HAMMOND JOINING LOGANO AND BENSON AT MOTORSPORTS 2009 RACE CAR AND TRADE SHOW
ATLANTIC CITY, NJ November 17, 2008 . . . Popular FOX-TV race analyst Jeff Hammond will be joining NASCAR Sprint Cup star Joey Logano and 2008 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series champion Johnny Benson at the Motorsports 2009 Race Car & Trade Show taking place at the beautiful Atlantic City, NJ Convention Center.
Hammond, a former NASCAR Winston Cup crew chief who worked with Darrell Waltrip when he won two Winston Cup titles and the 1989 Daytona 500, will be visiting with fans and signing autographs during the two day show set to take place January 16-17, 2009. The popular TV personality will also have copies of his book “Real Men Work in the Pits” available.
Also signing autographs during the show will be current NASCAR Sprint Cup sensation Joey Logano who will be taking the place of Tony Stewart in the Joe Gibbs Home Depot Toyota in 2009.
Johnny Benson, who just recently earned his first NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series title, will also be appearing at the show to chat with fans and sign autographs.
Motorsports 2009 is the biggest show of its kind and offers attendees the opportunity to see just about everything imaginable in motorsports spread out over an easy-to-navigate 300,000 square feet of the Atlantic City Convention Center.
More than 250 racecars will be on display while over 400 vendors will be showing what is new for 2009. There will be a large number of race track displays where fans can pick up schedules for the 2009 season and plan for those special events. Industry seminars and the always popular Ms. Motorsports competition along with much more will make up the 24th edition of the Motorsports show.
And right down the street at the famed Boardwalk Hall, the Gambler’s Classic Indoor Midget Auto Races will be presented on Friday, January 16th and Saturday, January 17th. Three quarter midgets and 600cc micro sprints will be the featured attraction along with slingshots and champ karts. Racing each evening starts at 7:30 p.m.
The Saturday night edition of indoor auto racing sold out last year so fans are advised to order their tickets now.
