GMC The New Title Sponsor of the WPCA

They’re back!!!

This year marks the first in a long time that GMC is back in full sponsorship mode for the World Professional Chuckwagon Association. GMC has long been the headline sponsor of the Calgary Stampede GMC Rangeland Derby and this year they have made a deal to headline the entire tour. The WPCA is a traveling road show that covers Alberta from north to south. They put on an exciting, fast, mudslinging show every night which makes GMC the perfect sponsor for the show. GMC trucks are known for their work-man-status trucks and many of the drivers are already utilizing our trucks to move their set-up’s from town to town. This year the drivers will compete for six GMC trucks all told on the tour.

Davis GMC is proud to be affiliated with this first-class association and have thrown their support behind the most personable driver on the tour, Tim Haroldson. You have to check out this awesome video our new videographer Kyle Velcoff shot of Tim’s first heat on June 7.  We are so excited and so proud of this: Half Mile of Hell Chuckwagon Races in Medicine Hat

Tim qualified for his first winner–take–all final at a major chuckwagon event in 2011 at the Capital Ex Chuckwagon Derby in Edmonton and finished a career best 15th in the World Standings. He posted 18 top ten runs including two first place runs – one at the Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede and Capital Ex Chuckwagon Derby in Edmonton – and 1 other run that cracked the top five. His wife Melissa was honored with the Ty Tournier Memorial Award in 2011 as well. Tim is a two–time champion of the Colonial Days Fair in Lloydminster, and won additional show championships during his time on the CPCA circuit at the Wainwright Stampede in 2003 and 2007 and the CPCA Lloydminster Finals in 2005. Tim started his career with the CPCA and was the recipient of CPCA Award for Excellence in Corporate Involvement in 2000 and has won many CPCA show awards for Best Dressed Chuckwagon. He was scheduled to compete at the Calgary Stampede GMC Rangeland Derby for the first time in 2004, until a pre–show injury prevented him from driving that year. Tim’s outfit also captured the CPCA’s Meadow Lake Stampede in 2007, but a pre show injury prevented him from driving and his outfit was handled by replacement driver Roger Moore. Tim and his wife Melissa make their home in Melfort, Saskatchewan.

All in all GMC is proud to be back and we look forward to a great weekend of racing. Get out their and show your support!! It’s a great time!

First Look – 2011 Buick Regal

All of us here at Davis were excited to hear we would be receiving one of the first 2011 Buick Regal’s in Western Canada, but we were all a little bit unsure of what we were going to be getting – seeing as we’d only been able to see a few photos from Auto Shows and spy shots from the internet. 

When it did arrive we were all blown away.

Based on (and almost an exact replica of) the 2009 ‘European Car of the Year’ Opel Insignia, you can see the obvious European flavor in the Regal. It is sporty yet sophisticated, and based on looks alone you could easily place it with the BMW 3-series, Audi A4, and Lexus IS series that it is here to compete with (albeit at a smaller price tag.) Have a look for yourself at the pictures and you’ll understand how far Buick has come in the last few years – the Regal continues the trend that the Lacrosse and Enclave have recently set in completely overhauling the Buick image.

But its not just the exterior styling that had our jaws dropping, opening the doors also showed the Regals European sport sedan heritage. The leather, heated seats are firm and supportive, not to mention nice to look at. The piano black interior inserts in our Regal are also a nice touch in a world where we’ve grown accustomed to wood grain. Every Regal comes standard with Bluetooth capability as well as XM Satellite radio, and there is also an available voice activated Navigation system with a 40GB hard drive available on every model.

Now comes the fun stuff – the base engine on the Regal is an Ecotec 4-cylinder engine with Direct Injection and Variable Valve Timing which produces a respectable 182-hp. Later this year, the Regal CXL Turbo will arrive, sporting a 220-hp 2.0L Ecotec with a dual-scroll turbo and intercooler for those of us who always need just a little bit more power. The CXL Turbo will also come with an available Interactive Drive Control System – which allows you to select Normal, Tour, or Sport mode depending on your current driving conditions. Each setting automatically tunes the suspension, steering, throttle and stability control systems to match your driving style.

The best part about the Regal? It’s price. It may be an Audi/Lexus/BMW fighter, but its far from the wallet hit you would expect from a European sport sedan. The CXL starts at $31,990 (our particular Regal has a price tage of $34,935) and the soon-to-arrive CXL Turbo will start at $34,990.

Think you already have a perception of what a Buick is? Come on in, we’d love to let the Regal change your mind.
