Tony Adamowicz (May 2, 1941 - October 10, 2016) was a United States racing driver, who competed in one non-championship race, the 1971 Questor Grand Prix, where he finished 17th in a privateer Formula A Lola-Chevrolet. He had a long and successful career in North American CanAm, TransAm, IMSA and endurance racing, and was a class winner once at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

He was notorious as being one of the co-founders of the tongue-in-cheek Polish Racing Drivers of America in the early 1970s. Only people conforming to four criteria were accepted as members: 1. Be a racing driver and be Polish. 2. Be a racing driver and not be Polish. 3. Not be a racing driver and be Polish. 4. Not be a racing driver and not be Polish. These standards are strictly enforced, and no waivers are granted.

Adamowicz retired to southern California in the 1990s, was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2015, and passed away in 2016.
