LEGENDARY PRO STOCK RACER WALLY BOOTH TO JOIN THE AMC/YA GROUP AT 2011 MCACN SHOW!

 

We are thrilled to announce that Wally Booth, legendary Pro Stock drag racer from Michigan, will be joining us November 19-20 at the  Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show. And if that isn’t enough to get your heart pumping, he will be joined by not just one, but TWO of his cool AMC Pro Stockers!

Wally Booth has seen some incredible racing in his day, running some great cars going back to 1964. When he joined forces with AMC to head up their Pro Stock efforts in the early 70’s, he had to overcome a lack of factory support, since there were virtually no aftermarket parts available, to be the first guy to put AMC on the drag racing map. Starting with a Gremlin, (a car that is certainly not the most aerodynamic car of the era), he used his extensive engine building skills to gain national attention...and plenty of respect. With the introduction of the far slicker Hornet in 1973, he found not only a quicker ride, but his first National title in 1974 in Gainesville, Florida at the Gatornationals.

 

Wally Booth will be reunited with his Gremlin and his Hornet Pro Stockers at our show this year, when they join our “AMC/Ya” display. These cars are currently owned by Don and Donnie Schmitz of Kenosha, Wisconsin. This is authentic drag racing history with a real drag racing legend! We would like to extend our sincere appreciation to Wally and the Schmitz family for helping us to continue to “raise the bar” to create the best All-indoor specialty show devoted to Muscle Cars, Dealer-built Supercars, Corvettes and in this case, Race Car history! Wally will be spending some quality time with us both Saturday and Sunday, so be sure to plan on meeting him, along with Don and Donnie Schmitz at the show.

 

Please remember to tell, or better yet, bring your friends and family to the  Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show Saturday, November 19 and/or Sunday, November 20. The future of our show is dependent on our spectator gate, so don’t keep it a secret! Advance discount tickets will go on sale soon at several of our Chicago area sponsors businesses, Colin’s Classic Auto in Milwaukee, and also directly through our website.

 

If you would like to join us to show a special car or showcase your automotive products or services, please submit your application through our website, www.mcacn.com or call me directly at 586-549-5291.

 

THANKS!
