2009 SpeedwayEXPO Dates Announced,
Popular Racing Show Returns to
West Springfield's Big E February 27-March 1

   SpeedwayEXPO will return to the Big E in Springfield, Massachusetts, February 27-March 1, 2009. Presented by Speedway Illustrated magazine, the three-day show is the largest enthusiast event for Northeastern drivers, teams, tracks, and vendors.
   "The 3rd annual SpeedwayEXPO will kick off the 2009 Northeast racing season with hundreds of exhibits," says Silvio Calabi, the magazine's publisher. "We'll have more than 200 new race cars and old favorites, and bring together drivers, crews, and fans from a dozen states and Canada."
   SpeedwayEXPO has earned a reputation for showcasing the latest race cars, parts, safety gear, and memorabilia. The weekend includes exciting skill competitions and demonstrations as well as informative seminars presented by racing experts. The show's main focus is short track racing. Other forms of motorsports, from motorcycles and snow machines to dragsters, are also represented.
   "We're especially excited about hosting the Riverside Park Speedway Reunion at SpeedwayEXPO," Calabi adds. "We'll be commemorating the 10th anniversary of the closing of the Park with a display of Riverside memorabilia, including some of the legendary cars that raced at Riverside, trophies, programs, drivers' suits, and more. Many Riverside drivers will be on hand too, to sign autographs and talk about their years racing at the track."
   Exhibit space has been selling quickly, with many of the 2008 exhibitors returning. "Exhibit space is being booked on a first-come, first basis," Calabi reports, "so vendors should act quickly to reserve their booths by calling Cal Green at 978-375-2967."
