Oaks, PA – Aisles were jammed, cash registers were ringing and flashbulbs were clicking non-stop at the PPB Motorsports 2022 Show on Friday, January 21, Day One of the annual show that was unable to take place in 2021 owing to the pandemic.

The highlight of Day One was the annual Aqua-Duck Water Transport Ms. Motorsports pageant. Morgan Rochelle-Bealer of Schnecksville, PA was crowned Ms. Motorsports 2022. In addition to her beauty, Morgan is a racer, driving 600 Micro Sprints primarily at Hamlin Speedway. Megan Williams of Kutztown, PA was first runner-up and Emilee Mills of Milford, DE was third runner-up. Ms. Motorsports 2020-2021, Andrea Cap, crowned her successor.

Racing parts manufacturers, distributors, and speedway operators praised the size of and the nature of the crowd that passed through the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center throughout the afternoon and evening Friday.

JC’s Race Parts of Barberton, OH was a first-time PPB Show exhibitor. “I do 20 shows a year and Motorsports had always conflicted with another show closer to home. That show was canceled this year and I was able to be here,” Jeremy Canada, JC principal said. “I’m very happy with the way the show is turning out. I understand that Saturdays at this show are usually bigger and expect an even better day tomorrow.” JC’s sells race fuel containers, catch cans, and related hardware.

Peter Reynolds, Director of Marketing at Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, NY, was ‘iron-manning’ the track’s booth that featured Tanner VanDoren’s Big Block Modified. “I’ve seen a lot of drivers who race with us here at the show, met a lot of others who are interested in racing at Orange County this year who wanted to ask some questions about our schedule, and a lot of fans who are interested in getting info about buying tickets. It was a great first day for the Motorsports Show.”

American Racer Tire of Indiana, PA, was represented by Dustin Leverknight. “I spent the whole day answering questions from racers,” Leverknight said. “It’s good to see such interest. Some of what we had to tell the racers wasn’t necessarily welcome news, but it is always a benefit to meet the racers face to face, and that’s what this show allows.”
Randy LaJoie, President of The Joie Of Seating in Mooresville, NC, said that he is coming off his best year in the past ten. “A lot of the shows we used to go to have fallen by the wayside. Getting back here to Motorsports this weekend feels good,” LaJoie said.

Reading, PA-based DMI/Bulldog Rear Ends day-to-day operations manager Dave Ely was very pleased with PPB Motorsports 2022 Day One activity. “We were busy today. It’s important for us to be here. This show and others, to my way of thinking, deserve the support of businesses who benefit from it,” Ely shared.

One of the must see attractions will be one of the new SRX (Superstar Racing Experience) race cars that will be featured in a second year of competition at a variety of tracks around the nation during 2022.

Some of the well-known drivers that competed in the inaugural season included Indy 500 winner Helio Castroneves, Marco Andretti, Bill Elliott, Willy T. Ribbs, Doug Coby, Tony Kanaan, Hallie Deegan and others. Some are expected to be back for season two with some new names being added.

Races at six different half-mile dirt and asphalt short tracks were 90 minutes long with a “halftime” break so adjustments could be made. It is possible that additional tracks will be included for the new season. Details on tracks, drivers and more will be announced shortly.

Founder Stewart compares SRX to the famous IROC Series of the past which featured identical cars being raced by an all-star cast of drivers. Early in Evernham’s career he was a key member of the IROC staff making him a key part of SRX’s first season.

The SRX car will be one of nearly 200 race cars of all kinds on display at the two day show. Many speedways and organizations will use the show to announce their plans for the new season in Pocono Raceway, New Egypt Speedway, Bridgeport Motorsports Park, Delaware Int’l and many more.

OAKS, PA December 30, 2021 . . . A roundtable discussion and several key seminars are in place for the 36th edition of Pioneer Pole Building Motorsports Trade and Race Car show taking place at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA January 21 and 22.

They’ll be joined by two of the best today, Billy Pauch, Jr. and Mike Mahaney.

He’s also worked to showcase these upcoming racers in their starts weekly at the Kutztown, PA Action Track he co-promotes.

Each panelist will share their views on differences between those who merely drive race cars and those who are becoming racers, and what it has taken for them to transition to a consistent up-front runner and race winner.

Is it just consistency – or are there other intangibles? It’s a discussion that promises to be time well spent for aspiring young drivers trying to make their ways in the sport, and for their parents who seek to find the most productive path for their children in the sport!

Beginning at 12:30 in the seminar room, Schmick will present an information seminar on the advantage of using coil springs; stacking coils; loads vs. rates; linear, progressive, digressive rates; tunning with spring rubbers; tender spring vs. helper spring; compressed vs extended load numbers and coil spring maintenance.

Schmick’s the expert and he’s will to share his knowledge and answer questions so come with your pad and pencil and have questions ready. A free drawing will also be held with the winner receiving two Eibach Springs.

Dirt Sportsman racing will be the topic in the seminar room for one hour beginning at 2:00 PM on Saturday. Matt Janczuk, the 2021 DIRTcar Sportsman champion from Oneida, NY will be the key note speaker.

Janczuk, a respected veteran of the dirt Sportsman ranks, will cover all the basics he used to win 19 features and five championships in 2021 from the work at the race shop to race day changes.

Janczuk, a nine-time champion at Utica-Rome Speedway, will cover what he feels is needed for a new race team moving up to get started. He’ll go over his weekly maintenance check-list, touch on motor maintenance, valve springs and oil. He’ll spend time on chassis set-up, shocks and springs.

As a successful driver, he’ll be able to answer questions on following an ever-changing track surface and what tire prep is needed to be successful and save money. Drivers making the move up from small cars or current Sportsman drivers wanting to up their game need to attend with questions in hand for a driver known for helping his fellow competitors!

Racing Engine, Carb & Injector Maintenance and Trouble Shooting will be the one hour topic in the seminar room on Saturday beginning at 3:30. Mark Bitner, a veteran Modified and Sprint Car racer as well as a successful engine builder at Bitner Automotive in Trenton, NJ, will offer his insight and help to race teams.

Bitner will outline the proper engine care program for race cars fueled both by carburetors or injectors a team should follow. He’ll also help prepare team members on how to trouble shoot when problems develop.

Racers often lose valuable laps and thousands of dollars trying to solve a nagging, missing engine. What Bitner has to say could come in handy on race night.

Hirschman will present the proper methods of maintaining, setting up and documenting the work to help advance a team into a winner in asphalt Modified or Sportsman competition. He’ll be available to answer questions and offer driving advice, race strategy and planning that can especially benefit the young racer trying to advance in the sport.
