The 2015 Buschur Shootout was the biggest and best one yet. Being the 23rd annual shootout, the crew at Buschur Racing have perfected the art of throwing a great race weekend. We saw plenty of low single digit passes, exciting racing, and enjoyed ourselves throughly. Look for complete coverage of the 2015 Buschur Shootout in Issue #160 of DSPORT Magazine. For the first time we’re releasing all of our footage from Round One to the Finals. No music, no graphics, just pure racing. We also cut out any breakdowns, clean-ups, and single bye runs (unless they tried to go fast)
Gideon was out to set a personal best record in his R35. He got a killer 60′ (1.286) and great 330′. Then smoke started to come out. It got worse and he crossed the centerline just before the finish as the GT-R hit the opposite wall at over 100 MPH. He walked out and is ok. Thank God

Picture a warm, spring Sunday and fill it with racing, a car show, vendors, a swap meet and food trucks. Add to this mix a group of gorgeous models and over 2,500 spectators and you’ve just imagined the spectacle that was the 2015 BorgWarner/IDRC West Coast Nationals presented by AEM Induction.
