NAPA AUTO PARTS 23RD ANNAUL READING RACING REUNION RETURNS TO FAIRGOUNDS SQUARE FEBRUARY 24

Opening day of the 23rd Annual Reading Racing Reunion & Car Show
is fast approaching and the Fairgrounds Square Mall  in Reading, PA is
just days away from transforming into the week long home of nearly
one-hundred race cars of various divisions.  The show will open on
Sunday, February 24th and continue through Saturday, March 1st.

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 sponsored by Lee Myles will again be
part of the week long Reading      Racing   Reunion & Car Show.   The
Lee Myles BASH  Racing Movie Party 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.
