IRCO DIRT TRACK HEROES CAR SHOW KEEPS ROLLING WITH BIG SALUTE TO NEW EGYPT & EAST WINDSOR WEDNESDAY NIGHT


The 2nd Annual IRCO Dirt Track Heroes Car Show hit mid-stride on
Wednesday night and never skipped a beat as the stars and management of
the New Egypt Speedway and the past heroes from the East Windsor Speedway
paid a visit to this wildly successful Mall show that is free to the public.
Twenty-eight drivers turned out for interviews along with New Egypt
Speedway Promoter Bill Miscoski who informed the large crowd of the
numerous changes and improvements set for the fast approaching 2009
racing season. New Egypt Speedway is now boasting of a 110 feet wide
straight-aways and turns, and drivers are expected to be slicing and
dicing on the new configuration. All of the drivers interviewed were
anxious for the new season to begin. Other big news of the night is
that Gerald Chamberlain and Glenn Fitzcharles will both be attending the
IRCO Dirt Track Heroes event on Saturday. Event organizer Bob Miller
spoke directly with Chamberlain and Fitzcharles to confirm their planned
attendance.

New Egypt drivers interviewed included Syracuse 200 winner Frank Cozze,
his son Frank Cozze Jr who will be a rookie in the Modified ranks this
year, Mike Hendershot, Jon Haegele, Billie Pauch Jr, Sammy Martz, Gary
Butler, Willie Osmun, Mike Krachun, Art Leidl, Rick Laubach, Brian
Roemer, Vern McLaughlin and Doug Ostwald. Drivers from the East Windsor
Speedway ranks included the legendary Ken Brenn Jr, Tommy Vroom, Ray
Liss, Ed O'Neal, and speedway Historian Harold Rulon who told some great
racing stories from the days when East Windsor was racing and
highlighted by the famous story that had Pee Wee Griffin leaving the
raceway for home driving his race car.

David Polenz, the New Jersey State Legends Division Champion from a year
ago, was able to make his first appearance of the week as he was fighting
the flu bug. Polenz, who is the Nephew of the late New Jersey Modified
star Rich Polenz, talked about his jump into the headline Late Model
division this coming season at the Old Dominion Speedway located in Virginia.

New Jersey State Advisory Board members Rick McGaughey and Bob Smith
were on hand and walked the Mall area answering many questions and
providing safety tips to the drivers and owners on hand.

Show organizers Bob and Donna Miller continue to be impressed with the
strong support the racing community has shown this second year show as
has IRCO Community Federal Credit Union Vice President Greg Collins, who
once again welcomed the drivers and fans at the beginning of the show
and thanked them as the show closed for the day.

Thursday evening will feature a night shared with the stars of the
Thunder on the Hill, URC, Grandview Speedway and members from the Area
Auto Racing News staff. With 97 race cars from all divisions lining the Phillipsburg
Mall, the 2nd Annual IRCO Dirt Track Heroes Car Show continues until
Sunday, March 15th, when the show will close with a salute to the Nazareth
Speedway and all of the Dirt Track Heroes who have given everyone an
opportunity to rekindle their love for racing dirt track style.

The Phillipsburg Mall is located on Route 22 East in Phillipsburg, New
Jersey. Mall hours are 10 AM to 9 PM Monday through Saturday and on
Sunday from 11 AM to 6 PM.

An event t-shirt and program book is available for this event and they
are being sold at the center court stage area.
