Will Castro, the colorful owner and founder of Unique Autosports, the automotive customizing business featured on SPEED's "Unique Whips," will greet fans and sign autographs during the Food Lion AutoFair at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
The meet and greet session will take place on Saturday, April 14, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the track's victory lane.
Several of the cars Castro and his Unique Autosports crew have customized, including NASCAR champion Tony Stewart's hearse and Lamborghini; Atlanta Braves outfielder Andruw Jones' 1968 Buick Electra; and a pair of Nissan SUVs owned by fashion designer Marc Ecko, will be on display in the Food Lion Pavilion throughout the four-day automotive extravaganza.
"Radical rides is the theme for the Food Lion AutoFair, so it's only fitting that Will Castro will be on hand because his company has produced some of the most radical rides in the world," said H.A. "Humpy" Wheeler, president and general manger of Lowe's Motor Speedway. "When an automobile rolls into Will's shop, it's just a production car. When it leaves, it's a work of art."
Located in Holbrook, N.Y., Castro's Unique Autosports is known as the "customizer to the stars" and its roster of A-list clientele includes sports stars, entertainers and trendsetters in the fashion industry.
Food Lion AutoFair attracts more than 160,000 visitors and features 50-plus car club displays, more than 10,000 vendor spaces and a collector car auction conducted by Tom Mack. More than 1,500 collectible vehicles of all makes and models will be available for sale in the car corral that rings the 1.5-mile superspeedway.
AutoFair hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Sunday. Tickets are $10 for adults. Children under 12 are admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Parking for the event is $5.
