Oaks, PA — Tony Stewart, one of the most popular names in auto racing, is set to be part of the Pioneer Pole Buildings Motorsports 2018 Race Car and Trade Show presented by Sunoco and fueled by Insinger Performance come January 2018.
A winner in just about every form of auto racing that he took part in, including NASCAR Cup and IndyCar, during his career Stewart will appear at the popular show on Saturday, January 20, from 12 noon to 2 p.m. The 33rd edition of the show, featuring just about everything imaginable in motorsports, takes place at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa. on Friday through Sunday, January 19-21, 2018.
Stewart, a three-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, retired from NASCAR race driving at the end of the 2016 season. He remains a major part of NASCAR as he and Gene Haas own the four car Stewart-Haas Cup Series team. The Ford entries are currently driven by Kevin Harvick, Kurt Busch, Clint Bowyer and Danica Patrick.
Considered one of the busiest people in the motorsports business Tony now races in Sprint Car events across the nation, operates the hugely popular Eldora, Ohio Speedway and is the owner of the All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car organization not to mention a number of other business ventures.
The former NASCAR, Indy Racing League, USAC Triple Crown and IROC champion is always a great interview. He will first speak to show attendees before signing autographs.
Many other well-known local, regional and national motorsports personalities are also expected to appear.
Filling 250,000 square feet of space, the show features hundreds of race cars, speedway exhibits, parts and product displays and more. Many speedways use the three day show to announce their plans for the new season. In addition, there are a number of free seminars offered that cover a variety of subjects relating to the business of motorsports.
The show has also become known for its outstanding show special cash and carry prices on many items especially a long range of safety equipment from seats, to helmets and uniforms.
“The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks is a great location in the center of the northeast racing world,” said Sammons. “It’s easy in and easy out with plenty of free parking surrounding the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center. It has become a very popular location with show attendees and exhibitors. We welcome the opportunity to return the show to the Expo Center which continues to improve annually. The new HD Lights were a great addition last year.”
Exhibit space continues to fill quickly indicating the show will be a huge success.
A newly designed website with up to date information on the show was recently launched, motorsportstradeshow.com. The site is dedicated solely to the event and will be a must visit for potential exhibitors and attendees.

Richard Petty, considered the King when it comes to NASCAR, attracted long lines of fans to hear his interview and collect his artistic autograph in January. Another huge attraction was the only American owned Formula One entry owned by Haas Automation.
“With all the attractions we offered, the free autograph opportunities, the appearance of Richard Petty and so much the 2017 show was a big success,” said show promoter Len Sammons. “We are expecting this edition to be even a bigger success. You can bet our staff will be working hard to make it happen. The three day show will again fill all space available in the hall. We are suggesting that those planning to exhibit reserve their space as soon as possible.”
Racers from all over the Northeast pencil in the Motorsports show date so they can talk first hand with manufactures and distributors of products they use.

“Our Short Track Super Series and Georgetown Speedway booths were very busy all day,” said Heather Deyo, wife of STSS and Georgetown promoter Brett Deyo. “They were still three deep at our booths when the announcement was made that the show was closing for the day.”
Elsewhere, Hoffman Speed & Performance owner Keith Hoffman, who also is involved in the operation of Bridgeport Speedway, was extremely pleased with the turnout at the show and the business Hoffman Speed did.
“This was one of the best Fridays we have had since we started coming to show many years ago,” Hoffman said. Hoffman further noted that Bridgeport Speedway’s staff was doing a brisk trade in pit licenses, pit parking space sales and even 2016 souvenir merchandise liquidation.
Kevin Olson’s two hour autograph signing of his new book, ‘Cages Are For Monkeys’ kept the USAC star busy signing copies of books being purchased.
“The book is doing well, in its second printing, and I’m happy with the sales at the show so far,” Olson said.
Max McLaughlin was the winner of the Celebrity Go Kart Challenge, conducted at the Motorsports Show Indoor Electric Kart Oval Track. McLaughlin outran Anthony Perrego, Eric Kormann, Ryan Grim, Ryan Godown and DJ Hunt. The six were the qualifiers from a twelve driver celebrity field that ran two heat races.
A rear engine Midget that was designed, built and driven by Jerry Wall, now 82 years of age, was unveiled by Gary Mondschein, the architect of the restoration project while George VanVarick, owner of the car, looked on with pride. The car was campaigned by Wall in the early seventies, won eight times, then was effectively banned by rule changes that specified the route through the chassis the driveshaft was required to take.
“I thought about building the car after driving several Midgets including a mid-engine one,” Wall said. “I spent a year building it and wasn’t sure it would work. But did, too well,” Wall laughed.
The festivities of Day One served as a prelude to Day Two which will feature guest appearances by NASCAR Superstar Richard Petty and second generation NASCAR racer Jeffrey Earnhardt and the day will conclude Saturday night with the annual Ms. Motorsports Pageant.

Second year exhibitor Jerry Higbie, Jr., owner of Hig Fab Chassis in Goshen, N.Y., shared the enthusiasm of most every exhibitor on Thursday set-up day, commenting, “No show in the forecast, you gotta love that.”

Matt Sheppard, who turned the most potentially adverse moment of his driving career into the most productive season of his life, will be among the honorees on Saturday.
Sheppard will be recognized at Motorsports for winning 29 feature races in 2016, five more than any other driver in the Area Auto Racing News readership area. Each of the wins were in the Dirt Modified category.
“I didn’t have a lot of time to put a team together,” Sheppard remarked of the organization he nad his supporters formed after his release from HBR Racing in early December. “I hadn’t planned on being a driver-owner but it has worked out pretty well I’d say.”
Sheppard, of Waterloo, N.Y. ,will receive a check at the Motorpsorts Show for $200 as a divisional winner and $500 for the overall Northeast winners. Sheppard earned his fifth Super DIRT Car Series title with a record twelve wins and claimed track titles at Canandaigua and Utica-Rome Speedways in 2017.
Asphalt Modified driver Keith Rocco, on the strength of fifteen 2016 wins, is the Northeast winner in that category, Rocco, of Wallingford, Ct., earned a total of 23 features in 2016, with his 15 asphalt Modified wins the standard in that bracket. He also won seven asphalt Late Model races Rocco will receive $200 from Area Auto Racing News.
Mike Sweeney, asphalt Late Model specialist of Nesquehoning, Pa. topped all others in the AARN readership with nine features and will receive $200 from Area Auto Racing News for that achievement.
Tyler Walton of Mifflintown, Pa.. topped the 600cc Micro Sprint division with twelve wins to earn the Area Auto Racing News Top Northeast Winner title for the second straight year. Like Sheppard, Rocco and Sweeney, Walton will be honored at Motorsports.
Two other Top Northeast winners will be unable to attend the Motorsports Show for the best possible reason: they will be racing.
Dirt Late Model standout Max Blair, Titusville. Pa., won twenty Dirt Late Model features in 2016, fifth overall over the AARN readership. Blair will be ‘on the road’ during the Motorsports Show, en route to Dirt Late Model races beginning the next week in Georgia and Florida.
And Central Pennsylvania 410 Sprint star Greg Hodnett of Thomasville. Pa., is already racing Sprint cars, in Australia where he will remain until early February.
Sheppard, Rocco, Sweeney and Walton will meet and greet race fans at the Area Auto Racing News Booth No. 224 beginning at 5:00 p.m. and running through 6:00 p.m. Each will sign the annual Motorsports Show commemorative Top Northeast Winner color poster and pose for pictures with admiring fans.
