Dirt Track Heroes Car Show


FEBRUARY 25, 2020




With the 13th Annual Dirt Track Hereos show less than one week away the jammed pack schedule offers something for all fan each day. “For the opening ceremonies on Friday, we really want to honor Steve and Ed Pados for all they have all they have done not only with this show but for the entire racing community”, noted event organizer Justin Beltrame. The Pados Brothers have done so much for racing and the Dirt Track Heroes event that it is appropriate to salute them in the opening of the show.

The Saturday show kicks off with the Small Car Saturday event sponsored by Snyderville Raceway and Oreville Kart Club. Drivers from all small car classes can attend to talk about their racing career and schedule for the 2020 season. Special Guest Jon Keller will be on hand to talk not only about the classic Trenton win but also his season and chat will all the young drivers. After that we will head into an autograph session with many of the legends of Dorney Park and Mahoning Valley. The icing on the cake for Saturday will be the “2nd Annual Premio Foods Sausage Eating Contest”. Pete Telesco and his team will have their stomach satisfying sausages ready to go for some lucky contestants to compete for a $100.00 prize.

Sunday is a day for Doug Hoffman and Nazareth Speedway. Many drivers will be on hand for an autograph session while we salute Doug Hoffman a man who has won some of the biggest races in the Northeast scene on both Dirt and Asphalt.

Also taking place on all three days is a tire changing competition thanks to Steve Young and the 187 Dirt Track Media modified. The top two from each day will be receive prizes for their efforts.
