EASTERN MOTORSPORT PRESS ASSOCIATION
SETS DATES FOR ANNUAL CONVENTION

    The Eastern Motorsport Press Association, made up of professional media that cover all forms of motorsports on a national, regional and local level, will present their annual convention at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center in Trevose, PA from Friday, January 15th through Sunday, January 17th, 2010.
   The convention consists of a variety of press conferences featuring speedways, sanctioning organizations and race teams sharing their plans for the future with the more than 100 more that are on hand. In addition there are a variety of social and networking opportunities along with the annual NASCAR/EMPA Hall of Fame Awards Dinner. The prestigious Al Holbert Memorial/EMPA Driver of the Year Award is announced along with several other special awards.
Since the first convention many of the top competitors and personalities in motorsports have been part of the annual convention that goes back to 1969 when the organization was founded.
   "Being a part of the EMPA convention is a wonderful way for speedways, organizations and race teams to reach the professional media that cover the sport," said EMPA president Ernie Saxton. "We would love to see more involvement from the short track racing industry that can certainly use the increased media exposure. It is an opportunity to create a relationship with members of the organization."
   Saxton is one of the founders of the EMPA and has been the president for more than 40 years. However the 2010 convention will be his last as president as he has advised the membership that he will not be seeking re-election. He does not plan to run for any office.
   NASCAR will again be a major part of the convention as will Pocono Raceway, SPEED Channel and a number of organizations, speedways and corporations.
   As in the past members who have their work appear on the Internet, radio and TV, and in print publications will be participating in contests to see who earns the top awards.
   Information on the Eastern Motorsport Press Association membership and their annual convention can be had by telephoning Ernie Saxton at 215.752.7797 or via e-mail at Esaxton144@aol.com.
