Sheheen Named Host of PRI Grand Opening Breakfast

Ralph Sheheen, president and co-founder of SPEED SPORT, will share his passion for and knowledge of motorsports as the new host of the Grand Opening Breakfast at the 2019 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show. The Breakfast takes place Thursday morning, December 12, immediately before the PRI Show opens its doors for the Three Biggest Business Days in Racing, December 12-14 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

“We are thrilled to welcome to the 2019 PRI Show one of the greatest voices in broadcasting and a guy that shares the passion and love of motorsports,” said Bill Miller, PRI general manager. “From Outlaws and trucks to Cup and motorcycles, Sheheen covers anything and everything that competes on the track.”

This year’s Breakfast will be held in the Indiana Convention Center’s Sagamore Ballroom beginning at 8 a.m. Sheheen is taking over the reins as emcee of the event from veteran journalist Dave Despain, who hosted the Breakfast for the past 10 years before retiring this winter.

“It gives us great pleasure to have Ralph Sheheen carry on the wonderful tradition of hosting motorsports’ finest on PRI’s Grand Opening Breakfast stage,” said Miller. “He believes so much in the grassroots racer and track operators. If he’s not on the air, he’s at some track hanging in the garage, chatting it up with the racing community.”

“I’m thrilled to host this year’s Grand Opening Breakfast and to be a part of the PRI tradition,” said Sheheen. “The most legendary names in racing have graced the stage before the start of the PRI Show, and to now be a part of that is amazing!”
