street legal show cars. The event was open to any year/model as long as it was a BOP powered. There was no prize money but various trophies and gifts were awarded. SAR provided all track officials, time slips, and determined winners. The event was limited to 50 cars. This was a great opportunity to meet other BOP folks, see their cars, and take our own cars out to the track. Definitely fun for everyone!!
