1960 Montgomery SCCA Nationals
The Montgomery SCCA nationals were run on an abandoned SAC base near Newburg, New York.  The course was
simple,  but its location so close to New York City attracted thousands of spectators and press and the best cars from
coast to coast.  It is now a thriving regional airport.
