Uncle Sam was ordered by Mack Massey Jr and is 1 of only 52 Super Stock

AMXs produced. Because of production rules of the NHRA at the time

manufactures had to produce at least 50 units to be legal for competition.

Mack Massey is in the classic car salesman jacket standing next to Joe Ortega.

Joe was a mechanic at Mack’s dealership & chief wrench on Uncle Sam along

with Shelton. The car is in 1970 trim in this picture above.


The car's original driver was Tom Shelton. The above pic is Dennis Kincaid

second driver of the car (still with Joe Ortega tuning) who ran the car from

1969 thru 1971.

Bonnie Shelton (Tom’s wife) also drag raced AMC factory sponsored racers.

First, an orange and black AMC Rebel and later a red, white, and blue Rebel

(both cars bought by them from Mack Massey)














At the old AHRA National in Tucson in 1969 they were the speed

record holder

Tom Shelton left in 70 to race a gas dragster with a big injected cubic

inch AMC motor. (That motor went on to be owned by Rick Bennet

now Ray Griffin has it.)

Uncle Sam received a 1970 make over to run in Super Stock as a

1970. They changed the hood, grill, dash, emblems, and taillights.

But that year there were so few of them, they had to run A/Gas for

a while.
