NASCAR aficionados will be able to feed their avocation up close and
personal at Glass TEXpo. In the spirit of "everything is bigger
in Texas," a full-scale ARCA racecar will be displayed on the show
floor during Glass TEXpo 2004, which will take place October 1 and 2.
Any race fan is sure to appreciate the opportunity to get a close and
personal look and feel of a genuine racing machine.
The car will be centrally located next to the Texas Glass Association's
(TGA) booth and can be viewed during the show hours, Friday, October
1 from 2 - 7 p.m. and Saturday, October 2 from10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Donny
Kelley, of Porter Glass Mirror, car owner and driver will also be on
hand, with his son, Brandon, to answer questions from all race fans.
Kelley and his son are currently in the process of completing the required
amount of ARCA races to become licensed for the NEXTEL Cup, Busch or
Craftsman Truck Series qualification.
Another part of the qualification is the car itself. The car that will
be on display is their current and only racecar, which is a full-scale
Monte Carlo with a five-star chassis and body. They are presently considering
a new paint scheme in the colors of purple and yellow. With the new
paint scheme comes more opportunities for new sponsors and advertisers.
If you are a true race fan, this is a time you are sure to enjoy.
