Lentini Auto Salvage Presents Flemington Speedway Historical Society Car Show October 17

FLEMINGTON, NJ - Flemington Speedway Historical Society’s fifth annual Car Show opens to spectators at 9:00 AM on Saturday, October 17. A highlight of the event is the awards parade and presentation, which is scheduled to start at 1:40 PM. The show ends organically after this award ceremony. 

The Hunterdon County Fairgrounds (South County Park), Route 179, Lambertville, New Jersey, is the venue. It’s near the intersection of Routes 202 and 179 in Ringoes, NJ. The rain date is the next day, Sunday, October 19, same time.

The event's patron, Lentini Auto Salvage, developed a long-standing relationship with Flemington Speedway that now benefits FSHS. Through seven decades the Ringoes business has been a trusted source for quality used auto parts.

Musician J.T. Rooney will perform live with friends inside the main building, which is the site of the FSHS display and information center. 2015 Car Show apparel and Flemington Speedway souvenirs will be for sale, and at 1:40 PM, the awards parade and presentations happens right here. 

More than 830 vehicles were displayed last year. Pre-registration has already reached a new high. It seems very likely that the organizing team’s goal of more than 1,000 cars will at last be met. 

Spectator Admission is $5.00 per adult, parking is free.

Race cars are featured and ALL types of vehicles are welcome. Boats, motorcycles, tractors, and buses have been popular guest stars. Registration is $10 per show vehicle. Registration is free for entries by Police Departments, Fire Departments, and Rescue Squads. Any first responders wishing to display antique or active duty apparatus should contact event volunteers at 908-246-8820.

The accompanying flea market and swap meet is also registering vendors at record pace. Vendor fees are $10 for a 20’ by 12’ indoor space and $100 for a 20’ by 20’ premium outdoor space.

The event benefits Flemington Speedway Historical Society Inc., which is a public charity 501(c)(3) non profit organization, as well as the Hunterdon County 4-H and Agricultural Fair. The Fair is in charge of lining up a diverse and delicious variety of food vendors.
