By John Kilroy on November 17, 2011

SEMA's Motorsports Parts Manufacturers Council has organized two events at the PRI Trade Show, and we wanted to help spread the news. They would like you to RSVP to either, or both events, that you plan to attend

RSVP for MPMC Hall of Fame Ceremony at PRI Trade Show
MPMC will once again hold its Hall of Fame induction at the annual PRI Trade Show on Friday, December 2, from 8 to 9 am, in room S310 of the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fl. Continental breakfast will be served. Use this online form for a quick RSVP to the MPMC Hall of Fame Breakfast.

Chuck Blum, Todd Gartshore, Rick Rollins and Nate Shelton will honored as the MPMC Hall of Fame Class of 2011. The inductees all share the distinction of having been involved in the very formation of MPMC, as well as ongoing support of the council and its programs.

“Last year’s inaugural induction breakfast was standing room only,” said MPMC Chairman Kyle Fickler of Weld Racing. “Thanks to Steve Lewis at PRI and Steve Wolcott at ProMedia for coordinating a larger space this year. Like last year, we’re confident that more of our core audience will be able to attend the induction at PRI, than if we had it at another venue. It’s important that anyone involved in the motorsports parts manufacturing industry have opportunity to participate.”
