The Pinty’s Stage will be a hive of activity at Motorama

There will be constant action and activity throughout the 330,000 square feet of space that make up the sixth annual Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo. But nowhere will be busier than the Pinty’s Stage, located in the southeast corner of Hall 2 at Toronto’s International Centre. The show takes place March 13, 14 & 15.

The Pinty’s Stage will play host to the majority of the show’s awards presentations, celebrity appearances, entertaining and informative discussion panels, media announcements and more.

Throughout the years, at Motorama, the Pinty’s Stage has given showgoers access to many automotive and racing celebrities, including Richard Petty, Bobby Allison, Ron Capps, Billy Gibbons, Steve Darnell, Gene Winfield, Tom Smith, Courtney Hansen and many others.

This year, Chip Foose, Constance Nunes, Grant Schwartz, JF Launier, Ron Gibbs and others will be added to this prestigious list.

The Pinty’s Stage also plays host to the huge Fast Eddie Racewear Short Track and Drag Racing Night of Champions, on the Saturday night of Motorama. This incredible event honours Canadian short track and straight-line racers who won season-long track or series championships the preceding year.

More than 125 champions are expected to take part in this year’s presentations, which the promoters believe is unique and unequalled when it comes to celebrating the achievements of so many racing champions at a single time and place.

The Pinty’s Stage will once again be the place to be for the SEMA & Featured Builders, Celebrity Guest, Drag Racing, Meet the Media and Hot Rod Builders panel discussions. Car show awards presentations will take place there Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. And Chip Foose will be on the Pinty’s Stage to interact with fans on both Saturday and Sunday.

New for 2020, celebrated Canadian automotive artist Ron Gibbs will host a multi-artist Panel Jam on the stage for sessions on both weekend days. He’s also doing a painting of Chip Foose, which will be auctioned off for charity near the end of Sunday’s car show awards.

And in another first for the Pinty’s Stage, Friday night’s Motorama Kick-Off Party will be located on the show’s main stage. During the proceedings, the show’s celebrity guests, sponsors and featured builders will be recognized prior to the surf band Mark Malibu & The Wasagas entertaining the crowd for the evening.

“We’ve attended and been part of Motorama in several different capacities over the years and we’re very excited to sponsor the Pinty’s Stage at this year’s show,” said Tony Spiteri, Vice President – Marketing/Research & Development for Pinty’s Delicious Foods. “So many of our partners and customers are involved in the racing and automotive enthusiast communities that it’s a great opportunity for us to connect with them and be part of a show that celebrates things that we’re all passionate about. It also lets us showcase some of our new initiatives, like the Pinty’s Man Cave line of wings and ribs products.”

Speaking on behalf of the show, Greg MacPherson said, “Pinty’s is an incredible supporter of Canadian racing through its sponsorship of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series and events like the history-making Pinty’s 100 at Ohsweken Speedway, the season-ending Pinty’s Fall Brawl at Jukasa Motor Speedway and other big races. We’re honoured that Pinty’s chooses to promote its products and brands at Motorama and we encourage everyone to engage with their social media efforts and to consider their products when they’re at the grocery store.”
