It was cold and windy on Saturday. After a week of solid rain I was surprised there were as many cars as there were. I am already counting the days until the 2019 race. No lack of room for cars or camping at Cordova.

The AMC Races was the best AMC event I have ever attended !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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,

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.

Been going for 20 years but missed last 3 years (not counting last year which did not happen).  This event was great as big as 2000 when all the east coast guys used to come.  Great cars and lots fun.  Guy rides in on a Harley Saturday morning wearing chaps (kind of cold) to drive his old car that he sold 1 year ago.  He then wins super pro and runners up in quick 8.  Goes to AMC eliminator and wins it all, with a stick shift Lenco transmission car, they could not have scripted it any better than that!!  Thanks Shannon and Bobby for all your help and time it was great!! Thanks to Scheiner's for cooking a great lunch on Friday!!

Actually, last year did happen.  We had like 4-5 cars and like 10 people but it did happen.

I'm planning on heading out early Saturday morning. Look for the R/W/B '69 AMX.

See y'all then!

Tried to get the trailer out the back yard but we've had so much rain the last few days I got the truck stuck. Spent an hour getting it out. Think I'm going to listen to fate and sit this year out.
