Canadian Motor Speedway has been proud to present a Hendrick Motorsports #24 car for seven years at Motorama (and the CME) and was most proud to have Jeff Gordon’s 93rd and final NASCAR Cup winning car in last year’s display. Since Jeff’s Martinsville win car straight from victory lane would be near impossible to top, we went in another direction for Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo 2017.
Our friends at AECON brought in one of their new Bulldozers for us to decal and display…to set the tone for 2017. IBI Group and EllisDon were also featured in our display this year with a new construction visualization video and a 3D model of CMS complete with lights and 3D printed cars.
Niagara College’s Motive Power department was an exhibitor with CMS at Motorama, showcasing their research & innovation, automotive programs and discussing their new Green Automotive program.
Continuing a very popular tradition, attendees were able to speak with Mr. John Bickford. Bickford is the stepfather and the man behind the illustrious career of Jeff Gordon, the designer of Canadian Motor Speedway. John answered questions about Jeff’s career, on and off the track, his involvement in CMS and even autographed a few of Jeff’s books upon request. As an official Canadian retailer of Jeff Gordon’s first ever authorized autobiography, JEFF GORDON: His Dream, Drive & Destiny, CMS has Jeff’s book in Fort Erie office.
Thank you to the show organizers for another successful show – we are already planning for 2018! Thank you also to the attendees who came by to visit our booth. The bulldozer in our display helped us to show that this will be a year for construction to finally begin. We thank our friends and fans for their extensive and amazing patience as we finish off the remaining requirements to get heavy equipment back on the site in Fort Erie.
