Northeast Motorsports Expo Featuring EJP Racing & PEP Classic CarsNortheast Motorsports Expo
New England’s longest continuously running trade show, the Northeast Motorsports Expo, continues its streak this weekend by celebrating its 25th anniversary at the Augusta Civic Center. The Expo & Trade show will host multiple vendors, seminars, and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers Ricky Craven and Steve Park.
PEP Classic Hosts Dick Berggren, and Classic Cars.
A motorsports expo wouldn’t be complete without classic cars. PEP Classic Cars will be displaying a 1941 Ford pickup and a 1939 Tear Drop trailer. If you want to chat with the guys who work in the PEP Classic Cars shop, then be sure to swing by the booth anytime throughout the weekend.
PEP will also have Dr. Dick Berggren in the booth. Dick began racing in 1967 and won 26 events. Mr. Berggren then moved on to become a pit road race reporter for ESPN and has announced races for CBS, TBS, and TNN. Dick Berggren Berggren was also announced lead pit reporter for NASCAR on fox in 2001 and retired after the 2012 FedEX 400 at Dover International Speedway. After he was quoted saying “I’ve always traveled to local tracks where I still enjoy sitting in the stands with a hot dog in one hand and a beer in the other, watching the local heroes. I can’t get enough of local-level racing so I’ll do more of that now.” Mr. Berggren will be promoting a 20,000 square foot museum that will be located at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The museum will be the future home of a collection of racecars, memorabilia, engines, motorcycles, books, trophies, and more. Berggren will be in the booth on Friday evening and throughout Sunday.
EJP Racing Brings The Braap!
In addition to NASCAR’s famed drivers and announcers, there will be an up and coming driver by the name of Reid Lanpher. Reid recently signed a racing contract with Junior Motorsports. By signing Reid Lanpher, JR Motorsports teamed up with one of the youngest and most promising super late model drivers in the country. Reid will be available in the EJP Racing booth for autographs and questions starting on Friday night from 7:00 PM to close. Reid will return to the booth on Saturday morning for a couple hours and will again make an appearance Saturday evening and throughout the day on Sunday.
Also in the EJP Racing booth, there will be the two-wheeled racing team of Lane Shorey and Patrick Prescott. Both will be in attendance with their gear and bikes. Patrick and Lane had a successful 2012-year on the EJP two-wheeled racing team and are looking forward for an even better 2013.
