James J. Buick (born December 14, 1940) is a former American racing driver from Omaha, Nebraska who competed in the CART series in 1981. He started four races with a best finish of 16th and failed to qualify for the Indianapolis 500 in a 7 year old Chevrolet–powered Eagle. Buick again attempted but failed to make the Indy 500 in 1983 in a Chevrolet-powered 3 year old Penske chassis. With the formation of the Indy Racing League in 1996, the then 55 year old Buick attempted to qualify for the series' first race at Walt Disney World Speedway in a 1992 Lola, but was unable to complete his drivers' test and thus was unable to qualify. He still earned $10,000 for his entry.[1]
