PRI may be over, but it is not forgotten by a long shot. This racing industry show gave many thousands the chance to see and talk to many critical vendors that support the sport. In addition there were many celebrities there to talk to the attendees and share their perspectives on this world-wide industry.
The first morning’s breakfast had Dave Despain’s commentary on the industry as well as a lively interview with Brad Keselowski.
Over the rest of the days there were seminars on Land Speed Racing with Louise Ann Noeth of Land Speed Productions, Derek Daly speaking on how to position your self for success, and EricTheCarGuy talking on how he has become a YouTube phenomenon and what that can mean for racing entrepreneurs.
There were many others as I walked about the show floor:
John Force, multi-championship funny car driver.
Indy’s own Borg Warner trophy.
Lynn St. James later put in an appearance at the Sportscar Vintage Racing Booth.
World-wide TV coverage.
REVTV had coverage as well.
Plenty of stars were there on the people side of things, but perhaps the most exciting celebrities for the folks that attended PRI 2015 were the cars:
How about a Mustang body? That weighs only 115 pounds!
And who doesn’t smile to see a vintage air-cooled VW racer…
There were drag cars, too.
I just love the supercharger butterflies on this…
To rally cars…
Some wilder cars, or trucks…
Some land speed record cars:
