Here's Dean again.. this time with #357 Mike Corcoran
"Circle 2" John McCaughey get's interviewed by Bob Stull. John raced and built the potent late models of Stan Janiszewski and Bob Travagline
Speaking of Bob Travagline, that's "Bounty Bob" (#71X) on the right talking with strong late model, then dirt sportsman... then asphalt racer #17BPhil Cox.
Gary Butler is all set for 2010 with a small block and a big block... Only problem is that I can't remember which is which?
Strong runner in the red #68 Late Model class at Flemington, Gary looks to have one of his best years in the modified division at New Egypt Speedway in 2010.
Gary's daughter Allyson #MISS 00, and son Jack in the #00Jr run Karts with the same color and # scheme.
Great to see the safety improvements that have been made inside today's modifieds.
...wasn't always that way!
...pretty sure this one will be driven by Bobby Butler at New Egypt Speedway
Really cool looking Micro's on hand... Here's the Liberty Discount Fuel sponsored #26 of Mike Caropolo
A few words on the inside deck of Kory Fleming's #704 for those looking down from above...
Ryan Polenz Legend car was a favorite of the smallest of fans, once they saw that it had a door that worked!
Good to see the entire Polenz team on hand.
Program Dynamic's Steve Barrick chats with Flemington Sportsman competitor #2 Dave Gunther at the Flemington Speedway Historical Society booth.
"Dirt Track Hero Models" from Mike Osborne
We liked the looks of them all, but really liked the body work on the Hager Falcon #43.
Speaking of cool looking Falcon's... Here's Jim Biehl's #7.
Good size crowd on hand - even with all the rain and wind outside making travel difficult...
...With all the time and effort putting into restoring old racecars, and getting them out where they can be seen, this might be the most important reason why!
Looks like the #B6 has a small block, and 70's Modified Driver #07 & #3aWyatt Jacobus under the hood!
"Internet Gold".... (We think we know who this is, but we promised not to reveal his secret identity...)
That's it from this year's Phillipsburg Mall Show - Great people, great conversations... Great job by Brett Deyo, The Pados' Brothers and IRCO Community Federal Credit Union and everyone who was involved in making the show happen. Also, thanks to all those who made arrangements to have their cars on display. Now that the shows are over, be sure to get out and support your local speedways in a big way in 2010!

This one caught our eye... Ryan Osborne's #38
Not sure who pilots this one, but we're pretty sure that its headed to New Egypt in 2010..

Great to see Frankie on hand...
...and here's a few that'll be running in 2010:
Julia Larsen and Kurt Bettler will be splitting the driving chores on the #7L
Gary Butler has small block and big block power... and if they don't work out, I guess he can give one of the Karts out front a try!
... We caught this guy checking out the doors on the #00... (No Rick.. we do not have a tape measure !!!)
... "The Butler Did It"... in this case, it's Mike Butler
Willie Osmun is ready for opening day...
NES Sportsman driver Ryan Hoffman always liked the looks of the Norcia cars, so you can see the influence on his choice of colors...
...Word is that David Van Horn will be running at New Egypt Speedway in 2010
Mike Hendershot's #80 will be easy to see... The white red and orange will look great on the track and it'll look great in victory lane in 2010 too!
