LENTINI AUTO SALVAGE PRESENTS 4TH ANNUAL FLEMINGTON SPEEDWAY HISTORICAL SOCIETY CAR SHOW ON OCT. 18

 

Flemington, NJ -- The Flemington Speedway Historical Society (FSHS) Car Show happens Saturday, October 18, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM. 

The venue is the Hunterdon County Fairgrounds at South County Park, Lambertville, NJ, located on Route 179 near its junction with Route 202. 

Sunday, October 19 is the rain date, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

The FSHS Car Show is the region's largest such event. This fourth annual edition is presented by Lentini Auto Salvage. Through seven decades the Ringoes-based business has been a trusted source for quality used auto parts and has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Flemington Speedway that now benefits FSHS.

More than 700 automobiles were displayed last year. All types of vehicles are being actively sought by the event organizers, whose goal is to have 1,000 in 2014. Antique, custom, hot rod, and new cars, vintage and modern race cars, small and large trucks, motorcycles, emergency response equipment, military vehicles, tractors and farm equipment - all are welcome. Registration is $10 per vehicle.

An accompanying flea market and swap meet has grown in parallel with the car show. Vendor fees are $10 for a 10’ by 10’ pole barn space,  $25 for a 20’ by 10’ outdoor space, $100 for a premium end cap, 20’ x 20.’  For those wishing to sell or swap their rides, the designated Car Corral is $20 per vehicle. Registration forms may be downloaded from the FSHS web site: flemingtonspeedwayhistoricalsociety.com.

Bradshaw Awards of Flemington has produced fifteen People’s Choice and five Lentini Auto Salvage Recognition awards which will be presented in a drive-through awards ceremony at 2:30 PM. 

Following the award presentations, Jersey Jerky (“America’s Best Damn Beef Jerky”) will resurrect an old Flemington Fair Speedway tradition: “Purple Night,” a promotion originally conceived by the recently departed, flamboyant Flemington Fair President, Paul Kuhl. 

“Suckerpunch Suzie,” a popular local party band will perform. Purple Night is highlighted by a Flemington Speedway-themed purple costume contest. Three winners will each receive a trophy and $50, the top fifteen participants will each get a T-shirt and a package of America’s Best Damn Beef Jerky: Jersey Jerky. 

Spectator Admission is $10.00 per carload, with no additional fee for parking. 2014 Car Show apparel and Flemington Speedway souvenirs will be available for purchase at the FSHS display and information center. No alcohol or pets are permitted. 

Event sponsors include Shop Rite of Hunterdon, Everitt Equipment; Hoff's Electrical Service, Allied Septic Service, Arts Radiator & Welding, Champion Tire, Rowe Electric, Hicks Portable Toilets, Hayes Liss Motorsports, Harlan Thompson Racing, and Ditschman/Flemington Ford Lincoln. 

“What an Impression!” is the exclusive event photographer and artist Paul Fenwick has signed to be the exclusive car show pinstriper.
