RAM Clutches will return for a second season as title sponsor of the RAM Clutches Palmetto Shootout,' on June 24th at the South Carolina Motorplex [formerly Orangeburg Drag Strip] in Neeses/Orangeburg. This event marks the second consecutive year that the South East Gassers Association [SEGA] has brought its traveling time machine into Orangeburg, SC, where a record number of competitors plan to compete in the A/Gas, B/Gas, C/Gas, H/Gas, A/FX, and Super Stock categories.

RAM will have their tech support team on hand, and attendees are encouraged to come out and meet their staff and employees. The relationship between SEGA is one that dates back to founder Quain Stott's days as a Pro Modified champion. The majority of SEGA racers are using RAM single-disc sintered iron race clutches.

RAM was founded in 1973 by John Norcia in Canton, Ohio, and moved to Columbia, SC, in 1983. It is now run by sons Mike and Pat Norcia, who share a passion for all manually shifted performance and racing vehicles.

"The Southeast Gassers have been a big shot in the arm to keep stick-shift drag racing alive and well, along with the many other stick shift only groups around the country," said Mike Norcia. "We have been incredibly busy trying to keep up with the multitude of new cars being assembled for the SEGA, as well as keeping all the current customer units serviced."
