ADAMS BROTHERS USED AUTO PARTS SIGNS ON FOR 9TH ANNUAL QUAKER STEAK & LUBE DIRT TRACK HEROES CAR SHOWadmin
One of the highlights of the many that will be showcased at the Ninth Annual Quaker Steak & Lube Dirt Track Heroes Show will be an evening in which the young racing stars have a chance to shine is the “Stars of Tomorrow” night. The management staff of the show has reached out to all of the local Quarter Midget clubs in the area for the fans to meet the driving stars they will be rooting for in the future. The past, present and future of auto racing will all join forces together under one roof in Phillipsburg, New Jersey. The successful show kicks off on Sunday, March 6th with the honoring of one of the top local Modified stars “The Belvidere Bandit” Carl “Fuzzy” Van Horn.
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 show continues to be FREE of charge to the mall traffic and the 2016 edition of the show continues to be the trend setter of the many shows that are scheduled during the year. With an exciting and diverse schedule of events to whet the appetite of any true race fan, large crowds are expected to fill the wide walkways of the Phillipsburg Mall.
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.
