The show encompasses the majority of the local short track scene and will continue its week long run through Saturday night, March 11th.
The Phillipsburg Mall, located on Route 22 East in Phillipsburg, NJ, has proven to be a popular setting for this special event and will offer a multitude of race cars, racing memorabilia, collectibles and photos on display throughout the course of the show.

The newest edition to the list of great sponsors for the popular show is the Denise and Randy Smith promoted Hamlin Speedway.

The excitement and wheel to wheel racing action at Hamlin has made the speedway one of the top entertainment values in the country today for small car division racing. The Hamlin Speedway is a must see and do for great family fun and all at affordable pricing at the “Pearl in the Poconos.”
