MOTORSPORTS 2007 IN ATLANTIC CITY A SUCCESS,
CHELSEA MILLER IS NEW MS MOTORSPORTS

Atlantic City, New Jersey, January 15, 2007 . . . The Motorsports 2007 presented by VP Racing Fuels Race Car show held this past weekend at the plush Atlantic City Convention Center for the first time was a huge success.
With more than 250 race cars on display, more than 600 exhibitor areas offering just about anything imaginable in motorsports, free autographs from national, regional and local racing personalities and so much more, thousands of people jammed the 300,000 square foot show area.
There were appearances by national racing stars such as NASCAR Nextel Cup Rookie of the Year Denny Hamlin, 2003 Cup champion Matt Kenseth, NHRA drag racing star Ron Capps, NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series champion Todd Bodine, Nextel Cup star Dave Blaney, Craftsman Truck Series standout Erin Crocker and past Daytona 500 champion Derrike Cope.
One of the highlights of the three day show was the U.S.Tobacco Ms. Motorsports Pageant with lovely Chelsea Lynn Miller of Langhorne, PA judged the winner and picking up $1,500 for her winning efforts. The 5’7” blonde beauty who works as a cosmetologist was making her first start in the competition. She has represented DIRT Motorsports, the United Racing Company and Dream Makers MP3. Ms. Miller will represent the show with personal appearances at a variety of events in 2007.
Dana Hastings, a real estate agent from Georgetown, Delaware, was the first runner-up. JoMarie Rankin of Butler, PA, a dental hygienist who has been part of Ms. Motorsports for a number of years, was second runner-up.
Other awards during the Saturday afternoon contest included Clara Henson (Photogenic), Erica Aleno-Maloney (Swimwear), Dana Hastings (Sportswear) and Laura Linder (Congeniality).
For the second year in a row the FantaSea Resorts Swimwear Competition allowed fans to have a voice in the selection of a winner. $500 went to fan favorite Dana Hastings in a close voice vote of the hundreds of fans in attendance. Hastings also picked up $500 for finishing second in the Ms. Motorsports pageant and will step in should Ms. Miller not be able to fulfill all obligations.
Big Wheel racing featuring youngsters racing vehicles provided by show management saw Garrett Nordberg win the Age 3-4 Class followed by Robbie Page and Carmen Griggs. In the 5-6 age class Jacob Mueller was the winner with Tyler Massie finishing second and Matt Toby grabbing third. Pete Dee won in the 7-9 age category followed by Blake Barney and Marissa Giberson.

“Many exhibitors participating in Motorsports 2007 are already asking for information on Motorsports 2008 with several reserving the same space or asking for more show space, “ commented show organizer Len Sammons. “We are very happy with the way the show turned out, especially when you consider that it is our first year in Atlantic City after so many years at the Fort Washington, PA Expo Center.”
Boardwalk Hall officials, where the “Gambler’s Classic” indoor auto racing events were presented during the same weekend, estimated attendance for the two days of racing at more than 10,000. The final night of racing saw veteran racers Joey Payne and Lou Cicconi battling for the win and Payne taking the victory by a matter of a couple of feet.
Many fans used the convenience of the NJ Transit System to travel to the events. The train dropped fans off right in the Convention Center. Also proving popular were a number of organized bus trips that allowed fans to attend the show, the races and even sneak in some “other attractions” before heading home.
Motorsports 2008, the 23rd edition of the three day midwinter motorsports extravaganza, will take place at the same location January 11-13, 2008. It is not too early to make plans to attend.
Suggestions and comments are invited regarding the show and can be sent to motorsports@aarn.com. That same address can be used to be added to the show and indoor racing email mailing list. Information may be found at www.aarn.com

Genesis Shocks To Appear At Motorsports ’07; Conduct Free Seminar

Atlanta, GA --- The success story of the year in dirt track racing manufacturing, Genesis Racing Shocks, will be on hand in force with a huge display at the upcoming Motorsports 2007 presented by VP Racing Fuels show in Atlantic City, NJ where co-founder of Genesis Racing Shocks Mike Farr will conduct a special seminar.

Genesis Racing Shocks was founded on March 1, 2006 by Mike Farr and Mike Lutz, two long-time industry mainstays with decades of combined experience in shock absorber design, engineering and manufacturing and since then have made a big impact on the short track racing industry.

The 22nd edition of the Motorsports Expo is set for January 12-14 at the plush Atlantic City Convention Center. Motorsports 2007 moves to the Atlantic City Convention Center after a successful 12-year run at the Fort Washington (Pa.) Expo Center. Motorsports 2007 will occupy nearly 300,000 sq. ft. of the A.C. Convention Center.

“The Motorsports show has always been a good show for meeting new customers and dealers,” stated Farr. “Although you have to work at it differently than other trade shows the true diehard racers do attend it in droves. There are a lot of race fans there but there's one hell of a lot of racers there as well, you just have to work harder at this show to get the results but if worked right the results will show up.”

Farr will also conduct a special seminar at the Motorsports 2007 presented by VP Racing Fuels, ‘Shock Absorber Choices’, on Friday January 12 from 4:15 – 5:15 PM in Room Two. The seminar is free to the racing community.

“Well, I'm not quite sure how this will end up, the seminars will start out in one direction and usually end up completely in another some how (laughs)!” offered Farr. “But we’re looking forward to it and we hope the racers are, too.”

At the Genesis racing Shocks display you will be able to speak with company representatives as well as check out dirt Late Model star Chub Frank’s new Rocket Chassis #1* along with it’s new color scheme in addition to others. “We would like to thank Robbie Blair, Ritchie Pratt, Doug Drown, Jeff Heotzler and the entire staff and crew from The Motorsports 2007 show for their help,” commented Farr. “We also have to extend a big thanks to John Farr Lighting and all the effort an work they are putting into our display.”

As the 2007 season approaches Farr and Lutz can look back on their inaugural season with some sense of pride. “We ended up with 10 championships and almost 100 win's in our first nine months of serving the best racers out there,” said Farr. “And there's some BIG NAMES coming out with Genesis in 2007 so the future looks pretty bright.”

The new manufacturing facility and corporate office for Genesis Shocks and their new Genesis Racing Shocks line of upscale, high tech shock absorbers is located at: Genesis Shocks, 5020 Old Ellis Point Suite 200, Roswell, GA. 30076. Telephone: 678-659-9454. Fax: 678-659-9457.

The Genesis Racing Shocks website is located at: www.Genesisshocks.com.

Checkered Dreams Charity Prepared for Consecutive Motorsports Appearance
Written by: Gene Ostrowski

Atlantic City, NJ (December 27, 2006) – For the second consecutive year, Checkered Dreams, a non-profit racing charity for seriously ill and disabled children, will be one of the charities of choice at Motorsports ‘07 in January. Presented by VP Racing Fuels, the show, which runs from the 12th of January through the 14th, should be gigantic, as it will be held at a new location- Atlantic City, NJ.

During the three-day event, a slew of racing memorabilia will be up for auction at the Checkered Dreams booth. Items such as sheet metal, autograph cards, shirts, racing suits, shirts, banners, etc. from a wide variety of NASCAR and local race teams will be on tap for the auction. Just as they were last year, many local and national drivers will be at the booth through out the show, signing autographs for their loyal fans.

Probably the most popular item on hand for the auction will be a leather fireman's helmet, which was signed by NASCAR star and comedian, Kenny Wallace. Only two of the classic pieces were produced. The winner of the auction will receive one and Wallace has the other, which also makes it a rare collectable for any Wallace fan.

Originally from Pennsylvania, Ziegler and her family moved to North Carolina during the summer, which expanded the charity from the tri-state area to basically the entire North East. “Now that the office has relocated, the NASCAR community is proving even more supportive”, Ziegler noted. “With any luck we're hoping to hold events along the entire East Coast over the next couple of years. “We’re already planning many Checkered Dreams events for ’07, many of which are back near our old hometown in the tri-state area”.

At least fourteen drivers, track and series representatives are slated for autograph signings through out the entire weekend. More may be added as the show date approaches.

The drivers and representatives on hand for autograph sessions are:

Eddie Brunnhoelzl III- ’06 Mountain Speedway modified champion will be on hand for autographs on Saturday, long with Don Wagner (’06 Mahoning modified champion), Kory Rabenold (RoC asphalt series R.O.Y.) and Eric Beers, the popular NASCAR Whelen modified tour driver. Rabenold will be on hand Friday as well.

Saturday will also showcase the all ladies “Full Throttle” autograph session from 12-2 PM. Ford focus midget driver, Stephanie Stevens will be on hand, along with Jill Canuso (NHRA and monster truck driver), Ms. NEETS- Cindy Bott, Ms. Mountain ‘06- April Makarewicz, Jackie Ziegler (Late model and IMCA modified driver) Melanie Thomas (Rear tire changer for the #72 Nextel Cup team) and Marissa Nelmes (Thriller driver). Nelmes will also be signing on Sunday with Ms. NEETS (Cindy Bott) and Ms. Mountain ’06 (April Makarewicz) and Ziegler will be signing Friday along with Saturday.

ACTOR/COMEDIAN LOUIS “TWITCHELS” CENTANNI TO APPEAR AT MOTORSPORTS 2007

Deptford, NJ – Actor and comedian Louis “Twitchels” Centanni, best known from radio’s “Opie and Anthony” and most recently MTV’s “True Life: I have Tourettes”, will be appearing at Motorsports 2007 Presented by VP Racing Fuels January 12th through the 14th at the Atlantic City Convention Center.

Centanni will be at Big Jim’s Racing Videos booth #2447 greeting fans and signing copies of his children’s book Little Twitching Timmy – The Turtle With Tourettes throughout the entire weekend.

Nicknamed “Twitchels” by Nicole Ritchie on an episode of The Simple Life, Centanni has learned to cope with his disorder – Tourette’s Syndrome – through the art of comedy and never taking himself too seriously. In addition to his outrageous appearances on the popular Opie and Anthony show, he has also been a guest regular on the Atlantic City – based radio program “Scotty and Alex”, as well as the “Cousin Ed Show” on Philadelphia’s WYSP.

“I’m really excited to be a part of this year’s Motorsports 2007 and am looking forward to a fantastic weekend,” said Centanni, a native of Ocean City, NJ and graduate of Ocean City High School class of 2003. “Being from South Jersey, my family used to attend the races at Pitman’s Alcyon Speedway. I am thrilled to be a part of the next generation of a racing tradition.”

Motorsports 2007 Presented by VP Racing Fuels will be taking place at Atlantic City’s Convention Center January 12th-14th, 2007. For more information on tickets and schedules, visit the Area Auto Racing News webpage at http://www.aarn.com.


MEMORIES OF PLEASANTVILLE, NJ SPEEDWAY TO BE FEATURED AT MOTORSPORTS 2007

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ December 9, 2006 . . . Memories of a famous racetrack in
South Jersey will be featured as part of a special exhibit and presentation during
the Motorsports 2007 Presented by VP Racing Fuels race car show the weekend
of January 12-14 at the Atlantic City Expo Center.

As part of Motorsports 2007, a huge auto racing show with hundreds of race cars
on display representing just about all forms of motorsports including NASCAR filling
270,000 square feet of the mammoth facility, the history and competitors at the
long-shuttered Pleasantville, NJ Speedway, only a short distance from the Expo
Center and Casinos, will be recognized. Show attendees will also have the opportunity
to meet several famous racers including Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth, Ron Capps,
Dave Blaney and a host of others.

Pleasantville, also for a time known as Atlantic City Speedway, was a half-mile oval
(originally dirt and then pavement) that operated from Sept. 1950 through 1979.
Reportedly, upon its closure, the site of the track was to be used for casino bus
parking and general development.

Legendary auto racing promoter Ken Butler, now deceased, directed events at the
track through the final years. He was also known throughout the country
as an organizer of auto stunt shows, many of which were run at Pleasantville. Butler,
who had only one leg, actually drove in many of those thrill events himself and was
famous for his flaming barrier crash while riding on motorcycle. Another famous
promoter at the track was George Stockinger. He also was the promoter of the
indoor events in Atlantic City more than 20 years ago.

However it was stock car racing, with many local driving favorites thrilling the grandstand
fans, which was the prime attraction at the popular racing facility for nearly 30 years.

There were also many special events, such as Three Quarter Midget Car races.
In fact, for the fifth year in a row, the popular TQ-Midgets will be running
indoors that same weekend in Atlantic City, at Boardwalk Hall. Those races
take place on Friday and Saturday, January 12 & 13. That show is part of the
huge Motorsports Weekend at Atlantic City, being presented by Len Sammons
Productions.

The New Jersey-based Garden State Vintage Stock Car Club, which works to
preserve the state’s rich auto racing legacy, will coordinate the “Salute to
Pleasantville Speedway” activities at the Motorsports show. That includes a
gathering of former Pleasantville Speedway race car drivers, who will meet the
attendees and sign a special commemorative card at the display during the
Motorsports weekend; and a comprehensive exhibit of restored stock cars that
ran on that oval and racing memorabilia. Fans are encouraged to bring their
news and photo racing scrapbooks to share with other Pleasantville history
enthusiasts.

Among the track driving favorites planning to be at the reunion are Tony
Siscone, Bunky Higbee, Jerry Camp, Richie Pratt Sr., John Megill, John
LaVance, lady racer Myrtle Faulkenberg, Carl Grinar, Gary Bruckler, Bill
Force and Ray Shea.

For information on participating in the Pleasantville Speedway reunion, you
may call the Garden State Vintage Stock Car Club office at (732)-840-6307.
General information on the combined Motorsports 2007 and Boardwalk Hall
Gambler’s Classic Indoor Racing Weekend may be obtained by calling
(609)-888-3618 or by going to the event website of www.aarn.com.

Information on hotel rooms can be had at the website but for those who are
without internet access please call AC Central Room Reservations at 866.790.9934.
There are rooms available at nearby nationally known hotels at very reasonable rates.


2003 CUP CHAMPION MATT KENSETH WILL BE AT MOTORSPORTS 2007

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ - December 8, 2006 . . . The man who many say was responsible for NASCAR implementing the Chase for the Nextel Cup to decide their champion will be at the Motorsports 2007 Race Car Show presented by VP Racing Fuels.
Matt Kenseth ran away with the Cup championship in 2003 and the following year NASCAR kicked off the new Chase format. The veteran Nextel Cup racer will be appearing at the show set in Atlantic City’s Convention Center on opening day; Friday, January 12th with the specific time to be announced.
The Cambridge, Wisconsin native finished second to Jimmie Johnson in the championship chase just 56 points behind. He was able to claim four wins in the 26 races leading up to the Chase but the best he could do in the 10-race Chase was two top five finishes but it was good enough to tally enough points for a runner-up finish.
Kenseth, driver of the DeWalt Tools Roush Ford, has 14-career Cup wins.
Though he was disappointed by the second place finish Kenseth was happy to be able to improve on his seventh and eighth place finish in the final Chase standings in the previous two seasons.
Kenseth will be joining Nextel Cup Rookie of the Year Denny Hamlin who just recently announced that he would be appearing at the show.
This will be the 22nd edition of the “midwinter motorsports extravaganza” but it will be the first time the show has been presented in Atlantic City and that has created tremendous interest. The show will run from Friday, January 12th through Sunday, January 14th.
Racers and fans are really excited about the show because there will be “Gambler’s Classic” M&R Midgets (Three Quarter Midget and 600cc Micros) racing taking place in the evenings during the same weekend just down the road at Boardwalk Hall.
More than 275 motorsports vehicles were on display at the 2006 show and that number is expected to increase. There will also be a hardcore manufacturer’s section making up a large part of the show and those interested in collectables will find a large area devoted to just that.
Motorsports 2007 presented by VP Racing Fuels will include more than 400 racing dealers representing parts manufacturers, engine builders, safety equipment, racing fuels and lubricants plus much more. Many speedways and sanctioning organizations will be using the show to announce their plans for the 2007 season.
Among the exhibitors already set for the 2007 show are A-1 Racing Products, Classic Enterprises, Wilwood, Pro Race Cars, Bicknell Racing Products, Design 500 Racewear, Gold Rush Trailers, Media Camping Center, Kirkey Fabrication, Robison Racing Products, Star Transporters, Winters Performance, Bert Transmissions, Cargo Trailers, Atlantic Coast Trailers, Troyer Racecars, Art’s Radiators, Behrent’s Performance Warehouse, Genesis Shocks, Hyper Racing and the list goes on.
A complete exhibitor brochure is available by telephoning Joe Pratt at 609.888.3618. He can also help you purchase space and discuss having your race car as part of Motorsports 2007.
“It is truly a huge weekend in the auto racing industry with the show and the indoor racing all happening in the same town,” commented show organizer Len Sammons. “Fans are loving it because they can make one trip and see racing and the show. There are great reasonable rates being offered at local hotels. I think this is going to be a record setting weekend for both events.”
Again this year US Smokeless Tobacco will host the Ms. Motorsports Pageant and there will be opportunities for fans to meet some of their racing favorites (both on the national and local levels) and collect autographs. A variety of industry seminars will be presented during the weekend.
Information on Motorsports 2007 and the Gambler’s Classic M&R Midgets (TQ and 600cc Micros) indoor auto racing events can be found at www.aarn.com.
Fans looking for lodging are invited to check out the website for room rates at a number of local hotels.

MODIFIED STAR TED CHRISTOPHER ENTERS INDOOR RACING EVENT IN ATLANTIC CITY

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ - November 24, 2005 . . . There is no middle ground with Ted Christopher. He’s either loved or hated by race fans. But he always puts on a fan pleasing show.
Christopher, the versatile asphalt Modified stock car racing star from Plainville, Conn., will certainly be one to watch on Fri.-Sat. Jan. 12-13, 2007 when he competes in Atlantic City, N.J.‘s Boardwalk Hall during the fifth running of the Gambler’s Classic M&R Midget Three Quarter Midget and 600 CC Micro event. Christopher will look to join Lou Cicconi Jr. (2006), Jeff Heotzler (2005), Joey Payne (2004) and Andy Mackereth (2003) as modern-era winners of the event (indoor racing was brought back to Boardwalk Hall in '03 after a 22-year absence).
The 48-year-old driver will enter the A.C. event in a TQ he co-owns with noted Modified car owner Ralph Solhem and Donnie Preece. The used car is currently at Solhem’s shop in Milford, Conn., where it will be stripped and completely revamped before the event. The car will carry T.C.‘s trademark No. 13.
In the four previous runnings of the “Gambler’s Classic,” Christopher has
driven for a quartet of different car owners.
“Last year I rented a car and it turned out pretty good,” explained
Christopher, known for his aggressive style on the track.
However, Christopher feels he’ll be much better prepared to run for the win
this year. He’s so confident, in fact, that he took the optional $100 “Gambler’s Fee,” meaning he’ll collect $5,000 if he wins the event.
“It will be so much better going with my own guys and my own car. We’ll know
what we have before we get there.”
Racing on the flat, tight track on the floor of the Boardwalk Hall is something Christopher truly enjoys. “I’m really looking forward to it,” he said with excitement. “I just love racing there - it’s so much fun. It’s like road racing. I get so excited in the car. The track’s small, but the adrenaline rush you get because it’s so quick is great. “Everything happens so fast - it’s really neat.”
Christopher isn’t the only driver who enjoys the indoor action at A.C. Already, over 40 M&R Midgets have pre-entered the Len Sammons Motorsports Productions-presented event, including a wide array of Northeast racing talent.
The Slingshots and Sr. Champ Karts - which will also be in action during the
weekend - are also racking up a high number of entries.
A slew of enthusiastic sponsors have jumped on board, translating into
lucrative cash for the racers in the M&R Midget ranks.
For the first time in 2007, the “Gambler’s Classic” will run in conjunction with Motorsports presented by VP Racing Fuels at Atlantic City Convention Center Jan. 12-14. Already confirmed to appear at Motorsports 2007 is NASCAR Nextel Cup sensation Denny Hamlin, the first rookie ever to make the Chase for the Nextel Cup en route to an impressive third-place finish in the standings.
The show/indoor racing doubleheader sets up a “show by day, racing by night”
doubleheader for race enthusiasts.
Racing begins at 7:45 p.m. on Friday night and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday night. Tickets are currently on sale for the “Gambler’s Classic” by calling the Area Auto Racing News office at (609) 888-3618 or through Ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.com).

The 26-year-old racer who drives the Federal Express sponsored #11 Chevrolet owned by Joe Gibbs will visit the show on Saturday, January 13th, and will participate in an autograph session at a time to be announced.
“We are really excited to have Denny at the show. His popularity is growing as he becomes a fixture on the Cup circuit,” said show organizer Len Sammons. “The great Federal Express television commercials featuring Hamlin and his on track talent have made him a fan favorite.”
Hamlin is the first major star to be signed for Motorsports 2007 but others will be added as the show dates near.

SCHEDULE FOR WEEKEND OF MOTORSPORTS (SHOW AND RACING) IN ATLANTIC CITY SHOULD MAKE FANS HAPPY

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ, JUNE 23, 2006 . . . The weekend of January 12-14 is shaping
up to be one huge motorsports attraction in Atlantic City, N.J.
Run in conjunction with the Motorsports 2007 Expo presented by VP Racing
Fuels, to be held for the first time at the Atlantic City Convention Center,
the thrill of live auto racing will return to Boardwalk Hall when Len
Sammons Motorsports Productions presents the 5th Annual “Gambler’s Classic”
for the Three Quarter Midgets/600cc Micro-Sprints.
The Slingshots and Sr. Champ Karts will also be in competition during the
two-day event. Racing is planned for Friday and Saturday, January 12-13,
while the Motorsports show will span three days.
“This is going to be one big racing weekend,” said Len Sammons, who has
presented the mid-winter Motorsports Show since 1986. He brought indoor
racing back to Atlantic City in January, 2003 after an absence of 22 years.
“The interest we’ve had already from racers, manufacturers, exhibitors and
fans has been outstanding. People are excited.”
Race enthusiasts will now be able to enjoy the Motorsports show by day and
auto racing at night. Racing begins at 7:45 p.m. on Friday and 7 p.m. on Saturday.
Gates will open for competitors at 3 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The Motorsports
show will close at 7 p.m. each night.
Aside from combining the excitement of two outstanding mid-winter weekends,
the indoor race and show combo halves travel costs such as tolls, accommodations
and fuel. The Three Quarter Midgets and 600cc Micro Sprints will again headline
the indoor action with a 40-lap A-Main paying $2,000 to the winner, plus a possible
$3,000 more if they’ve paid the optional “Gambler’s Fee.” That equates to a
possible winner’s share of $5,000. To set the 24-car starting field, the TQs/600s
will run time trials and three “Roaring 20s,” a trifecta of 20-lap qualifying races,
on Friday night.
Saturday’s action will include C- and B-Mains.
Slingshot competitors have the opportunity to race for $1,000 - a $500 purse
plus $500 more if they roll the dice with the “Gambler’s Fee.”
The Slingshots will compete in the “Dirty Dozens,” three 12-lap qualifiers
on Friday night. Two Non-Qualifiers events will be run on Saturday
afternoon, before the 25-lap A-Main takes center stage on Saturday night.
The Sr. Champ Karts have been rewarded for their outstanding show in 2005.
Besides being moved to Saturday night, in front of the big crowd, a $500
winner’s share has been posted this year. Last place will pay $50.
“Everyone really enjoyed the show the Champ Karts put on last year,” Sammons
said. “They earned their right to run on Saturday night (last year, the Sr. Champ
Karts as part of the afternoon Small Car Nationals).”
“Triple 10s” on Friday night and a pair Non-Qualifiers events on Saturday
afternoon will set the field for Saturday night’s 25-lap Sr. Champ Kart
A-Main.
All competitors must enter in advance. No entries will be accepted on race
weekend. Entries may be limited due to parking limitations.
Entries and rules will be available shortly at: www.aarn.com.
Last year, International Super Modified Association driving star “Liquid” Lou Cicconi
Jr. of Aston, Pa., swept the weekend, setting fast time, winning his “Roaring 20” and
taking home $5,000 for the TQ/600 A-Main win. His total weekend earnings: $5,893.39
Cicconi said afterward that winning the main event at Atlantic City was a lifelong dream.
Cicconi joined dirt Modified driver Jeff Heotzler (2005), fellow
Supermodified wheelman Joey Payne (2004) and Canadian Andy Mackareth, a
Can-Am Three-Quarter Midget racer (2003) as A-Main winners since the revival
of the indoor auto racing action in Atlantic City.
Kunkletown, Pa.‘s Ryan Smith, a regular on the United States Auto Club Ford Focus
Midget Series, won the Slingshot portion of the weekend. Brett Stratford (Saturday)
and Andrew Hutchinson (Friday) were Sr. Champ Kart winners.
Sponsorship opportunities remain available for the race and the show.

MOTORSPORTS 2007 AND INDOOR AUTO RACING DOUBLEHEADER IN ATLANTIC CITY, NJ

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ JUNE 13, 2006 . . . Motorsports 2007 presented by VP Racing Fuels,
will move to Atlantic City in January, creating a blockbuster off-season weekend for
motorsports enthusiasts in the seaside resort town.
The 22nd edition of the Motorsports Expo is set for January 12-14 at the plush Atlantic
City Convention Center, Len Sammons Productions announced on
Monday.
The Mid-Winter Motorsports Extravaganza will coincide with the annual Atlantic City Indoor
Race at nearby Boardwalk Hall, where Three Quarter Midgets and 600cc Micro-Sprints
will battle on January 12-13. The Indoor Race has been moved up one week from its 2006
date to make Atlantic City a Mecca of motorsports activity.
Motorsports 2007 moves to the Atlantic City Convention Center after a successful 12-year
run at the Fort Washington (Pa.) Expo Center. The recent sale of the Fort Washington
complex prompted Motorsports 2007 show promoter Lenny Sammons to locate a suitable
new site.
Piggy-backing the show with the Atlantic City Indoor Races, which Len Sammons
Productions has also promoted for the last four years, was the logical solution.
“Bringing Motorsports 2007 to the Atlantic City Convention Center and moving
the Indoor Race to the same weekend will set up a huge weekend for auto racing fans,”
said Sammons, who launched the Motorsports show in 1986. “They will be able to make
a single trip to an exciting city and take in one of the country’s best motorsports shows
during the afternoon and witness exciting live auto racing at night.”
Time schedules for Motorsports 2007 and the Atlantic City Indoor Races are still in the
planning stages, but the show will occupy the morning and afternoon hours and the racing
action will dominate the evenings after the Expo closes on Fri., Jan. 12, and Sat., Jan. 13.
The A.C. Convention Center and Boardwalk Hall are separated by only a few city blocks.
“This move will help take Motorsports 2007 to a new level because the Atlantic City
Convention Center is such a superb, professional facility,” said Sammons. “We’re also
anticipating record attendance for the Indoor Races because of the interest that will be
created by a doubleheader weekend.”
Motorsports 2007 will occupy nearly 300,000 sq. ft. of the A.C. Convention Center, which
serves as a gateway to the town. It is not only easily accessible by car but also by train,
since a New Jersey Transit rail station is connected to the facility.
The show will retain its popular mix of hard-core manufacturer booths and speedway,
race car, collectibles and interactive displays. Free technical seminars for racers will
continue to be offered throughout the event, and fans will have ample opportunities to
obtain free autographs from some of the biggest stars in motorsports.
Detailed exhibitor information for Motorsports 2007 will be available soon, but already
interest in the show is high.
“We’ve gotten an overwhelming response from vendors concerning the move to
Atlantic City,” said show manager Joe Pratt. “Everyone is excited to be part
of a show at first-class venue like the Atlantic City Convention Center.”
Exhibitor info on Motorsports 2007 presented by VP Racing Fuels may be obtained
by calling Joe Pratt at 609-888-3618.
Additional information is available at www.aarn.com.
Info on special hotel room rates in Atlantic City for the weekend of Jan.
12-14 will be available in the near future at www.aarn.com.
