    Notable Performances Were Seen At The Track This Year.Wet and Wild Ponti-Action! To say that 2009 has been a rough year for Pontiac lovers is an understatement. GM's April 27 announcement that it was dropping the brand, an institution since 1926, would have seemed like a devastating hit, but it was more of a disappointment than anything and became a call to the Pontiac faithful to band together even tighter than before. Many have stepped up to help promote the hobby in new and innovative ways.

    Fortunately, most Pontiac hobbyists have already made the connection that their love of the brand is not dependent on whether GM is still cranking out G6 rental cars. True, the loss of the G8 GT and GXP, and the Solstice is a blow, but their limited overall production numbers will help ensure future collectibility.

    Even when it rained at the GTOAA/POCI Co-Vention on the Popular Vote show day this past July, it didn't put everybody off. They just went inside and looked at the cars on display in the Nutter Center. They also bought a lot of stuff when they were indoors. No problem. Pontiac fans are tougher than rain.

    inline_mediumwraptextrightThe legendary Arnie "The Farmer" Beswick made one of his signature exhibition passes at Summit Motorsports Park with a smokey burnout, a high-speed backup to the line, and a flawless run down the track. He runs consistent 7-second e.t.'s at over 190 mph. This time out, his pass was a bye run, as the The Bag Boys had mechanical trouble at the line with their '63 "Grocery Getter" Tempest wagon.27369610/events/hppp_1003_2009_pontiac_ames_performance_nationalsh ppp_1003_01_z+2009_pontiac_ames_performance_nation als+motorsports_park.jpgTrue
