Product description


"Without any question, this is a definitive work on the unexpectedly rich history of America's last automotive independent."--Jim Donnelly"Hemmings Muscle Machines" (04/26/2016)

"I was overwhelmed by the attractiveness of the cover and the magnitude of the work. All I can say is that the author has done a magnificent job and captured the essence of the American motors program and acknowledged the individuals and the work that they accomplished on behalf of that program."-- (02/29/2016)

"Any fan of AMC history, performance car history and the legends behind them will enjoy the ride with McClurg behind the controls."--Old Cars Weekly News & Marketplace (04/25/2016)

..". an interesting history of this overlooked, and successful, American brand."-- (05/12/2016)

"The History of AMC Motorsports takes a thorough look at how a comparatively small manufacturer got fully-involved in a variety of motorsports disciplines and in that process its cars and drivers turned more than a few disbelieving heads. So, if a 'little-engine-that-could-kind-of-story' is one that you like, this book is for you."-- (05/19/2016)

From the Back Cover

When thinking of manufacturer racing involvement, AMC is not one that immediately comes to mind. Yet even from the beginning of American motorsports, the companies that became AMC had some serious involvement in competition. From the early Nash and Hudson models through the muscle car era, AMC had direct involvement in racing. The success of Nash and Hudson in early NASCAR racing, AMC Javelins in Trans-Am racing, and AMC's partnerships with Mark Donahue and Roger Penske Trans-Am and 1970s NASCAR teams prove that AMC was "in it to win it."

The History of AMC Motorsports from veteran racing journalist Bob McClurg covers it all, from a Nash-American Motors corporate history, the first years of NASCAR, the 1960s efforts that included Trans-Am and drag racing Super Stock programs, to the Craig Breedlove land speed record efforts when 106 world records were shattered and covered by Hot Rod magazine. And let's not forget the 1970s Trans-Am championships with Donahue and Penske, plus the NASCAR success with Bobby Allison in the always-curious-looking Matador.

Never before has a single volume chronicled the events that encompass AMC racing history. Whether you are a hardcore racing history fan or a casual enthusiast of AMC street offerings, The History of AMC Motorsports provides a unique showcase vital to every enthusiast's library.
