OAKS, PA October 21, 2016 . . . “The King” is returning to the Motorsports Race Car and Trade Show. After a 30 year absence Richard Petty, the winningest driver in the history of NASCAR Sprint Cup racing, will be appearing at the hugely popular Pioneer Pole Buildings Motorsports 2017 Race Car and Trade Show Fueled by Sunoco Distributed By Insinger Performance which takes place at Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA January 20-22, 2017.

Winner of 200 Cup races, the last one at the 1984 Firecracker 400 at Daytona International Speedway with then President Ronald Reagan in attendance, Petty continues to be one of the most popular figures in motorsports.

Now a NASCAR Sprint Cup car owner, fielding the Smithfield Foods Ford for Aric Almirola and Goody’s Powder Ford for Brian Scott, Petty is presently involved in a yearlong celebration of his 80th birthday which will conclude on his actual birthday, July 2, 2017.

During the peak of his career Petty was able to do something that most likely will never happen again and that was in 1967 when he drove to victory in 27 Cup races, 10 of them in a row. That car will be one of two of Petty’s famous race cars on display all three days of the show.

Petty will be doing an interview in front of the fans talking about his long career in motorsports and will be signing autographs, free of cost to ticketholders. Richard has one of the most artful autographs of any sports figure and it is very much sought after.

The exact time and location of his appearance will be announced shortly.

Many other well-known racers and personalities will be appearing at the show with details to be announced.

The 3-day show will again fill 250,000 square feet of the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center with just about everything imaginable in motorsports available for attendees to see.

Over 250 race cars, representing many different segments of the sport, will be on hand. In addition hardcore vendors will be part of the show along with many racing facilities offering information on their 2017 season.

Again, as in the past, free industry seminars will be offered.

Exhibit space is filling quickly so now is a good time to reserve a display area. Call Danny Sammons at 609.888.3618 or danny@aarn.com.

Best Race Car Display was awarded to Troyer Race Cars. Front and center in the Troyer booth were Jimmy Blewett’s new Asphalt Modified and Mike Mahaney’s new Dirt Modified. Neither car had been unveiled prior to the show opening Friday. Troyer’s Bill Colton drew large crowds of curious, among them many existing customers.

First time exhibitor Jason Leindecker of Leindecker Racing Engines, Center Valley, Pa., spoke for many exhibitors with his comments.
“I came to this show years ago as a kid and dreamed one day I might do something in racing that would be in the show. This year, I have, and it has been a great experience. We sold engines the first night and it’s kept on building,” Leindecker said. “I’m ready to come back next year.”
Haylie Hammond, 11, was named Little Miss Motorsports with Sydney Mancini, 10, first runner-up. Payton Rogers, 5, was named Tiny Miss Motorsports with Jayde Pratt, 4, first runner-up.

TK Gursky won the 5 to 6 year age group feature ahead of Brian James Pickell and Lane Anderson. Kendall Maccarone outran Bowen Pickell and Shane Sammons in the 3 to 4 age group feature.
Event producer Len Sammons was pleased with the Show. “This year’s show had more cars than ever before, and, to me, looked great, even with a couple of late cancellations. I am also very happy with the job the Expo Center did with snow removal Sunday morning,” Sammons said.

12575948_10207498177189362_2104382764_nOAKS, PA January 23, 2016 . . . The absolute best of what drivers, car owners and teams have to offer was on display on Friday, Jan. 22 as the PPB Motorsports Race Car & Trade Show opened at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa. for the first day of its three day run.

Opening Day highlights included a well-attended and received autograph signing session at the unveiling of the ‘Tribute To The Moody Mile’, a featured exhibit honoring the recently closed Syracuse, N.Y, Fairgrounds speedway. Four-time Super DIRT Week winner Gary Balough and Buzzie Reutimann, winner of the first two Super DIRT Week Modified headliners, were joined by Super DIRT Week founder Glenn Donnelly and others, who signed a commemorative poster.

Dr. Greg George presented part one of a two day lecture and slide show covering Syracuse history. The drivers and Dr. George will continue their signings and presentation Saturday at the Show.

Exhibitors did brisk business at the Show opener. Among them was first timer Max Papis, of MPI, a steering wheel manufacturer whose products are widely regarded as the standard in safety and comfort.

“Our products are of high quality and used by almost all of the NASCAR Sprint Cup teams,” said Papis, a former Formula 1, IndyCar and NASCAR driver. “We want to bring our product to the short track asphalt and dirt markets and this is the perfect place to do it.”

Papis, who shared a booth with Randy LaJoie’s The Joie Of Seating, a long time Motorsports Show exhibitor, did brisk business.

LaJoie and Papis were among the most significant ‘Hard Core Parts’ section in many years at Motorsports. Every major dirt track chassis builder, Troyer, Bicknell, Teo and Hig Fab, a first time exhibitor, were on hand with huge displays.

“This is an important show for us,” said Troyer Race Cars’ Billy Colton. “We have the opportunity to meet our dirt and asphalt customers at the same time.”

The Troyer Race Cars display featured two all new race teams, the Buzz Chew Dirt Modified and its driver Mike Mahaney and the Rob Ormsbee Asphalt Modified to be driven by Jimmy Blewett at Wall Stadium in 2016.

The unusually good Friday crowd was due at least in part to the threat of a winter storm Saturday. Although the region is experiencing weather issues prior to the Show’s Saturday 11:00 AM opening, Len Sammons Motorsports Productions’ Len Sammons, event promoter, said Saturday’s event schedule, including the popular Ms. Motorsports Show, will take place as planned.

“The Show will be open all day so we encourage attendees to take their time getting here. The Expo Center crew will be working throughout the day, as needed, keeping the parking lots in good shape,” Sammons said.

Weather elsewhere was the factor that has forced Kyle Larson to cancel his scheduled autograph signing appearance Saturday afternoon. His hero cards arrived earlier in the week, however, and Larson said he will autograph cards for fans who acquire and mail them to Ganassi Racing. Further details will be available at the Show Saturday afternoon.

Over 200 gleaming race cars, displayed among hundreds of booths in the 250,000 square foot Expo Center await attendees Saturday until 9:00 PM and on Sunday, when the Show concludes its run at 4:00 PM.
