The official kick off for the 2015 A.M.E.C. Ice Racing Championships will begin with our A.M.E.C. Annual Meeting to be held at the Villago Pizzeria & Ristorante at 175 Lake Road on Ballston Lake, NY on Saturday night January 3, 2015 at 6:00pm. This will hopefully be the site of one or two of our events this year if ice conditions permit. The A.M.E.C. Annual Meeting is held each year on the first Saturday following New Years Day to convene the members of A.M.E.C. so they can converse about the upcoming season and then cast there votes for the Election of Officers to determine the leadership of the club for the next year to come. We usually get a great turnout for this event and as such everyone who plans to attend is asked to please RSVP to President Eric Roscoe at 518-312-0376 before December 26 to get an accurate head count.  We will be having a buffet style dinner of grilled lemon basil chicken, grilled balsamic veggies, penne with marinara, meatballs &sausage, salad/bread, coffee and dessert with a price tag of just $22 per person. We look forward to seeing everyone there for some fun and frivolity before firing up those race cars for the 2015 A.M.E.C. Ice Racing Championships.

A.M.E.C. holds monthly meetings on the second

 Monday night of each month at;

Russo's Adirondack Grill
3700 Rt. 30
Broadalbin, NY 12025

It is located at the intersection of Rt. 29 and Rt. 30 in Broadalbin, NY.  Follow Route 30 north from the intersection and it's only a few doors up from Dunkin Donuts on the left. The meeting starts at 7:30 but come early to get a bite to eat as the food is very good!


The Adirondack Motor Enthusiast Club (A.M.E.C.) Celebrates its 61st. anniversary this year. We have also completed our 50th year of ice racing. A.M.E.C. Ice Racing is the safest and most inexpensive form of road racing available today. We race 6 classes of cars on approximately .75 to 1.3 mile road courses on frozen lakes in northeastern NY from mid January until early March. All regular classes run on purpose built studded ice racing tires which can be constructed according to our rules or bought from Pryme Tire . We also have the "Street Legal" classes, which use studless  winter tires. The Street Legal Unstudded [SL] class is for 2WD cars and the [SL4] class is for 4WD and AWD cars. We also have a studded tire Street Legal Class for both 2WD and 4WD/AWD using only the Nokian Hakkapeliitta 7 or 8 tires. Normal turnout is 60 to 80 entries. The studded classes run from mild to wild--from under 1500cc box stock cars to custom designed tube frame cars with up to 5.8 liter (358ci.) engines that are capable of running well over 100 mph. There are two stock type classes {Modified Menard and Stock Sportsman}, one for heavily modified stock type cars {Supermodified Closed Wheel}, and one class for exotic tube frame cars {Super Modified Open Wheel}. PLEASE SEE THE FULL COPY OF THE RULES. The race format for the race studded class cars, SMO, SMC, MM, is for two heat races for each class and one finale race. The heat races are about 20 minutes long and the finale from 30 to 40 minutes long. Street Legal classes run three 20 minute heat races. Normally races are held each Sunday during the season (weather and ice conditions permitting) but there may be one or more full weekend events. For more information on the Street Legal Classes click on the "Getting Started" and "Bridgestone Street Legal" links from the menu bar.
