Racing Trade Show Largest Ever

 

Raleigh, NC--  The 22nd Annual Piedmont Racing Expo will feature the largest ever participation in the show’s history.  At present, forty two vendors will occupy over ninety 10’x10’ spaces in the Expo Center at the State Fairgrounds during the two-day event on Friday and Saturday, January 18-19.  The show’s promoter Phillip Walker, a veteran short track racer and an motorsports auctioneer reports that this will be the best trade show ever for racers who come from all over NC and neighboring states. 

 

“In addition to seeing all the new racing technology and parts for 2008 from the racing parts distributors, paying attendees will have an opportunity to register for a free 10 lap driving experience called “Rockingham Thunder” from Andy Hillenburg’s Fast Track High Performance Driving School (www.fasttrackracing.com), said Walker. One of the schools “CUP” racecars will be on display at the Expo.  Hillenburg recently purchased the North Carolina Speedway in Rockingham for just over $4 Million and in addition to conducting driving schools, plans to have several major races their this year, including the ARCA "Carolina 500" and the Hooter's Pro Cup "American 200".  

 

Another treat for everyone is that this year, all ladies and children under 14 will be admitted free.  “There will be something for everyone, so bring the family and the whole crew to the Expo”, advised Walker.  “We have everything from youngster Stephen Ford with his championship go-kart, Wake County Speedway’s Lizzy Smith (www.lizzysmithmotorsports.net), the teenage girl racer who was featured on ABC News 20/20, to racecars from over eight speedways and racing series on display”, said Walker.

 

In addition to the trade show, the Piedmont Racing Auction will be held in conjunction with the event, which features over 1000 lots of racing parts, cars, tow vehicles, trailers, and engines. 

 

Doors open Friday at 1pm with the auction getting underway at 5pm.  The show closes at 10 pm on Friday.  Saturday the doors open at 8am, the auction starts at 9am, with rolling stock being auctioned at 2pm.  The trade show closes at 5pm and the auction will continue until all parts are sold.  Additional information can be found at www.piedmontracingexpo.com, or by contacting Walker at pwalker@phillipwalkerauctions.com
