(Green Bay, WI) – Motorsports author Joe Verdegan’s 2019 “The Bird & The Bear” book tour will make its third stop of the year at the fifth annual NEW MOTORAMA show March 29-31 at Shopko Hall and the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena in Green Bay.
The book, which is Verdegan’s fourth covering Wisconsin stock car racing history, features a pair of Fox Valley racing legends – Roger “The Bear” Regeth and “The Tweedy Bird” J.J. Smith. Both were standouts on the local dirt and paved track scene in the 1970’s racking up multiple track titles and dozens of feature wins. The pair also competed in the USAC stock car circuit in the ‘60’s.
Regeth will join Verdegan in the three-day signing. “What I really love about NEW MOTORAMA is it truly has something for every type of motorsport enthusiast,” Verdegan said. “Our local stock car racing tracks and teams are often well represented but that’s just one part of it. They’ve got a high school motorcycle build off this year which is real cool. There are tons of muscle cars, off road racers and dragsters. It’s a fun three days and it’s got something for everyone from the ages of 8 to 80.”
Sponsors of this “Build Off” so far include NEW MOTORAMA, Blaster Corporation (PB Blaster), Tytler’s Cycle, Hupy & Abraham, Muntz Audio & Video of Green Bay, Rockford Fosgate and ARO Coatings. Muntz Audio and Video will be bringing some vehicles and will also have the Rockford Fosgate Sound Lab on hand.
As an added attraction the KISS tribute band Detroit Rock City will be playing shows both Friday and Saturday night with the band Hot Carl also performing Friday night. TNT-Chicago – The AC/DC show will play Saturday night as well.
According to show organizer Rick Paulick more than 200 vendors, bikes, boats, show cars and other motorized vehicles will be on display during the three-day show.
The show hours will be Friday 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
