JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – The Kingsport Speedway and Lonesome Pine Raceway Mall Show will be held on Saturday, Feb. 25 at The Mall at Johnson City.
The annual season preview event features nearly 30 race cars and drivers located throughout the mall. Fans get the opportunity to meet drivers and see the race cars up close, while also being able to see what is happening in 2017 at Kingsport Speedway and Lonesome Pine Raceway.
This is the first time that The Mall at Johnson City has hosted this event, or an event of this type, and they are ready to roll race cars into the 80 plus store facility.
“Everyone here at The Mall at Johnson City is excited about this new and unique event,” said Kalonn Roberts, director of marketing for The Mall at Johnson City. “It is sure to be a fun and exciting day for all!”
For the past three years, the mall show has been held at the Kingsport Town Center. This season, with the Kingsport Town Center undergoing renovations and management changes, the event is unable to take place there.
“We can’t thank the Kingsport Town Center enough for hosting us the past three seasons,” said Karen Tunnell, Kingsport Speedway general manager. “Our gratitude also goes out to The Mall at Johnson City for helping this event to continue. We are so excited for them to host our event!
“The staff at The Mall at Johnson City have been great to work with, and our fans and race teams are sure to be treated to a great event.”
The event will kick off on Saturday morning at 10 a.m. and come to an end when the mall closes at 9 p.m.
