Searock Fabrication and Speed Supplies On Board For 9th Annual Quaker Steak & Lube Dirt Track Heroes Showadmin
Behind the scenes, the defining details and prep work continue at a high level pace as the energetic Dirt Track Heroes management staff place the many pieces together for another highly successful gathering of the past, present and future of auto racing coming together under one roof in Phillipsburg, New Jersey. The Ninth Annual Quaker Steak & Lube Dirt Track Heroes Show is edging closer to the opening day of the event set to return to the Phillipsburg Mall in 2016 with Sunday, March 6th chosen to be the lid lifter to the week long show. The show encompasses the majority of the local short track racing scene and will continue through Saturday night, March 12th. The Phillipsburg Mall, located on Route 22 East in Phillipsburg, NJ, has proven to be an ideal setting for this special event.
The show will once again offer a multitude of race cars, racing memorabilia, collectibles and photos on display throughout the course of the week long event. The always FREE of charge racing event continues to be the trend setter of the many shows that are scheduled throughout the year and gives the loyal racing fans a chance to see their favorite driving legends or one of the new upstarts talents chat about their racing careers and sign autographs for them.
Quaker Steak & Lube, or The Lube(r) to loyalists, the award-winning casual dining concept known for its Best Wings USA and over 25 signature sauces, is fully prepped and geared as the lead sponsor for the 9th Annual Dirt Track Heroes Car Show. Quaker Steak & Lube, which opened in Phillipsburg, New Jersey in August of 2014, signed on with the successful show last February and were extremely pleased with the excellent results and the great feedback they received from their initial venture with the popular annual racing oriented show. The Pohatcong Township (Phillipsburg, NJ) Quaker Steak & Lube is located at 1304 US Route 22, Phillipsburg, NJ, and welcomes all race fans and families to stop by their location when visiting the New Jersey area to be re-charged and re-fueled. The restored Bob Pickell driven 300 Pinto is on the rack at Quaker Steak and one can request a table right underneath the car.
Back on board for the show’s growing list of sponsors for 2016 is Searock Fabrication and Speed Supplies located at 2172 Community Drive in Bath, Pennsylvania. The speed supplier is headed up by veteran race campaigner Steve Searock who has logged in some good wins and plenty of track time throwing clay at the local speedways in the Sportsman and 358 Modified divisions.
