Indy car legend Rick Mears and NASCAR superstar Jeff Gordon will help kick off the 2016 PRI Trade Show’s Grand Opening Breakfast. Hosted by MAVTV’s Dave Despain, the Breakfast takes place immediately before the PRI Show opens for three days of racing and performance exhibits, seminars, networking events and more.
Mears, who retired from racing in 1992, is one of the winningest racers ever, having won the Indianapolis 500 four times, the IndyCar/CART series three times, and a record six pole positions in the Indy 500.
With 93 NASCAR Cup Series victories to his credit, Gordon remains one of the most celebrated race car drivers of all time. The two iconic racers will join Despain in a casual and intimate stage setting, sharing personal stories and experiences for a captive audience of more than 3,000 industry professionals who will be treated to a hot, catered meal while enjoying the live talk show-style program.
Doors open at 7 a.m., and the program begins at 8 a.m. All PRI attendees are invited to the Breakfast free of charge, but guests are advised to arrive early, as seating is first-come, first-served.
