AMC’s racing history is chronicled in this volume recounting legendary stories of the cars and their drivers from the NASCAR circuit to the drag strip and beyond.

Veteran racing journalist Bob McClurg covers it all: Nash-American Motors’ corporate history, the first years of NASCAR, the 1960s efforts that included Trans-Am and drag racing Super Stock programs, and 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 Donohue and Penske, and finally the NASCAR success with Bobby Allison in the always-curious-looking Matador, which is also covered here.

When thinking of a manufacturer's racing involvement, AMC is not a manufacturer that immediately comes to mind. Yet even from the very beginning of American motorsports, Nash and Hudson, the companies that became AMC, had some serious commitment to motorsports.

Whether you are a hardcore racing history fan or a casual enthusiast of the AMC street offerings, The History of AMC Motorsports provides a unique showcase vital to every enthusiast's library.
