Congratulations to the Regal GS Engineers!

Last updated 5 years ago

This is not your grandparent's Buick has a whole new meaning! A pair of Buick engineers piloted a stock Regal GS to a second place finish at the Nevada Open Road Challenge, finishing within .4 seconds of the 40 minute target time they set. 

Their success was based on balancing low-speed sections of the course with running the Regal at top speed. During the top speed periods a radar trap controlled by race operators verified a speed of 162 mph! 

The Nevada Open Road Challenge takes place on a remote, two-lane 90-mile-long segment of Nevada State Highway 318. Rather than a test of who finishes a course the fastest, the goal is average speed consistency. Podium finishers often are separated by HUNDREDTHS of a second! 

Take a look at the pictures from the Open Road Challenge, and of the Regal GS. Let us know if you have any questions at SweeneySales@sweeneycars.com or give us a call at 330-SWEENEY.
