Race Teams and Product Vendors to Swap Notes in February

Racecar Engineering is set to host a Vendor College for all local, regional, and visiting racers and race teams during Speedweeks 2019. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Feb. 10 at Racecar Engineering in Lakeland, Florida.

The purpose of the event is to allow drivers, teams, and dealers to interact one-on-one with factory personnel from more than 50 prominent product manufacturers.

“If you’ve ever been fortunate enough to attend the PRI Show, many racers and teams know that it can be hard to get up-close and personal with their favorite brands and the factory reps they may have spoken to on the phone over the years,” said Steve Dorer of Racecar Engineering. “And when you’re at the track, let’s face it, it’s tough to connect with the factory reps with 100-percent focus between set-up, practice and qualifying.

“So, we’re giving these racers and their teams the opportunity to meet our vendors face-to-face, to discuss technical questions or perhaps solve problems. And who knows, they may just find or learn something new that may help give them that winning edge they’ve been looking for to help them during the 2019 racing season and beyond.

“RCE is fortunate to be at the crossroads during these two exciting weeks of short-track racing, as a majority of the racers will be passing right through our city,” Dorer continued. “This date is one of the only ‘less busy days’ that the teams will have, so we decided to officially open our facility at Racecar Engineering to allow vendors, racers, and our dealers to meet in-person, face-to-face and one-on-one.”

The Vendor College will feature factory technical seminars throughout the day, along with factory personnel displaying the latest and greatest racing parts and handing out this year’s new product literature.

Manufacturers scheduled to be on-site during the Vendor College include: Allstar Performance, AP Brakes, Bassett, Bert Transmission, Bilstein, Brake-O-Meter, Brinn Transmission, Canton Racing, Cometic Gasket, Daytona Sensors, Design Engineering, Driven Racing Oil, DRP Performance, Factory Canopies, FAST Electronics, Finishline Fabrication/FLF Race Cars, Fragola, HANS, Holley, Hyperco, JE Pistons, Jones Racing Products, KRC Power Steering, Maxima Racing Oil, MSD, Performance Friction, Powermaster, Progressive Racing Engines, QuickCar Racing, Racing Electronics, RaceQuip, Roux Helmets, Simpson, Strange Oval, Sunoco, Tilton Engineering, Velocita, Wilwood Engineering and XS Power Battery.
