Wallace and Wallace to appear at Motorsports 2003 Show.
FORT WASHINGTON, PA/TRENTON, NJ December 14, 2002 . . . Former NASCAR Winston Cup champion Rusty Wallace and his younger brother, Kenny, an outstanding performer in Winston Cup and Busch Series racing will be appearing at the Motorsports 2003 Fan & Racer Extravaganza. The three day show takes place at the Fort Washington, PA Expo Center with doors opening at 1 p.m. on Friday, January 10th and the show continuing through 6 p.m. Sunday, January 12th.
Rusty Wallace, driver of the Miller Lite #2 Ford entry during the 2002 Winston Cup season, looked like he would have a shot at winning a second title for much of the season. However the veteran racer had to settle for seventh in the final standings and his 16 year streak of winning NASCAR Winston Cup races each of those seasons came to an end.
Rusty and the Roger Penske owned Winston Cup team will be making a switch to Dodge entries for 2003 and Rusty is quite excited about the change. Hopefully the veteran racer will be in a position to talk more about his plans for 2003 at Motorsports 2003 and he will be spending time with fans as he signs autographs on Saturday, January 11th.
Kenny Wallace, the youngest of three Wallace brothers racing in Winston Cup (Mike will not be at the show, at least not that we know of), will be running for Bill Davis Racing in a Dodge with Stacker 2 as the sponsor. Kenny is very popular with fans and is outspoken, humorous and is becoming very well known because of the Stacker 2 TV commercials that he performs in. Kenny will be signing autographs and greeting fans on the opening day of the show, Friday.
The Wallace Brothers will be joining other NASCAR stars such as Kerry Earnhardt and Dave Blaney who will also be part of the show autograph sessions.
Additional announcements regarding drivers and personalities that will be appearing at the show will be made in coming weeks.
The three day show covers 275,000 square feet of the Fort Washington, PA Expo Center making it the largest show presented at the facility. More than 150 motorsports vehicles of all types will be on display. Fans will have a chance to meet many top racing talents and personalities, get up close to the display cars, add to their collectibles collection with many vendors offering special show prices and collect speedway schedules as many of the top racing facilities will have displays at the show.
More than 600 exhibit booths will be filled with everything motorsports with racers having the opportunity to see what is new in the "hardcore racing section" and fans along with racers will be kept busy with seminars, Motorsports Garage demonstrations, and special attractions such as the always popular U.S.Tobacco Ms Motorsports Contest and the Kid's Big Wheel races.
