READING RACING REUNION AND DIRT TRACK HEROES CAR SHOW DATES CONFIRMED
FOR 2009

Two of the biggest off season racing attractions now have their dates
confirmed for 2009.  Look for the 24th Annual NAPA Auto Parts Reading
Racing Reunion & Car Show to return to the Fairgrounds Square Mall  in
Reading, PA, opening Sunday, February 22 and continuing through
Saturday, February 28.   At the Phillipsburg Mall in Phillipsburg, NJ,
the 2nd Annual IRCO Community Federal Credit Union sponsored Dirt Track
Heroes & Car Show will open on Sunday,  March 8 and run through
Saturday, March 14th.  There will certainly be a few new twists for both
shows so sit tight, enjoy the 2008 racing season and we'll see you on
the 2009 Mall Tour.  Look for the possibility of two other area Malls
joining in on this great promotional opportunity for local motorsports.

For the NAPA Auto Parts Reading Racing Reunion & Car Show, the event
will mark the thirtieth year since the final checker flag fell at the
Reading Fairgrounds Speedway, the property now occupied by the
Fairgrounds Square Mall.  Event Organizer Bob Miller  is actively
working to bring Dave Kelly to the 2009 show.  Kelly won the final event
presented at Reading then went on to win numerous modified features
before turning to the sprint cars where he again enjoyed great success.
Dave Kelly is four time URC Champion and is ranked second on the all
time URC career win list with seventy-six victories.

Interest is already plentiful for the coming 2009 Dirt Track Heroes &
Car Show.   IRCO Community Federal Credit Union will return once again
as sponsor of the show.  The crowds for this show were unbelievable with
just shy of 13,000 visitors attending opening day of the show.  Day
seven topped that number with 15,000 mall walkers taking a look at
seventy race cars and meeting some of the all time favorite drivers of
the past and present.  During the week long show, approximately
two-hundred interviews took place.  Grandview Speedway saw a big benefit
in the show, distributing more then 10,000 flyers and  announcing their
coming season.  As for 2009, we look to include East Windsor and the
Hatfield Speedways to the list of tracks to honor.

For now, the racing season is fast approaching, so take in a show at a
track near you!  

The Reading Racing Reunion & Car Show as well as the Dirt Track Heroes
event is sponsored and supported by the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the
Hill Racing Series,  a wildly successful novelty promotion of mid-week
racing at the popular Grandview Speedway.  Thunder on the Hill will
present its nineteenth season at the Grandview Speedway,  located on
Passmore Road, just ten mile north of Pottstown on Route 100 in
Bechtelsville, PA (19505).  For more information, please visit
www.thunderonthehillracingseries.com  or www.grandviewspeedway.com.  

Grandview Speedway will open their season on Saturday night, April 5
with NASCAR Modifieds & Late Models racing in a full program of
qualifying events leading up to the 40 lap Modified feature and the 20
lap Late Model feature.  Action will get underway at 7 PM.  For more
information, please call 610-754-7688.
