The show features a variety of vendors from across the nation who are showcasing and selling products for racers, drivers and car fans.
The show also features models of various types of race cars.
â€¨Show officials expect to give away thousands of dollars in door prizes, too.
ASI Racewear, a race apparel company based in New York, is one of many vendors that is providing a display at the show.
â€¨ASI's Gene Ullmann said he enjoys having direct relationships with the racers.
â€śWe get to see our customers in this part of the country, which we donâ€™t get to do often,â€ť Ullmann said. â€śWe deal directly with the customers, and when you make the driverâ€™s apparel, thereâ€™s a certain bond there.â€ťâ€¨
