PRI Expands its Education Program for 2019

More than two dozen free seminars will provide attendees with invaluable insights and strategies for success in today’s competitive marketplace.

Attendees at the 2019 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show will have more opportunities than ever to learn valuable strategies, insights and solutions on a variety of subjects when the industry comes to Indianapolis in December.

Over two dozen seminars broken out by tracks including Sales & Marketing, Business Operations, International, Opportunities in Racing, Sanctions & Tracks, and more will provide vital information for motorsports professionals of all stripes—engine builders, speed shop owners, fabricators, machinists, tuners, race team members, sanctioning body and track officials, and media.

“In a continued effort to deliver more value for Show goers, PRI Education has more than tripled for 2019 with seminars taking place before and during Show hours,” said SEMA-PRI Senior Director of Education Zane Clark. “Our focus is on delivering best-in-class opportunities to learn up-close from industry leaders and experts on a number of hot-button topics across multiple education tracks. We want racing businesses to improve their performance on and off the track.”

New for 2019, a PRI Education sign-up page has been integrated into the PRI Trade Show’s attendee registration process. This page provides a comprehensive list of all PRI Education sessions currently offered during the Show, December 12-14, at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indy.

“The lineup of expert presenters and industry leaders set for this year’s program is unlike anything that’s ever been offered at PRI,” said PRI Editor Dan Schechner. “Sign-up is quick and convenient, and we encourage attendees to take advantage of these exclusive—and free—opportunities to elevate your operations ahead of the 2020 racing season.”

In addition to complimentary sessions offered through PRI Education, a number of conferences and seminars, among them the Race Track Business Conference and International Council of Motorsport Sciences’ Annual Congress, will provide invaluable insight and business opportunities in and around the Convention Center during Race Industry Week, which begins Monday, December 9.

This year’s PRI Trade Show will feature over 1,100 companies exhibiting in more than 3,300 booths and showcasing the latest products, services, machinery, simulation and testing technologies, and trailers for the racing industry in a single location. Now in its 32nd year, PRI encompasses all forms of racing and attracts attendees from all 50 states and all over the world, including professional race teams, retail shops, warehouse distributors, engine builders, fabricators, dealers, installers, jobbers and media.

Motorsports pros Rick Jones, Kevin Lawrence, Dave River, and Jeff Wick have announced the rebirth of the Midwest Pro Stock Association (MPSA), a drag racing series formed by Jim Wick in the late 1980s. The series folded following the passing of Wick in 2002. 

“A group of us were together at the World Series of Drag Racing at Cordova—which itself is an end-of-the-season match race—and we thought it would be a good deal to bring back match racing year-round like they used to. So I called [Jim’s son] Jeff Wick to see if we could use the MPSA name. He was on board and even wanted to help and compete, too,” Lawrence said to PRI. “Jeff will compete in the Matchmaker car they haven’t run since Jim’s passing.”
