DDR Motorsports owner, Doug Robbie recently attended the annual Performance Racing Industry trade show (PRI Show)in Indianapolis, IN to check out all the newest components for the racing industry. With the recent purchase of a modified for the 2017 season it was the perfect event to increase the team’s knowledge and establish new contacts for the upcoming season.
Unlike the previous year of abnormal warmth, the temperatures were in the 20’s and it meant the crowd would be dense in the convention hall. This did not hamper any of the enthusiasm for meeting the vendors, rekindling prior relationships and establishing new ones. It was great to catch up with people like Meservey Motorsports, Tom Baker of Team Full Throttle and Annamarie Malfitana-Strawhand.
During the two days of attendance many vendors were visited with a plethora of questions and inquires answered. Topics of what product to use, upgrades available and what type of customer service they offered were all discussed in detail. Also during the show many informational seminars were attended and a wealth of new knowledge was obtained. From data acquisition to springs and shocks to creating a sponsor proposal to law pertaining towing a trailer, the quest to learn was never in absence. We walked away more information for our team and those of our clients.
Now as 2016 winds down and we prepare to ramp up into 2017 its time to take all this information and put it to use. We’ll be working hard in the garage this winter making our car and driver faster along with those we consult with.
