More information on the cars that will be on display and the drivers that will be signing autographs will be released in the coming days.
A featured guest at Motorsports 2017 will be seven time NASCAR Cup Series champion Richard Petty considered the King of NASCAR.
Many other well-known racers and personalities will be appearing at the show with details to be announced.
The 3-day show will again fill 250,000 square feet of the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center with just about everything imaginable in motorsports available for attendees to see.
Over 250 race cars, representing many different segments of the sport, will be on hand. In addition hardcore vendors will be part of the show along with many racing facilities offering information on their 2017 season.
Again, as in the past, free industry seminars will be offered.
And as in the past the very popular Ms. Motorsport Pageant will take place on Saturday.
