Pontiac Racing
The history of racing is rich with Pontiac accomplishments!


At PontiacRegistry.com we strive to build the largest source of Pontiac information available anywhere else and that includes Pontiac's rich racing heritage. While there was Pontiac racing involvement in the very early days of production, that was way before auto racing became an organized activity. An activity that was to grow to a huge sport and business.

Everything about Pontiac and racing was about to change when new Pontiac General Manager Semon “Bunky” Knudsen was appointed in July 1956. He was the youngest general manager in Pontiac history, and he soon brought in such soon to become famous Pontiac names as Elliott “Pete” Estes and John Z. DeLorean as Chief Engineer and Director of Advanced Engineering, respectively. With a crew such as that (and more) behind him, the famous “Bunky” Knudsen's words of “Race on Sunday, Sell on Monday!”, became a battle cry of sorts that launched Pontiac into the forefront of nearly every type of racing venue. A position that lasted many years, earning Pontiac a leading position in racing history.

Sadly, Pontiac's racing involvement was to end when it also ended. So it is now our job to make sure all of its exciting history is never lost or forgotten.

Here we bring you a sampling of Pontiac's history and accomplishments in all types of racing. We also feature some of the biggest names in Pontiac racing, and exciting photos here. But, it is just a small sampling of what you will find at PontiacRegistry.com in our On-Line Magazine and Pontiac Pin-Boards.

Read on and enjoy this sampling of Pontiac racing accomplishments.Then try our Free Trial “Test Drive” Membership so you can check out the hundreds- no thousands- of Pontiac articles, photos, and more. Also, if you have information on Pontiac racing history we invite you to share it with us.
