IRCO DIRT TRACK HEROES CAR SHOW EYES MARCH 7 OPENING DAY

The 2nd Annual IRCO Dirt Track Heroes Car Show will return to the
Phillipsburg Mall opening on Saturday, March 7 and continuing through
Sunday, March 15. The show is packed full of nightly activities and
filled with many restored race cars that competed on the many local area
race tracks.

The IRCO Community Federal Credit Union is proud to return as the
sponsor of the Dirt Track Heroes Car Show that will run nine days in
2009. The Phillipsburg Mall experienced record attendance during the
first Dirt Track Heroes event and the interest for 2009 is stronger than
ever. Numerous speedways will be present at the IRCO Dirt Track Heroes
Car Show to hand out race schedules and introduce the thousands of Mall
walkers to the area speedway's.

In 2008, the IRCO Dirt Track Heroes Car Show was created to honor the
many great drivers, owners, crew members and race fans who remember and
took part in racing events at the Harmony, Nazareth, Reading and
Flemington Fair Speedways. At last year's show, more than one-hundred
drivers attended the show to be interviewed and to meet and greet the
hundreds of avid racing fans. As this show has a goal to preserve the
history of racing past, it is also a launch pad for the start of the
local short track racing season.

During the show, be sure to visit the America On Wheels display. Folks
from America On Wheels will be on hand to talk about their over the road
transportation museum that is dedicated to presenting and preserving the
history of American transportation, with some special emphasis on the
local area. Currently, there is a changing exhibit gallery which
features "Legends of Speed", and is dedicated to Mario Andretti.
America On Wheels is located in Allentown, PA and for more information,
please visit their website www.americaonwheels.org or plan to meet
Volunteer Coordinator Connie McDowell at the America On Wheels display
during the IRCO Dirt Track Heroes Car Show at the Phillipsburg Mall.

The show will open on Saturday, March 7 and close on Sunday afternoon,
March 15 and Mall hours are Sunday 11 AM to 6 PM and Monday through
Saturday 10 AM to 9 PM.

Race tracks expected to participate include Grandview, New Egypt,
