Education Day Offers Exclusive Access To Top Manufacturers
By Dan Schechner on November 21, 2013

Coinciding with the PRI Show's big return to Indy this year, several brand-new events have been planned for Race Industry Week 2013. Among them is Education Day, which takes place Wednesday, December 11—the day before the PRI Trade Show floor opens—at the Indiana Convention Center.

Patterned after the already successful Hot Rod Industry Alliance (HRIA) Education Day, 15 Motorsports Parts Manufacturers Council (MPMC) member companies will present one-hour product training presentations to PRI Trade Show attendees.

Three seminars will each run concurrently over five, one-hour time slots beginning at 9:00 am.



“The HRIA Education Day is wildly successful,” said MPMC Chairman Vic Wood of Aeromotive. “The PRI Show seemed a perfect venue to try the same template for MPMC companies. We originally were planning to implement it in 2014, but after presenting the idea to John Kilroy and his PRI team, the decision was made to go for it this year. We’ll start with just the 15 companies this year, and see how it goes. But I see no reason why this shouldn’t expand to 30 or 40 companies one day, as soon as attendees realize the opportunity it presents.”

The following MPMC companies were selected via a first-come, first-served online registration April 30:

    •    COMP Cams
    •    Flaming River
    •    Flowmaster
    •    Hedman Hedders
    •    Jiffy-Tite
    •    Joe Gibbs Driven
    •    Lunati
    •    MAHLE
    •    MSD Performance
    •    Painless Performance Products
    •    Phoenix Race Tire
    •    Quarter Master
    •    Ron Francis Wiring
    •    Trend Performance/Diamond Racing
    •    Turbosmart USA

Interested attendees are invited to view session topics and register today.
