CAR SHOW RETURNS TO COVENTRY MALL FOR FIRST TIME IN 20 YEARSGrandview PR
POTTSTOWN, PA February 13, 2009 . . . ~ For the first time in 20 years race cars will grace the Coventry Mall in Pottstown, PA as part of the first Paradise Road Slot Car Raceway Car Show. The show, organized by long time local short track auto racing supporter Scott Hoffmaster, will run from Friday, March 6th through Sunday, March 8th.
?The mall management is really excited about this show and if call goes well they hope to make this an annual event as it was some years back,? said Hoffmaster. ?My goals with putting this show together are to promote local dirt track racing and to give drivers another opportunity to promote their sponsors.?
The entry list for the show continues to grow each day with entries ranging from late model stock cars to modifieds, micro sprints, 600 modifieds, midgets and vintage cars.
With NASCAR sanctioned Grandview Speedway just a few miles up the road from the mall there will be a lot of attention given the successful short track that is entering its 47th year of operation. The Grandview Speedway display will be at center court with 2008 late model champion Chuck Schutz and 2008 NASCAR modified champion Jeff Strunk being featured. Fans will be able to pick up the 2009 schedule and racers will be able to get their NASCAR license applications at the show.
Grandview opens their season with a free-to-the-public practice session on Saturday, March 28th at noon.
The Montgomery County Quarter Midget Club, with their track located in nearby Phoenixville, PA, will be a big part of the show.
Paradise Road Slot Car Raceway, located in Bechtelsville, PA, will sponsor the show and have a display featuring their scale slot cars. More information can be had on the raceway at www.paradiseroadslotcar.com. They will also sponsor the best appearing awards for the show.
Hoffmaster continues to seek entries for the show. The show is unique in that there is no entry fee being charged for those racers wanting to display their race cars. Hoffmaster can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Coventry Mall is located on Route 724 in Pottstown, PA just a short distance from Grandview Speedway.
