THE EVERETT EXPRESS TO STOP AT THE PHILLIPSBURG MALL SATURDAY
GERALD CHAMBERLAIN & GLENN FITZCHARLES TO SPICE UP THE ACTIVITIES AS THE IRCO DIRT TRACK HEROES CAR SHOW CONTINUES
The 2nd Annual IRCO Dirt Track Heroes Car Show rolled through another
success show on Thursday evening as the AARN, Thunder on the Hill and
the URC were highlighted in the evening program. The latest edition of
the Area Auto Racing News was hot off of the press and was offered free
of charge to the large crowd on hand.
Once again the show opened with IRCO Vice President Greg Collins
welcoming the fans and drivers to the sixth day of the nine day event.
Bill Nixon, the gentlemen and Vietnam Veteran who began the community
pantry for soldiers deployed overseas, was introduced and spoke of how
the concept for the pantry began. Nixon thanked everyone for their help
with the food drive and also talked about his days of traveling the dirt
circuit every weekend with his family by attending Harmony, Flemington
and the Nazareth Speedways.
Twenty-five drivers and journalists were on hand for the interviews and
Thunder on the Hill Announcer Jeff Ahlum and Veteran Announcer and
journalist Earl Krause took turns at the mike in interviewing the
variety of drivers who were present. Popular Ms Motorsports 2009
Alyssa Sharman was on hand to chat with her fans and talk about
the hectic but fun schedule she has enjoyed since claiming the crown
in January in Atlantic City. "The Negotiator" Ricky Yetter, Mark Bitner,
Brett Schoenly, Mark Gilmore, Rod Kistler, Art Leidl, Ray Gara, Barry
Suydam, David Polenz, Kurt Bettler, Lou Horvath Jr, Shelby and Ashley
Harper and Dick Keiper all took part in the interviews.
Keiper, who was a big winner at the Nazareth and Middletown tracks,
talked about his new enterprise being the local distributor for the
XXX Chassis Company. Brett Deyo ended the interviews with a sampling of
all of the many projects he is involved with in motorsports.
Much of the talk with the fans was centered around the big news from
Wednesday night with the confirmation that the "Everett Express" Gerald
Chamberlain and Glenn Fitzcharles will both be attending the IRCO Dirt Track
Heroes event on Saturday for the Flemington Reunion/ARDC salute. Event
organizer Bob Miller spoke directly with Chamberlain and Fitzcharles to
confirm their planned attendance. "Since attending the Reading Show a
few weeks back, Gerald seems even more excited about returning to
meet his many fans and friends from New Jersey, " commented Miller.
The interview portion of the show will begin at 2:30 PM.
Event hosts Ed and Steve Pados announced that due to the successful
airing of their Sunday afternoon taped show that was broadcast last
Monday night, they would again tape the final segment of the IRCO Dirt
Track Heroes Show this coming Sunday, March 15th for a Monday night
broadcast. Pados also announced the June 1st CARQUEST Gasoline Alley
Show will be a direct tie in with the June 2nd Thunder on the Hill visit from
the stars of the USAC Sprint Car Division. Cole Whitt, Dave Darland, Chad
Boat and Chris Windom are expected to take part in the show along with
