Canadian Motorsports Expo in town this weekend

Race cars and drivers are coming to the #Toronto for the annual @CME_Racing show February 7-9, 2014 in Hall 5 of the International Centre near the airport. The event is produced by Inside Track Motorsport News and they bring NASCAR's superstar Richard Petty to the expo on Sunday.
On "February 9th when NASCAR’s all-time winningest driver, Richard Petty, takes to the CME Stage courtesy of Pinty’s Delicious Foods. Known simply as ‘The King,’ Petty is one of two, seven-time champions of NASCAR’s top-tier Sprint Cup Series (the other is the late Dale Earnhardt Sr.). Petty’s 200 career victories and his seven wins in the sport’s biggest race – the Daytona 500 – are records that will likely never be surpassed."
