We would like to say thanks to everyone who came by the Butler Performance booth this past weekend at the Ames Performance Pontiac Nationals! There was a great crowd, great weather and a great weekend of racing and car show action. The first ever Butler Performance / Edelbrock Performance head giveaway was a HUGE success! Paul Beard from Ijamsville, MD was the lucky winner of the B.P. prepped Edelbrock heads!! Paul is a member of the Outlaw Pontiac Drag Series and both he and his wife love to race their Pontiacs. Congratulations Paul and thanks to all who came by to support and participate throughout the weekend. We look forward to seeing everyone there again next year!

Roger has always raced his car hard. Hard enough that the developers of the GT LEGENDS Game decided he had to be in the latest version. Roger is proudly sporting his Butler Performance Decals on the track, and now in the game as well!!

John Welter's Crash.
Thank you to everyone that has shown concern for John. He is fine, however the car has seen better days. A loose trans line allowed oil onto the rear tires.

The Pontiac Aftermarket Council at the PRI show in Orlando- Dec. 2006. The PAC(Pontiac Aftermarket Council) booth at the 2006 PRI show in Orlando was a very busy place this last December. With the introduction of many new traditional Pontiac parts from ALLPONTIAC, BOP Engineering, Ram Air Restoration and Butler Performance, we received much attention from the media as well as racers, street rodders and engine builders from all around the world. The most exciting new product being the first ever aftermarket forged crankshaft for the traditional Pontiac engine(pictured). We're all working hard to bring recognition to the Traditional Pontiac market as well as quality and reasonably priced performance parts.
