East Coast AMC Day is scheduled for September 29, 2018

We are featuring a Match Race between A.H Adkins and Barry Allen.

We have a Purse of $500 for a minimum of 8 registered racers.

Racing open to AMC Powered and AMC Bodied cars.

Car Show and Vending are also on the schedule

Giving Away Gas Cards to 1 Racer, 5 Show Cars and 1 Vendor.

Flyer is on the Potomac Ramblers Facebook and on MASON Dixon Dragway's Site:

It is in our current newsletter and being distributed to the other clubs.  We are sharing the track with the Pontiacs so it may be possible that there will be an AMC VS Pontiac Finale.  

Pleas add to your calendars and plan to attend.

"Racing open to AMC Powered and AMC Bodied cars."

I am not a racer so it really does not directly affect me but
non AMC powered cars competing for award money at an AMC
event seems to defeat the purpose somewhat.

I know that this issue has been a point of contention at other
AMC events over the years and would like to hear what the merits of this is
other then the potential of one or two additional cars.

I think of us as progressive regarding the motor combinations in our cars.  

I would love to replace my Battery, engine, trans, rear end and gas tank with a drop in electric solution from TESLA or GM or Ford or Chrysler.  If they could make a bolt in solution, I would definitely consider going electric for my daily driver.  They could even replace my brakes with a regen system.  I am sure my Gages, wiring and electrical would be replaced as well.  (I don't want all my cars built like this but one would be fun!LOL and probably fast if I could get it to hook up)

I like seeing and hearing 6 cylinder race cars, too.  Someday I want to see a turbocharged AMC 6 going deep into the brackets taking down everyone in the other lane.  NOS, superchargers, aluminum blocks, carbon fiber bodys, 6-71 and 8-71 blowers and even High Pressure Compressed AIR setups are fair game at the Track.  If one guy can go 7s some of the time and the other guy can go 12.30 all of the time, the king of the bracket will be Mr. Consistent.

As for Race Cars, this is bracket racing.  It is how good you and your car are on the nice sunny day at getting down the track in the time that you say you can complete a quarter mile is what counts.  

If we get enough participation, we will have more than one class but over the last few years, we haven't had that.  We offered a Trophy Class and had one entrant.  We have a couple members with GM powered AMC Race Cars who are track regulars and very consistent.  

We don't mind living a little out here on the East Coast.  On the track, when the hood is down, It looks like an AMC and runs like an AMC.  We have seen a Hemi, a LS and a few 350's over the years. 

One year, I hope to see a Corvette with an Aluminum AMC Motor flying down the track.  I hope the owner tells it is way faster than it ever was with a GM motor! 

This year, we are going to see A.H Adkins and Barry Allen Match Race.  Two Low 9 / High 8 second cars showing us how AMCs go fast.  I hope we inspire a few more people to go racing!
