Kerry Earnhardt to visit with fans at Motorsports 2003.
FORT WASHINGTON, PA /TRENTON, NJ, DECEMBER 9, 2002 . . . Kerry Earnhardt has been somewhat the "forgotten Earnhardt" for a number of years. His father Dale, a legend in NASCAR stock car racing, was a seven time NASCAR Winston Cup champion before his untimely death during the running of the Daytona 500 in 2001. His younger brother Dale, Jr., is a two time NASCAR Busch Series champion and one of the outstanding stars of NASCAR Winston Cup competition.
Kerry has yet to win a championship but it is not for the lack of trying. The 33-year-old racer spent most of the 2002 season racing the SUPERCUTS sponsored Chevy, owner by Armando Fitz and former NFL great Terry Bradshaw. He had a number of impressive outings but was not able to crack victory lane.
Earnhardt has been a winner on the ARCA RE/MAX Series circuit. The talented veteran, with a name that is recognized not only in motorsports but in all sports, is looking to move his career forward with a continuing NASCAR Busch Series program in 2003 and some ventures in the elite status of NASCAR Winston Cup racing where his father made such a name for himself.
Kerry Earnhardt will be making his first ever appearance at the Motorsports 2003 Fan & Racer Extravaganza when he appears on Sunday, January 12th as part of the closing afternoon activities. Earnhardt will be available for autographs and to have the opportunity to chat with fans of the sport. Both Dale and Dale Jr. have appeared at past shows and have been popular attractions. It is expected that Earnhardt will attract a large number of fans and will create some fans for himself as he continues to "grow his racing career."
Earnhardt will be just one of several top names in the sport that will be making appearances at the three day Motorsports 2003 show that opens at the Fort Washington, PA Expo Center on Friday, January 10th at 1 p.m. The show, covering 275,000 square feet and offers just about everything there is in motorsports, will continue through Sunday, January 12th at 6 p.m. The show is expected to attract more than 40,000 people who will have the opportunity to see more than 150 motorsports vehicles on display, visit more than 600 exhibit booths offering everything in motorsports, find out what the latest plans are for racing at their favorite speedways, purchase the latest collectibles from dozens of vendors on hand and more.
In fact there will be opportunities to participate in a variety of seminars and watch demonstrations at the Motorsports Garage area. Again this year the US Tobacco Ms. Motorsports Contest will be a highlight of the three day show as will the Kid's Big Wheel Contest.
And the always popular autograph sessions for the many national, regional and local motorsports competitors and personalities attending the show will again be offered.
