As we took to the road early in the morning, we safely transported the AMX engine from Tampa to Automotive Specialists in Concord, North Carolina. Led by Keith Dorton, we are thankful to have such an esteemed sponsor on board to rebuild our engine.
Since its inception, Automotive Specialists has developed and built many different types of engines for a remarkably diverse range of racing formats. Starting on local dirt tracks around North Carolina, Keith performed work for racers such as Ralph Earnhardt, Automotive Specialists’ first paying customer. With growing success on the local short tracks came opportunities in other areas of racing.
Over the years, Automotive Specialists prepared engines and components have won races at every level. They have won in virtually all of NASCAR’s touring divisions, plus the USAR ProCup series, ASA and many other series. Automotive Specialists engines have also won many prestigious races such as the 1990 Daytona 500, the Snow Ball Derby, and the Copper Classic.
We give a big THANK YOU to Keith and his team!
