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 qualify. He still earned $10,000 for his entry.
