Rusty Wallace.

Watkins Glen will be alive with racing history throughout the weekend,

Am racers. The Can Am car driven by Vic Franzese will be on display at
The Center.   For more information log on to

1/23/2011   The conversion to 'Racing in Retrospect' is nearly complete.
I've updated or revised many of the pages to reflect that this site is no
longer the official website of the MASCC, my explanation and mission
statement can be found
here. I almost used this as my index but decided
it would be more politically correct to stick with R in R... Revised pages
are as follows:
Road Trips - Replaces Event Reports. Share our recent racing finds.
Event Reports is Achived and linked on the page as well.
History - This is now the Ackerman Racing Team's History, MASCC Hx is
linked as well (but you'll have to read ours to find it...)
Schedule - This will now be the 'Tentative' Schedule of events we will
attend this summer, we're 'Free Agents'.
Cars-R-Cars - Replaces the 3 classes of Members, Our Cars and some of
our Peers, added
Suzy 0, McClure 15 & Shirley 99.
Merchandise - Linked to Cafe Press so if you still want a MASCC T-Shirt
you can get one.
Contact Us - Revised.
GuestBook - Revised and Posts added.
Credits/Sources - Revised
Odds & Ends - Revised, Projects Revised and I'm just getting started...
