Motorsports legend Chip Ganassi, owner and CEO of Chip Ganassi Racing, will help kick off the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show by headlining the Grand Opening Breakfast on Thursday, December 7, 2017, in Indianapolis.

Hosted by MAVTV’s Dave Despain, the Breakfast takes place immediately before the exclusive 30th anniversary PRI Show opens for three days, December 7-9. Despain will interview Ganassi 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 breakfast while enjoying the talk show-style program.

“Chip Ganassi is truly one of the most dynamic and forward-thinking team owners in racing today,” said PRI General Manager Bill Miller, “We couldn’t be more pleased to open PRI’s big 30th anniversary trade show with what promises to be a lively and highly entertaining program led by the one and only Dave Despain.”

Chip Ganassi Racing in 2017 fielded two cars in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, two in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, four cars in the Verizon IndyCar Series, two in the WeatherTech United Sports Championship, and two in the World Endurance Championship. Overall, his teams have won 17 championships and over 160 races, including four Indianapolis 500s, a Daytona 500, a Brickyard 400, a 24 Hours of Le Mans, seven Rolex 24 At Daytonas and the 12 Hours of Sebring.

“I’m excited to be a part of the 30th anniversary of the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show,” said Ganassi. “Having the opportunity to be interviewed by Dave Despain and share some stories with industry professionals to kick off the trade show will be fun. I’m really looking forward to it.”

The Grand Opening Breakfast is open exclusively to PRI attendees and not to the general public. The Breakfast takes place in the Indiana Convention Center’s Sagamore Ballroom. Doors open at 7 a.m., and the program begins at 8 a.m. PRI attendees may attend the Breakfast free of charge, but guests are advised to arrive early, as seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

This year’s PRI Trade Show will feature over 1,100 companies exhibiting in more than 3,400 booths, showcasing the latest developments in auto racing technology. Tens of thousands of buyers from all 50 states and 70 countries will be on hand to conduct business.

In addition, the days leading up to and including the PRI Show, which have come to be known as Race Industry Week, will offer a range of motorsports-related activities in and around the Indiana Convention Center beginning on Monday, December 4. Numerous conferences, seminars and other special events will offer unlimited business opportunities and provide invaluable insight on the latest technologies and how to apply them throughout the racing world.
