LONGACRE SIGNS ON AS RACING'S SPEEDY AWARDS SPONSOR

   Longacre Racing Products, of Monroe, Washington, has been named the official sponsor of the SPEEDY Awards presented each year at SpeedwayEXPO. Each Award winner receives a special race-car steering wheel from Longacre as a trophy.
   "With the winner's name and details inscribed on a brass plate set into the hub, these racing wheels look great and are really appropriate," said Karl Fredrickson, Editor of Speedway Illustrated Magazine, which produces EXPO and the SPEEDY Awards.
   Tom Glithero, Longacre Racing Products Vice-President, said, "We are proud to sponsor the SPEEDY Awards. To recognize some of the excellent people in our sport, from Breakout Racer of the year to Best Individual Promotion, is outstanding!"
   Longacre has been a prime supplier to the motorsports community for more than 40 years. The company has an enviable reputation for customer service and for supplying durable, high-quality racing equipment and tools at reasonable prices. "Our goal is to use our experience to produce better, more reliable parts and pieces for teams who take their racing as seriously as we do," Glithero said.
   SpeedwayEXPO annually honors 11 deserving members of the racing community with SPEEDY Awards. The winners are nominated by fellow racers and fans and the winners are then selected by the editors of Speedway Illustrated Magazine. To see the SPEEDY categories and nominate deserving entrants, go to www.speedwayexpo.com/speedy_awards.php.
   SpeedwayEXPO tickets purchased in advance offer a $5 discount off the price at the gate. These money-saving tickets are available at 978-465-9099 x 103 (ask for Barbara) or online at SpeedwayEXPO.com.
   Produced by Speedway Illustrated Magazine and sponsored by Sunoco, SpeedwayEXPO will be at the Big E, in West Springfield, MA, Feb. 27 - March 1, 2009. It is the largest event for drivers, teams, tracks, and racing vendors in the Northeast.
