No, you are responding to a single vendor, it is a racing industry event, also with track owners, trailer manufacturers, publications, tool CNC centers, higher learning, insurance, etc. By all means you are welcomed, the vendor does have a point on the swag attendees, but the first time exhibitors with their pride and joy new product lines, are eager to have visitors, much like a restaurant with no cars in the lot, everybody passes them by, so stop in.

I remember back in 1981 the racing trade show was in the underground parking garage of a hotel on Daytona beach. times have changed.
yes i remember that show to it was called the oval track trade show and was held during speedweek at daytona the main reason that show closed is it became overran with race fans

Should I stay home because I don't represent a racing business or professional race team?
According to PRI's website, yes.
This is from their FAQ page
Can anybody attend?
It's trade only, so you must prove you own, manage or represent a racing business or professional race team. Race fans are not admitted.


If your business has nothing to do with automotive/marine/motorcycle performance, you should stay home.

Those are all support businesses for the automotive/marine/motorcycle performance industry.

If there's an insurance company exhibiting there, to push their product to the performance industry, should PRI let in everyone with a car, so they can get a quote on their car insurance ?

We have a new roller lifter option, with no needle bearings, and no bushings.
We also have a new carb spacer design, that acts as a secondary plenum, for carbs with the 650 or 750 base plate.

I remember I had to supply a copy of my sales tax license to get credentials for the PRI show.

I supplied all the business credentials and got approved. I'll just steer very far from Jones Cams.

Is your new lifter made by Morel?

No. It's completely different.
We've had them running in race engines, for the last 2 seasons, with zero issues. I wanted to make sure they were bullet proof, before we started selling them to the public.

FYI, I have no problem with you wanting to go to PRI, to possibly help your business, that's what a good business owner does. I have a problem with PRI allowing in people that aren't from a performance business.

I wish they had a day or two just for industry people--its turned into a circus with autograph seekers and racers begging for sponsor money- hard to do any business wading through groves of tourists...

Mike, tell us the lifters aren't ceramic! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hopefully they and the spacers will be on your site soon after the PRI reveal?

Happy is he who can discover the cause of things.
