OAKS, PA January 19, 2019 . . . Taylor Fullin, 21, of Danielsville, PA, was crowned Ms. Motorsports Saturday night. She earned her crown in the Aqua-Duck Water Transport-sponsored competition Saturday night on Day Two of the three-day PPB Motorsports 2019 Race Car & Trade Show at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center.
“I’m very happy and look forward to representing the Show,” said Taylor, a college student whose step brother Corey Edelman races weekly at Mahoning Valley Speedway.
“Taylor will be an outstanding Ms. Motorsports who I’m sure will represent the Show proudly and professionally,” said Len Sammons, originator of the Motorsports Show.
The winner earned $1,500 cash in addition to future poster sales earnings.
Amanda Arms, 25, of Douglassville, PA, was first runner-up, earning $500. Andrea Cap, 28, of York, PA was named second runner-up, taking $250.
Earlier on Saturday afternoon, NASCAR Hall Of Famers Darrell Waltrip and Ray Evernham signed autographs and interacted with Motorsports Show attendees as did Ryan Preece, past NASCAR Modified Touring Series champion who is a 2019 candidate for NASCAR Monster Cup Series Rookie of the Year honors.
“I had a great time,” Waltrip said. “I really enjoyed being here and would recommend this show to anyone who asks.”
“It’s always fun for Erin and me to come back to the northeast,” Evernham said upon departing the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center Saturday early afternoon. “We have a lot of friends here and it was good to see so many people. Great way to spend a weekend.”
Preece, who has been a previous Motorsports Show honoree as an AARN Winningest Asphalt Modified winner, tipped that he still intends to race Modifieds, but only as his Rookie season on the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series allows.
“Cup racing is my priority now,” Preece told Motorsports Show fans. “But my Modified car owner (Ed Partridge) will have a car ready any time I’m able to race it.”
Asphalt Touring Modified driver Matt Hirschman, New England asphalt Late Model racer Tom Fearn and Pennsylvania Micro Sprint ace Garrett Bard signed commemorative posters Saturday afternoon as three of Area Auto Racing News’ Winningest Drivers of 2018.
Prior to the Ms. Motorsports pageant, PPB Motorsports Show promoter Len Sammons presented its Joe Pratt Award of Excellence Award to Earl and Pam Krause. The husband-and-wife team are long time Motorsports staffers with Earl performing show announcing duties and ‘Press Room Pam’ running the Motorsports Show media center jointly with Earl. Earl is also a full- time editor at Area Auto Racing News.
The salutation honors the memory of the late Motorsports Show employee Joe Pratt, whose years of work greatly elevated the standard of the show.
