The long off-season is nearly
over, and there is no better way to ring in a new racing season than to
come to the Tiffin Mall this weekend, March 23-25, for the annual Northern
Ohio Sprint Car Show. The NOSCS is once again being made possible by the
generous support of Fremont Speedway, Attica Raceway Park and Coors Light
Beer. Local racing enthusiast Steve "Scoop" Hartzell is in his 5th year
as NOSCS event promoter and organizer.
The 2007 NOSCS is already
booked to capacity, featuring fire-breathing Sprint Cars as well as the
ever-popular Dirt Trucks, Attica Late Models, Karts, vintage cars, vendors
Attica Raceway Park and Fremont
Speedway will have displays at the show for the benefit of racers and fans
throughout the weekend. Also presenting a display all weekend will be the
All Star Circuit of Champions. The sound and feel of the sprint car experience
will be ever-present as Tim Nickles brings his nationally famous Tim's
Sprint Car Simulators.
The show begins to take shape
on Thursday night at 7:00 as set-up day welcomes this year's field of cars
to the Tiffin Mall. The NOSCS then officially opens on Friday during normal
Saturday will be the big
day of the weekend, as the Buckeye Speed Zone kicks off the list of events.
A special live 2 hour broadcast will begin at 12:30 in the Hoserville Ohio
room, which is adjacent to center court in the old Osterman store. At 3:00,
at the same location, the annual Hoserville Ohio Benefit Auction begins
in an effort to raise funds for the very worthwhile Hoserville Ohio Injured
Saturday evening will feature
a Racing Season Kickoff Party at the Moose Lodge on the north edge of Tiffin
on state route 53. This event will feature the very popular local rock
band, the Mongrels, playing from 7:00 until midnight. Admission is just
$2 per person, with abundant food and drink available at reasonable prices.
This event is a Runion Racing Team production.
The 2007 NOSCS will culminate
with the annual awards ceremony in center court on Sunday at 4:30. Trophy
awards will be given to the Merchant's Choice, the People's Choice, and
the coveted Racer's Choice Award which is chosen by the racers themselves.
Plaque awards will be given to the Dirt Truck of the Year, Attica Late
Model of the Year and the Kart of the Year. Entries will be permitted to
recieve just one award per car, with the Racer's Choice considered to be
the top priority award.
Come out this weekend and
join us for one of the best mall-based sprint car shows in America.
