CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The region’s racers are less than a month away from seeing the best deals of the season at the Charlotte Racers Expo trade show and auction on Jan. 25-26 at the Metrolina Tradeshow Expo Center.
The Charlotte Racers Expo is in its third year of existence and has expanded since the inaugural event. More than 70 different companies will have representatives on-hand, and many of those companies will be selling new merchandise in the trade show for racers to carry home the same day. Manufacturers will also be on hand to educate racers on their products, most of which will be for sale through authorized dealers at the event.
“This event has already exceeded my expectations for growth after last year,” said Larry McDaniels, promoter of the Charlotte Racers Expo. “We’ve had bigger interest in the auction than ever before, and it’s all quality consignments – no junk or Cup stuff in our auction. The trade show is quickly turning into a one-stop shop for racers with numerous exhibitors selling items at the show and taking orders for larger and custom items on-site. It really is amazing how much a racer can accomplish at our event for the upcoming race season.”
The Charlotte Racers Expo will open to the general public Jan. 25 at 8 a.m. and remain open until 7p.m. On Jan. 26, the show and auction opens to the public at 9 a.m. and closes around 3 p.m. More information is available online at CharlotteRacersExpo.com.
