FORT WASHINGTON, PA DECEMBER 13, 1999 . . . Fifteen time Pennzoil World of Outlaws sprint car champion Steve Kinser will be part of the 15th annual Pennzoil Motorsports Auto Racing Trade Show. The three day show, expected to attract well over 40,000 people, will take place at the Fort Washington, PA Expo Center, January 14-16. Kinser will have his Quaker State sponsored sprint car, with which he finished third in the final point standings this season, on display. Joining the Quaker State entry will be a number of other World of Outlaw sprint cars as part of the massive Pennzoil display area at the show. "Interest in the Pennzoil World of Outlaw sprint cars is at an all time high. Just recently Bristol Motor Speedway officials announced that they will cover their asphalt surface, usually reserved for NASCAR stock car racing, and run World of Outlaw sprint races in June. And the sprints will be featured at new tracks being built at Lowe's Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway. The Nashville Network will carry the Pennzoil World of Outlaws live 15 times during the 2000 season. Having Steve Kinser as part of our show and being able to bring in a number of sprint cars as part of the Pennzoil display will create a great deal of additional interest in our show from sprint car fans," said show manager Joe Pratt.
