FRANKLIN, PA .H&H Motorsports and the Cranberry Mall are rapidly preparing for the
upcoming annual Cranberry Mall Race Car Show held March 4-7, 2010, at the Cranberry
Mall located on Route 322 east of Franklin. The 2009 Awards Ceremony will be held
at the mall show on Saturday, March 6th at 6 p.m.

With over 30 race cars already entered, this year's show is guaranteed to be action
packed and filled with the best drivers around. "Not only do we have a lot of cars,
we have a lot of fan-related activities planned as well," said track owner Rich

The mall show is set to kickoff Thursday with a schedule release, meet the drivers
and promoters, and a best looking car contest, in which a winner will be announced
on Saturday.

Friday, a Kid's Club coloring contest will take place during the afternoon, and the
best picture will be featured on the front of the 2010 Tri-City Speedway Kid's Club
T-shirts. "T.C.", the Tri-City Speedway Roadrunner mascot, will also be on hand,
along with Dexter the Clown. In addition, a press conference will take place during
the evening to discuss the upcoming season with the promoters.

Saturday is dedicated to honoring the drivers and will feature the popular pre-race
radio show "Turn 5" from 4-5 p.m.. Dependent on the local basketball playoff
broadcast schedule, "Turn 5" will be broadcasting live at the mall and on KQW 96.3
FM. as co-hosts Joe Lodnosky and Brian Spaid interview drivers, promoters, and fans
to create an amazing show. A driver autograph session will take place during the
radio show and autograph cards for kids will be available at the Ray's Racing
Collectibles Trailer located in the mall. Finally, the event that drivers and fans
have anxiously awaited is here! Rather than the same habitual banquet with costly
tickets and limited space, the 2009 Tri-City Speedway track champions will be
honored on Saturday night during a special awards ceremony, and everyone is invited.

The mall show will wrap up Sunday evening at 4 p.m. as we say farewell to the
drivers and look forward to seeing them on the track this spring. Opening night at
Tri-City Speedway is scheduled April 25th featuring the first 4-Star Racing program
of the season, which includes the Engles Trucking Big Block Modifieds, 4 Your Car
Connection FASTRAK Late Models, Welding Technologies & Shaw Industries E Mods, and
E.F. Rogers Plumbing & Heating Pro Stocks.

It's still not too late to enter the mall show! Mall show entry forms are being
accepted until March 1, 2010. For a complete entry form visit or call 814-676-3000.

Tri-City Speedway is owned and operated by H&H Motorsports. They have promoted
Sunday night racing at the popular facility starting in 2009. The DIRTcar Big Block
Modifieds, FASTRAK Late Models, E Mods and Pro Stocks race each week at the Venango
County half-mile dirt oval. Tri-City is located seven miles north of Franklin, Pa.,
off State Route 417.
