I thought the temp was nice out, but I am adjusted to cool temps from living quite a bit North of the track. Many people are already looking forward to 2019! Thank You for attending! SH

Total blow out.

I'll be there next year and every year after. Heck, you can tell AMC stories in the rain under the pavilion. Nothing to a bit of rain and it was not enough to dampen AMC SPIRIT.

YOU NEED TO ATTEND AND BE A SPONCER NEXT YEAR !!!

Having AMC Fun,
Ollie

For everyone that didn't make it to the event you really missed out. We had some rain in the afternoon on Friday but that didn't stop people from buying parts at the swap meet or the countless new friends that people made from hanging out under cover from the rain. The swap meet was amazing with excellent prices on much needed parts that I needed and my friends bought. Thank you vender's for comming out and getting parts in our hands. The picnic was delicious with great cooks cooking burgers, hotdogs and sweetcorn, had all the fixings. Saturday was a great day with many cars in the show and watching AMC's tear it up on the track was fun for everyone. We had the track and facilities all to ourselves as the AMC RACES rented the track for it's event. A very big thank you to Shannon, Bobbie and Stephan Halverson for organizing and putting the event on. Thank you to all the people who stepped up and donated to the event, donated to the picnic and the many volunteers who helped make this show great. I as many others are looking forward to the 2019 AMC RACES and hope to see everyone again and those who didn't make it.
 

Thank You for attending and your kind words, good to hear you found some much needed parts too. SH

Thanks to Scheiner's for cooking a great lunch on Friday!!
 

Bob was on his game for sure! It's great to hear you got a chance to attend, we'll see you in 2019. SH

The AMC RACES 2018 event was great! Lots of Show cars, lots of Race cars, lots of cool and rare parts in the swap meet, and lots of AMC people to enjoy a good time with. It was a little damp at times on Friday, however that didn't stop anyone from browsing the swap meet, finding those parts they needed, checking out the cars on the show field, enjoying the excellent food at the big picnic, getting their Race cars judged under the roof, attending a "How To" meeting for beginner racers, getting Race cars teched in to race, or just simply enjoying the company of fellow AMC people. All throughout the evening it was clear, and everyone had a nice time visiting. Saturday morning brought with it a nice dry day as well. Show cars parked in the grass, and people cleaned them up to be judged, before going off to get breakfast at the trackside café. Race cars that were teched in filled the lanes at 9, to run test and tune till 12:30. Others that needed to be teched in, jumped in the lanes too once they were all set.  The swap meet was in full swing with more people setting up shop that had drove in overnight. The Car Show was going throughout the day with many people enjoying the beautiful cars. At 12:30 the racing stopped for a drivers meeting, at 1:30 the Race eliminations began. There was some great drivers, and cars running the numbers! The racing program finished with the top AMC Eliminator shootout at 4:40 till 5. The car show had come to an end as well, it was time for awards and door prizes at 5:30. Awards packed the pavilion and surrounding areas with AMC people!  After awards it was time for dinner for many, prepared by the Schneider brothers at the track! Then on to an evening of laughter and good stories. AMC RACES 2018, It's a good time for a great time! If you stayed home this year, for whatever reason, I invite you to attend next year.  We'll see you all at AMC RACES 2019! SH
