The announcement everyone has been waiting for

Hope to see everyone there and make this the best GAD yet! Entree fees, class guaranteed payouts, awards etc will be announced soon. All sponsorships needed and appreciated, this event could not happen without everyone's support - Damian Terrell

Anyone running a class, after they get eliminated (if you do) can also make some passes like it was this year between rounds and time permitting after the racing is over for the day.  All sponsorships needed, and greatly appreciate, thank you to all of the sponsors who have already came on board. I need everyone's support to keep this event alive and going strong. Sponsor list is also currently below.

Another sponsor update for Great AMC Day GAD 2023 
This one is very special to me and means a lot to have on board once again this year. As many know, Mike's Auto Service aka Mike Luke originally started GAD and hosted it for 20+ years before I took over when he retired from hosting it. If it wasn't for Mike putting in a lot of time, organizing etc GAD would not be anything near what it is today. It means the world to me to have his support once again and hope to see him with the famous POS at GAD 23

no ideal Tony... wow, what a gas sucking rig you got there now!
But the money the fuel costs, is probably less then staying at dive motels on your adventures.
hoping to take the POS out for a test and tune this friday...
last time out with it was last GAD... i've made a few changes since then and would like to see if its dialed in yet.

technically it's a diesel sucking rig. lol

Yeah, I got it to save on hotels and make things easier. The shower, bathroom, fridge, cooktop, bed etc makes the long trips much easier.

We are in the same boat Mike, 68 needs valves check then ready to load but other than a one clutch dump on the street we are coming completely untested on it's brand new engine/trans combo 
Cookout will probably start around 6-7ish as long as I'm up there by then(traffic from Kentucky rush hour 🤦)
