MOTORSPORTS 2012: Jimmy Spencer to appear

Written by  on Friday, 16 December 2011 10:52

Talented, controversial, popular and outspoken all describe former NASCAR racer Jimmy Spencer. Now a popular member of the SPEED Channel broadcast team the man once known as “Mr. Excitement” when he was racing in NASCAR modified events (twice a champion on that circuit) will be part of the Motorsports 2012 Presented by VP’s SEF Small Engine Fuels Race Car and Trade Show set for January 20 through January 22nd at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA.

Jimmy Spencer is one of the few drivers to have won a race in all three of NASCAR’s top series: Sprint Cup, the Nationwide Series, and the Camping World Truck Series.

The 54-year-old was the winner of two NASCAR Sprint Cup races during this career, both coming in 1994 when he was driving for the legendary Junior Johnson. His wins came in the Pepsi 400 at Daytona International Speedway and the DieHard 500 at Talladega Superspeedway.

Spencer loves to talk about the good old days of racing and is always willing to offer his opinion on current trends in the sport. His segments on SPEED’s NASCAR Race Hub are very popular with fans.

He may be best known for his altercation with Kurt Busch that got him penalized by NASCAR. That incident has been brought up more often in recent days because of Kurt’s current problems with NASCAR and this departure from Penske Racing.

The former Berwick, PA resident is sure to be a big attraction at the Motorsports 2012 show. He will be greeting fans, talking about racing, and signing autographs on Friday, January 20th. Spencer will do a question and answer session with fans from 4:00 - 4:30 p.m. followed by a 90 minute autograph session. Fans can expect expect to get straight forward answers to any question they may ask of Spencer.

Young ladies are also reminded that there is still time to register to be part of the annual BPG Racing Ms. Motorsports Pageant set for Saturday, January 21st. The winner walks off with $1,500 and other perks plus opportunities for personal appearances representing the Motorsports show.

The three day show, January 20-22nd,  covers all of the space available in the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center at Oaks and gives attendees the opportunity to see just about anything and everything imaginable in motorsports. Information on the show may be had by visiting or telephoning 609.888.3618.
