Day by day the time inches closer to the start of the Tenth Annual Quaker Steak & Lube Dirt Track Heroes Show. The management staff of the show continues to lock in the many components needed to produce a successful show and this year's edition of the show is once again reaching out to all of the local Drag Racing clubs and Dragways in the area to join together for one evening of the show to talk about the drag racing for the followers of the straight line racing. Drag Racing was featured last year for the first time and was a successful addition to the show. The interest has been phenomenal for the event and will bring the past, present and future of all auto racing ventures under one roof in Phillipsburg, New Jersey. The successful show kicks off on Sunday, March 5th with the honoring of one of the top local Modified stars "The Pride of Pen Argyl" Tighe Scott and noted author and publisher Lew Boyd (Paved Track/Dirt Track) and will complete its week long run on March 11th.
