FORT WASHINGTON, PA OCTOBER 23,2001 . . . Many of the top
names in motorsports have appeared at the Motorsports Auto
Racing Trade Show. And the 17th edition of the mid-winter
motorsports extravaganza, 270,000 square feet of nothing but
auto racing, will again include appearances by a number of
top racers and personalities in the sport. The popular show
takes place at the Fort Washington, PA Expo Center, January
11th thru January 13th.
"A large percentage of our more than 600 exhibit booths
are already spoken for as a result of special offers to
exhibitors in previous shows. Now the exhibit space is
available on a first-come, first-serve basis. And believe me
it is going fast because the 2001 show was such a huge
success for exhibitors." said show organizer Len Sammons.
The 17th annual show will feature stars from NASCAR,
Pennzoil World of Outlaws, NHRA, and so many other major
national and regional racing organizations. And there will be
a large number of well known names in local motorsports
appearing at the three day show.
More than 600 display booths will be filled with
everything related to auto racing. Many speedways and auto
racing organizations will have their new schedules and other
information available for fans and racers. There will be
exhibits that offer the newest race cars, safety equipment,
sportswear, collectables, videos, tires, publications and so
much more.
More than 150 race cars representing just about every
segment of motorsports will be on display throughout the
270,000 square feet of display space.
Seminars on how racers can raise money through
sponsorship or get first hand knowledge on set-ups and more
will take place throughout the weekend. And Motor Max
Motorsports Garage will offer live demonstrations on a
variety of subjects.
Of course the always popular U.S.Tobacco Ms. Motorsports
Pageant will be a highlight of the show as will the Kids Big
Wheel Competition, the Li'l Miss Motorsports competition and
other events.
And making it easier to get to the show is a new exit
and entrance to the PA Turnpike right at the Fort Washington
Expo Center leading to a free parking area.
Motorsports 2002 is expected to attract more than 40,000
people and the very popular show, perhaps the largest of
its kind in the nation, continues to be one of the major
trade shows in the Philadelphia market area.
Show hours will start at 1 p.m. on Friday, January 11
and continuing through until 6 p.m. on Sunday, January 13.
Admission for the show is $10.00 for adults while
youngsters 6-12 pay just $3.00. Under 6 are admitted free.
Tickets are available at the door or advance tickets may be
purchased by telephoning 609.888.3618. Special multi day
admission tickets are also available. Complete information
may be found at Ask to be placed on the show
mailing list to stay informed on the latest information and
appearance schedules.
Companies wishing to make arrangements for special
marketing and entertainment opportunities at the show are
invited to contact Ernie Saxton Communications at
215.752.7797. There are a variety of special programs
available. There are also group ticket plans available along
with event sponsorships.
And again this year discount lodging is available at a
number of local hotels. Reservations must be made through
Marilyn Saxton at 215.752.2392 or telephone Plaza Travel
at 215.322.6888.
Fort Washington Expo Center is located just off Route 26
of the PA Turnpike.
