Annual Kingsport Speedway Mall Show this Saturday at The mall at Johnson City

While NASCAR is taking on the high banks of Daytona International Speedway this weekend, Kingsport Speedway will be warming up for the 2020 season with its annual mall show event.  

The 2020 Kingsport Speedway Mall Show will take place this Saturday, Feb. 15 at The Mall at Johnson City from 10 AM until 9 PM. Kingsport Speedway’s annual season preview event features drivers from across the track’s racing divisions on display inside the mall.

“We couldn’t be more excited for this weekend’s show,” said Karen Tunnell, general manager and promoter of Kingsport Speedway. “The mall show is always one of our favorite events of the year. It’s a great way to get everyone together and get them excited for the new season.”

The Mall at Johnson City has hosted Kingsport Speedway and its race teams since 2017. The mall is equally excited to have race cars on display.

“The Mall at Johnson City is excited to host such a unique event,” said Sheila Reed, marketing director for The Mall at Johnson City. “Last year, we had shoppers from neighboring states visit the property for the event and we look forward to watching the event grow even more this year.”

Those in attendance can expect to see nearly 30 race cars on display throughout both levels of the mall. Every division at Kingsport Speedway will be represented, and numerous 2019 track champions and Rookies of the Year will be in attendance.

“It really is such a cool event that you have to see for yourself,” added Tunnell. “To come inside the mall and see race cars everywhere is just so unique.”

Tunnell says the event helps the speedway gain traction going into the new season.

“We have a lot of current fans come to the mall to see the race cars, but we’re also able to attract new fans by interacting with individuals who just came in the mall to shop,” explained Tunnell. “The mall is also able to tap into those individuals who came to see the cars and get them into its stores, so it’s really a win for both.”

Kingsport Speedway’s 2020 season gets underway on March 21 with its annual Saturday afternoon event.
