For RacingJunk.com, the PRI show is always a great chance for us to connect with readers, customers, advertisers, sponsors, and the rest of the racing industry who descend upon Indianapolis in December to look ahead at the latest in racing technology, manufacturing, machining and support. It’s also a great time to give away a boatload of t-shirts, and six $100 prizes. We truly love our community and PRI is one of the ways that we get to show it in person. Over the three days of the show, we will talk to so many multiple teams, manufacturers, distributors, tracks, sanctioning bodies, builders, painters, engineers and enthusiasts that it’s hard to know where to start when we look at sharing the best of the show with readers.
Two rows away from us, Roush Yates is displaying its new RY45 series of engine blocks and components, along with info on the soon to be launched Roush Yates School of Technology (read more about that here: http://www.racingjunk.com/news/2014/12/11/roush-yates-school-of-technology-to-open/). Victory Motorsports has its land speed racer in the lobby with its unique TVI engine. The Hall of Champions manages to fit The Sarge, Tony Schumacher’s, NHRA-winning drag car to in a row with other superstars. Oil companies share the vehicles rocking their lubricants, glass companies got shine, and if you ever wondered what a very tiny go kart looks like, this is the place to see it in person. Celebrities like Tony Schumacher signed autographs at Chevrolet Performance, and World of Outlaws winner Donny Schatz greeted fans at Mobil 1.
Over the next few days, we will continue to cover PRI, but for today, enjoy a few photos of the race cars and builds that have caught our eye on our first few forays across the show floor:
