Speed Street Earns Top Twenty Event Designation

HARRISBURG, N.C. (Feb. 9, 2011) – Food Lion Speed Street has been recognized by the Southeast Tourism Society as a top-20 event for the three-day festival scheduled May 26-28, 2011. Food Lion Speed Street offers live entertainment, access to NASCAR’s brightest stars, and vendor displays from sponsors Food Lion, Coca-Cola, Miller Lite, Chevrolet and many more. “To recognize the heritage and reach of this festival as a Southeast Tourism Society top-20 event is a testament to all involved that make it a success each year,” said Jay Howard, president of JHE Production Group Inc. and event promoter and producer since 1996. “It takes great sponsors like Food Lion, Coca-Cola and others along with the city’s support to execute a festival of this caliber. We are truly grateful for that support.” Criteria for qualifying for the honor are a minimum of 1,000 in attendance and in at least its third year of existence. Food Lion Speed Street annually has 400,000 visitors and is celebrating its 17th birthday this year. This is the second year in a row the festival has earned this top honor. The Southeast Tourism Society Top-20 Events publication receives extensive exposure in more than 1,600 print media, web, television and radio in the United States and Canada. The Top-20 Events are listed on the Southeast Tourism Society website www.southeasttourism.org.
