DARRELL WALTRIP’S FIRST NASCAR CUP RIDE TO BE ATTENTION GRABBER AT PPB MOTORSPORTS 2019 RACECAR AND TRADE SHOW JANUARY 18-20

                WALTRIP WILL MEET FANS AND SIGN AUTOGRAPHS ON JANUARY 19

OAKS, PA January 13, 2019 . . . Out of the many race cars, more than 200, that will be on display during the PPB Motorsports 2019 Racecar and Trade Show, one that will get a huge amount of attention from attendees will be the two-tone brown No. 95 Terminal Transport 1971 Mercury Cyclone that NASCAR Hall of Famer Darrell Waltrip drove in his very first NASCAR Cup race.

                The three day show, January 18-20, fills the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa with just about everything imaginable in motorsports.

                And that first Cup race for Waltrip was the 500-miler at Talladega in 1972. He finished 38th after blowing the engine.

                “It was a 1969 Mercury when I bought the car from Holman and Moody,” said Waltrip, a three time NASCAR Cup Series champion. The car had quite a history. The car had quite a history as it used the same chassis as the Holman and Moody 1967 Ford Fairlane that Mario Andretti drove to victory in the Daytona 500.

                “It is a nice old restored car with a lot of history,”Waltrip stated. “It is actually race ready.”

                Since that first start in Cup racing Waltrip became a standout performer as he was able to tally 84 victories of which 37 happened on Superspeedways. He earned 59 Cup poles. He is the only driver to win $500,000 in a season 18 times. And in 1990 he became the first Cup driver to win $10 million.

                The 71-year-old was not only a big winner in Cup Series racing but also won in the NASCAR Busch Series, ASA, IROC, ARCA, NASCAR All-American Challenge Series, All Pro, USAC and ARTGO Challenge Series. He was also a top competitor on short tracks in the Tennessee area when first starting his career.

                The popular FOX Sports TV personality, an analyst during the FOX coverage of NASCAR events, will be on center stage at the show on Saturday afternoon for two hours to talk about his racing career, TV work, books, movies, and so much more that has been part of his colorful career. Attendees will be free to ask the man named one of NASCAR’s 50 Greatest Drivers questions. And, of course, there will be autographs.

                Headlining the show will be Waltrip and Ray Evernham along with Ryan Preece who will be looking to capture the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series Rookie of the Year honors.

There will be a large number of displays with speedways offering information on their 2019 seasons. Hardcore racing vendors will be a big part of the show and fans will have the opportunity to gain some bargains from vendors offering collectible items.

A number of free industry seminars will be offered.

One of the most popular events during the three day show has been, and will again be, the Ms. Motorsports Pageant sponsored by Aqua Duck Water Transport that will see one woman walk off with a $1,500 cash prize along with a poster deal.

Motorsports 2019 opens on Friday, January 18 at 2 p.m., then at 11 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The show closes at 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and at 4 p.m. on Sunday.  On Sunday, all children 12 and under are FREE with a parent.

Tickets are available daily at the door one hour before the show opens. To stay informed on the latest show news check in at www.motorsportstradeshow.com or call 609-888-3618
