CSM Checks Out PRI
Description

We recently left our warm Florida office and headed to the December cold of Indianapolis, Indiana for the 26th edition of the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) trade show.  

Tens of thousands of motorsports professionals from across the United States and 72 countries joined us as we discovered the latest in racing technology on display from 1200 manufacturers of racing and high-performance automotive components, as well as precision machining equipment.

The three day, trade only, event began with a capacity crowd at the Grand Opening Breakfast, which hosted Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard, and Mark Miles, CEO of Hulman & Co. —the parent organization of IndyCar and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. On-air motorsports journalist and personality Dave Despain then took center stage with a lively talk show-style interview session with racing icon Richard Petty, “The King,” and veteran NASCAR racer Kenny Schrader

This year’s show also played host to a number of the sport’s biggest stars – NHRA Nitro champions John Force, Antron Brown, Shawn Langdon, Larry Dixon and Tony Pedregon, IndyCar champion Scott Dixon, reigning Indianapolis 500 champion Tony Kanaan, World of Outlaws star Steve Kinser, and NASCAR’s Matt Crafton and Kyle Larson were among those taking part in the event.

While the show highlights the latest in performance and racing parts, equipment, machinery, etc.  the hot rodder in us came through as we viewed the latest in speed equipment, much of which crosses over into our hot rod world.
