"Hell On Wheels" stunt shows highlight expanded off-track entertainment for race fans during GRAND-AM Road Racing weekend on July 22-24, 2011 at New Jersey Motorsports Park

MILLVILLE, N.J. - High-flying BMX stunt shows, girls pushing and shoving on roller skates and fans stuffing their mouths with hot dogs in pursuit of a unique wiener-inspired trophy are just some of the newly added fan attractions coming to New Jersey Motorsports Park during the GRAND-AM Road Racing weekend on July 22-24, 2011.

"Hell On Wheels" consists of riders on BMX bikes, Freestyle Motocross, skateboards, inline skates and street bikes performing acrobatic stunts using ramps. The New Jersey-based group has wowed fans at numerous motorsports events around the country and will be coming to NJMP for the first time on July 23-24. Four shows are scheduled for both Saturday and Sunday of race weekend. Learn more about Hell On Wheels at www.HellOnWheels.com. 
 
Tony Carbajal from "Tony's Stunts" is also scheduled for two days of stunt shows on his high powered motorcycle. Carbajal will perform a number of ground tricks on his Kawasaki ZX-6R. Visit  www.TonyStunts.com for more information. The South Jersey Roller Girls are scheduled for an exhibition match on Sunday at 11 a.m., as they'll demonstrate the fierce action of roller derby. All stunt shows and exhibits will be held in the Paddock Fan Zone located between the Officers Club and the garage area at NJMP.
 
"We've put a greater emphasis on fan attractions and exhibits as an added value for our ticket holders this season," said Brad Scott, general manager of New Jersey Motorsports Park. "The on-track action speaks for itself, and by adding in stunt shows, increasing the number of exhibitors and creating an entertaining pre-race show, we're appealing to more than just race fans. We want NJMP to be a destination for families, casual sports fans, and anyone looking to get out and have some fun."
