Event coordinator Billy Tedford said there will be a lot for racing and automotive enthusiasts to enjoy at the Second Annual Racers Expo to be held Saturday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Crossroads Arena.
Among the items racing regulars will want to see are dirt track cars, pulling tractors, mini sprints, drag racers and other different forms of racing cars and Corinth RV will have an RV and a camper available.
“This expo just promotes racing in general. We have several vendors coming. People can come and see the stuff they have to offer,” said Tedford.
Among the vendors coming, Tedford said he has one car company out of Tennessee that builds race cars. There will also be vendors who design decals and signs.
Tedford said two racetracks will be represented — one out of West Memphis, Ark., and the other out of Columbus, and they will be on hand to discuss racing and talk about their upcoming racing seasons.
“Columbus has the first race coming up next weekend [Feb. 25] and that starts the racing season this year,” said Tedford.
The coordinator said there will also be new and used automotive parts. He said most people for whom cars are a hobby will want to attend the event. This is the second time he has hosted this event. The first event was held in his home area of Pontotoc.
“This is almost a swap meet or automotive sale,” said Tedford. “There will be people there displaying cars – giving their sponsors a little bit of recognition. We are just getting everybody ready for the racing season.”
Admission for the event is $3 for everyone over the age of 12. Admission for children 12 and under is free.
