Opening day of the 23rd Annual NAPA Auto Parts Reading Racing Reunion &
Car Show is fast approaching.  The week long show will open on Sunday,
February 24 and continue through Saturday, March 1st.  Event  Organizers
are in the final planning stages of the show and anyone interested in
displaying their race car, club, organization or speedway, must register
before February 2nd.    Entries are being excepted by calling Donna
Miller at 215-860-5631.  An entry form is also available at
The Fairgrounds Square Mall sits on the very grounds that once was home
to the historic Reading Fairgrounds Speedway. Each year, more then
one-hundred race cars and thousands of visitors fill the Fairgrounds
Square Mall to recall the fond memories of the Reading Fairgrounds and
to launch the coming new short track racing season.
Grandview Speedway always has a strong presence at this event and they
plan to participate once again in 2008. 358 Modifieds, URC Sprint Cars,
Late Models, Midgets, Legends Cars and Micro Sprints are just some of
the types of race cars that will be on display. Always a favorite
viewing during this show is the display of the restored race cars, many
of which competed at one time at the Reading Fairgrounds.   The theme of
this years show will have increased focus on sprint cars, with a special
salute to sprint car greats, Smokey Snellbaker, Van May as well as
recent Hall of Fame inductees Glenn Fitzcharles and Kramer Williamson.
All four drivers were big winners at the Reading Fairgrounds and
delivered much success in the world of sprint car racing.
The BASH Racing Movie Party  will again be part of the week long
Reading Racing Reunion & Car Show.   The BASH Racing Movie Party  is
sponsored by Lee Myles Transmissions of Reading.  The BASH is  set for
Friday night, February 29 at the Temple Fire Company with doors opening
at 8:30 PM with The BASH continuing to at least 1 AM.  Music for
dancing, great racing movies from the past and present and plenty of fun
is planned  for all who attend.  The BASH has quickly become a " don't
miss-fun event" as many local drivers attend, offering fans an
opportunity to meet them away from the race track.

Admission to The BASH Racing Movie Party is just $10.  Tickets may be
purchased during the Reading Racing Reunion & Car Show at the event
shirt stand at center court of  the Mall.  Tickets may also be purchased
in advance by sending a check or money order to Speedway Promotions  129
Mill Pond Place   Langhorne, PA  19047.    Please make your check
payable to Speedway Promotions and enclose a self addressed and stamped
envelop.   Because of limited seating and an always large turnout, it's
a good idea to get your tickets in advance.  A limited number of tickets
will be available at the door, but a sell out is expected.  There will
be a  cash bar available as well.    Also part of The BASH will be the
presentation of the Car Show Special Awards.

Race teams wishing to display their race car in the Reading Racing
Reunion & Car Show should pre-enter by visiting and completing the entry form.  Or,
call Donna Miller at 215-860-5631.
