Lentini Auto Salvage Presents FSHS Car Show

The Flemington Speedway Historical Society (FSHS) Car Show happens Saturday, October 18, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM. 

The venue is the Hunterdon County Fairgrounds, Lambertville, NJ, located on Route 179 near its junction with Route 202. 

Sunday, October 19 is the rain date, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

The FSHS Car Show is the region's largest such event. This fourth annual edition is presented by Lentini Auto Salvage. Through seven decades the Ringoes-based business has been a trusted source for quality used auto parts and has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Flemington Speedway that now benefits FSHS.

More than 700 automobiles were displayed last year. All types of vehicles are being actively sought by the event organizers, whose goal is to have 1,000 in 2014. Antique, custom, hot rod, and new cars, vintage and modern race cars, small and large trucks, motorcycles, emergency response equipment, military vehicles, tractors and farm equipment - all are welcome. Registration is $10 per vehicle.

An accompanying flea market and swap meet has grown in parallel with the car show. Vendor fees are $10 for a 10’ by 10’ pole barn space,  $25 for a 20’ by 10’ outdoor space, $100 for a premium end cap, 20’ x 20.’  For those wishing to sell or swap their rides, the designated Car Corral is $20 per vehicle. Registration forms may be downloaded here: <https://www.dropbox.com/s/bbkp09lhcnftt4x/2014CarShowFlyerD.pdf>.

Bradshaw Awards of Flemington has produced fifteen People’s Choice and five Lentini Auto Salvage Recognition awards which will be presented in a drive-through awards ceremony at 2:30 PM. 

Following the award presentations, Jersey Jerky (“America’s Best Damn Beef Jerky”) will resurrect an old Flemington Fair Speedway tradition: “Purple Night,” a promotion originally conceived by the recently departed flamboyant Flemington Fair President, Paul Kuhl. 

“Suckerpunch Suzie,” a popular local party band will perform. Purple Night is highlighted by a Flemington Speedway-themed purple costume contest. Three winners will each receive a trophy and $50, the top fifteen participants will each get a T-shirt and a package of America’s Best Damn Beef Jerky: Jersey Jerky. 

Spectator Admission is $10.00 per carload, with no additional fee for parking. 2014 Car Show apparel and Flemington Speedway souvenirs will be available for purchase at the FSHS display and information center. No alcohol or pets are permitted. 

Event sponsors include Shop Rite of Hunterdon, Everitt Equipment; Hoff's Electrical Service, Allied Septic Service, Arts Radiator & Welding, Champion Tire, Rowe Electric, Hicks Portable Toilets, Hayes Liss Motorsports, Harlan Thompson Racing, and Ditschman/Flemington Ford Lincoln. 

“What an Impression!” is the exclusive event photographer and artist Paul Fenwick of Hillsborough has signed to be the exclusive car show pinstriper. 

Flemington Speedway Historical Society, Inc. is a public charity recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non profit. FSHS’s mission is to preserve, protect, and document the history of the Flemington Fairgrounds and Speedway. Event proceeds benefit FSHS and its partner in the promotion, the Hunterdon County 4-H and Agricultural Fair.

Polenz Remembrance at October Meeting

2014: Tuesday, October 21: The monthly meeting for October will be a tribute to Rich Polenz, the popular and talented local racer who left us too soon. Several of Polenz’s friends - colleagues and competitors - have agreed to speak, and several more have told us they will be in the audience. We hope you will be, too. Flemington Elks Lodge #1928 is the venue, doors open at 6:30 and the meeting gets underway shortly after 7:00 PM.

1979, Saturday, September 29: Rich Polenz (3) and Ken Brenn Jr. (24) duel through turn two. Thirty-five years ago, Brenn was on his way to another victory in the Grant King 24. Sammy Beavers was second, Fritz Epright third, Larry Kline fourth, Frank Cozze fifth, Rich Polenz sixth, Bob Torecky seventh, Craig McCaughey eighth, Chip Slocum ninth, with 1979’s first time Modified track champion Billy Pauch rounding out the top ten. Thanks to photographer Jack Kromer for sharing this photo.
