A formal announcement was made by Phillip Walker with the Piedmont Racing Expo and Jeff Gilder of Racers Reunion at the 23rd Annual Performance Racing Industry (PRI) trade show in Orlando, Florida Friday, December 9. A RacersReunion will be held for the Raleigh Fairgrounds Speedway in conjunction with the 24th Annual Piedmont Racing Expo held annually at the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, where the half mile dirt oval ran NASCAR Grand National (Now Sprint Cup) races from 1955 until 1970. Junior Johnson won the first race there and Richard Petty won the last one.
Walker and Gilder are working to get as many former drivers as possible to attend the reunion. A special autograph session is scheduled for the RacersReunion on Saturday, January 15 from 12noon until 2pm.
In addition to the NASCAR races, weekly racing was also held at the Fairgrounds for many years. Drivers who raced the weekly division races are also invited to participate. Any drivers who can attend the event are asked to notify Walker or Gilder in order to arrange credentials for the show. Walker can be reached at 919-215-3351 and Gilder is available at 843-997-6645.
