AJ pugliese:

It is with great sadness that we at the FRCCA announce the passing of our founder AJ Pugliese who died yesterday May 13th,  although not as active with the club in the last few years he would always be there with the answer to any questions you may of had and his knowledge of formula fords will be something that can not be replaced.

He founded the then RCCA ( Race Car Club of America ) after being frustrated with the high costs of running competitively with the SCCA

He wrote new rules and implemented some small modifications to the cars to keep the running costs down and also introduced a hard compound spec tire, all this was to make racing affordable to all that wished to drive a race car.

Those rules and regulations are still in place today and certainly made it possible for this writer to live a dream of racing a Formula car .

He will be greatly missed by all of us here at the FRCCA

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all his family and friends




Next up on the race calender is yet another new venue for this year as we will be heading south to Dominion Raceway in Thornburg Virginia, which is a 2 mile 12 turn roadcourse go to motorsportreg.com and register for the event ( search EMRA events )

All Formula cars welome

The New Jersey Motorsports Park event held on August 3rd & 4th will hold the first annual  AJ ( Buddy ) Pugliese Memorial race Saturday the 3rd on the lighting track in honor of the clubs founder, a man who truely loved the sport of open wheel racing.  

All formula cars are welcome to join us for both days at the track registration is on motorsportreg,com search under EMRA events
