Performance Racing Industry Trade Show
Full-Speed Ahead For 2013 Return To Indianapolis
This year’s PRI Show, which features exhibits by over 1100
hardcore racing companies occupying 3300 booths, will bring more than 40,000
motorsports professionals from all 50 states and 72 countries to Indy for ‘The
Three Biggest Business Days in Racing.’
Showcasing more than 1100 exhibiting companies while drawing
40,000-plus motorsports professionals from around the globe, the Performance
Racing Industry Trade Show will be better than ever when it returns to the
Racing Capital of the World in 2013.
Known as “The Annual Epicenter of New Racing Technology,” this
year’s PRI Trade Show takes place December 12-14 at the recently renovated
Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. Over 3300 booths displaying the
latest products and services in hardcore racing have been plotted on the
Convention Center’s expansive show floor.
Motorsports entrepreneurs, racing teams and more are invited to
this trade-only event in which all forms of racing are represented, including
stock car, sprint car, dirt late model, open wheel, drag racing, off-road,
karting and more.
In fact, tens of thousands of racing retail stores, warehouse
distribution centers, professional race engine builders, race car production
companies and more will make inventory decisions for 2014 and beyond at PRI.
"This extraordinary array of exhibitors, that hasn't been
experienced in years all in one place all at one time, is the most powerful
magnet for buyer attendance that the PRI Trade Show can have," said PRI Trade
Show Producer John Kilroy. "It's going to be an incredible showcase of the
latest advances in racing technology—a 'must attend' event for racing
And, on the morning of December 12, the great heritage of the
PRI Trade Show’s Grand Opening Breakfast continues with the special appearance
of one of racing's greatest champions, Richard Petty.
Known to many simply as "The King," Petty is the most decorated
driver in the history of NASCAR racing, winning a record 200 career races and
seven NASCAR Cup championships during his illustrious career behind the wheel.
"We're honored to have Richard Petty make his first-ever
appearance at the PRI Trade Show's Grand Opening Breakfast," added Kilroy.
"Everybody in the business of auto racing owes a lot to Richard, and the Petty
family, for all they've done to establish NASCAR racing as one of America's most
Admission to the PRI Show is complimentary, but all attendees
must prove they own, manage or are employed by a racing business.
In addition to a three-day array of exhibits, over 45
conferences, seminars and special networking opportunities have been planned for
Race Industry Week, which begins December 9. Encompassing the days leading up to
and including the annual PRI Trade Show, Race Industry Week 2013 plays host to a
number of co-locating events and activities, including the Advanced Engineering
Technology Conference (AETC), the International Council of Motorsport Sciences (ICMS)
Annual Congress, the Race Track Business Conference, and the Vehicle Dynamics &
Data Acquisition Seminar.
All-new Race Industry Week events for 2013 include the Race
Safety & Technology Center, featuring keynote speakers Dr. Terry Trammell and
Jim Campbell, head of motorsports at General Motors; the national championships
of the Hot Rodders Of Tomorrow engine challenge; and Education Day, organized by
SEMA's Motorsports Parts Manufacturers Council (MPMC), which offers dedicated
product training sessions by 15 top-level manufacturers in the motorsports
What’s more, special sections of the 2013 Trade Show floor have
been designated for PRI’s world-famous Machinery Row; race trailers, tow
vehicles and motorcoaches; simulation and testing technologies; and the popular
International Lounge for PRI’s overseas buyers and exhibitors.
Indeed, the hottest new racing products, the latest advances in
motorsports engineering, and the best of today's precision automotive machining
equipment will be on display at PRI, which comes back to Indianapolis following
a historic eight-year run in Orlando, Florida. PRI had previously taken place in
Indianapolis from 1998-2004.
The PRI Show’s return to the Circle City was set into motion in
late 2012, when the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), which owns
PRI, purchased the International Motorsports Industry Show (IMIS), the racing
trade show that was held annually in Indianapolis since 2009.
The IMIS has since been consolidated with the PRI Show, unifying
the racing industry’s two trade shows into one and creating the opportunity for
exhibitors and buyers to do business in a single location.
“We are excited to bring the PRI Trade Show back to
Indianapolis, where exhibitors and buyers experienced six very successful racing
industry trade shows, from 1998 to 2004,” said John Kilroy, producer of the PRI
Trade Show. “Chris Paulsen, Jeff Stoops, Tony Stewart and the entire IMIS team
have done an excellent job starting up a new racing trade show, and we promise
to build on their mission to keep Indianapolis the annual epicenter of new

Stock car racing returning to
BY LARRY OTT, THE BUFFALO NEWS
It appears that the sound of stock car racing engines will
once again thunder in the small town of Delevan when Freedom Speedway opens
for the 2014 season after being closed to stock car competition the last two
Local car sponsor Troy Shuknecht of Elba is in the
process of completing a lease-to-own one-year agreement with current track
owner Mike Lauterborn to promote stock car racing on Friday evenings next
“It’s pretty much a done deal pending anything that
would come up as the lawyers are going through the final lease review right
now,” Shuknecht said. “I’ve put a down payment down and everything looks good
for me to make an announcement perhaps later this week.”
Tentatively, Shuknecht has tabbed the Crate Late
Models, 360 Late Models, Modified Sportsman, Street Stocks and Mini Stocks as
his weekly classes at Freedom.
Lauterborn purchased the speedway formerly known as
Freedom Raceway and Arcade International Speedway in late 2009, then renamed
it South Arcade Speedway. He ran a complete stock car season in 2010 but
shifted to a partial schedule in 2011. In 2012, after not having much
financial success, Lauterborn ended stock car competition there and staged
local dirt flat track motorcycle competition instead. Last season, he kept the
oval track facility closed and only held motocross racing on the motocross
course but he looks to reopen in 2014 with Shuknecht promoting the stock car
program through the lease agreement.
“I’ve been talking with Mike about running Freedom for
about a year now and when nobody stepped forward and bought the track that’s
when I decided to open the lease talks,” said Shuknecht, who has renamed the
track Freedom Speedway. “It’s a one-year lease that if all goes well I can
extend it or perhaps even buy the track. I’m mainly looking at it as a
business investment I am making for my two sons to get involved with.” His
sons are Tim, 24, and Brandon, 20.
“I am looking at completing the deal with Troy in the
next few days so that he can start to put his plans in place,” Lauterborn
Merger at Holland
Holland Motorsports Complex promoter Tim Bennett has
had a busy offseason to date, restructuring some of Holland’s rules for
2014, including the merging of the open motor type Late Models that ran at
Holland several years ago with the track’s current economy-based NASCAR
Late Models, formerly known as the Late Models of Tomorrow (LAMOT). The
LAMOT cars have run at Holland since 2008.
The LAMOT-type cars have had a weak car count at
Holland since their inception, punctuated by eight or fewer cars in
competition on average last season.
The LAMOT-type cars feature 602 crate type motors,
generically regarded as less expensive to run, while the open motor type
Late Models usually run non-crate engines with higher compression.
With Lake Erie Speedway dropping the open Late
Models after 2012 and Elegant Builders Raceway Park not running them on a
consistent basis the last few years, many open Late Model teams have had
to park their cars in their garages while some drivers have gone onto
This season Bennett and his technical staff have
concocted a set of balanced technical rules that they hope will allow both
types of Late Models to compete against one another in a newly merged
NASCAR Late Model division at Holland with a goal of enhancing a solid car
The most basic rules adjustments will find the cars
sporting a 602 crate engine or a 9.5 to 1 compression engine to weigh with
driver 2,800 pounds and carry a maximum left side weight percentage of 58
percent. For 604 crate, 10.5 to 1 and 11 to 1 engines, the weight must be
2,950 with 56 percent maximum left side weight.
Bennett is hopeful the plan will work. Rules will
be adjusted if Holland officials feel they are warranted based on race
“This is our last effort at trying to make the Late
Models work again at Holland,” Bennett said. “The LAMOT concept was a
great concept when it came out five years ago but in order to make the
Last Models as successful as can be we need to merge everything into one
division and see what happens.”
In Holland’s four-cylinder Hornet division, Bennett
is also allowing the addition of cars utilizing a dual overhead cam engine
to join the single overhead cam engines in the class next season.
The single overhead cam-equipped cars must weigh a
minimum with driver of 2,100 pounds and dual overhead teams’ cars must
weigh a minimum of 2,800. After a driver has two feature wins next season
a minimum additional weight of 50 pounds may be added to that car by
speedway officials and with each subsequent victory that team achieves an
additional 25 pounds will be added.
One other noteworthy change at Holland is that
rules have also been amended to the NASCAR Charger section of the rulebook
to allow the Western New York Street Stocks to compete in the class next

Lucas Oil Empire Super
Sprints Banquet Hands out over $58,000;
Steve Poirier Crowned Four-Time Champion.
VERNON, NY - Capping off a very successful 30th
Anniversary Tour for the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) was the annual
awards banquet held at the luxurious Vernon Downs Resort and Casino in front of
a capacity crowd. During the evening more than $58,000 in cash and prizes were
handed out to 23 different competitors with Quebec's Steve Poirier receiving the
largest chunk by claiming his fourth ESS title in grand fashion.
During the night the driver from St, Mathieu del Beloeil laid claim not not for
the overall Lucas Oil ESS Championship but he also won the Le Groupe Ultra Tour
of Canada, Today's Options Stars and Stripes Tour, the SUNY Canton Series, the
Cobra Coaches Dash Series and the Gater New Lap Leader Series almost making for
a clean sweep on the season. He took home $7,385 during the night and received
many well earned accolades from the banquet crowd. The fourth title now puts him
behind Mike Woodring (8) and Mal Lane (6) in ESS champinships.
While Poirier was called up to the stage more than any other driver, there were
several more that also took home cash and hardware. Michael Parent was crowned
the SUNY Canton CNY Speedweek champion and up until his unfortunate accident he
was in the hunt for the overall title. The Granby, Quebec driver spoke to the
crowd about making his return and told everyone about getting new equipment
Dylan Swiernik won the Fondations 4 Saisons Hard Charger points with the point
fund ironically sponsored by Poirier. The Port Leyden, NY driver won two events
during the season in which were his first two of his ESS career.
The Pilat Design Most Improved Driver was again taken by a young driver from the
province of Quebec as Etienne Girard was voted on the receive the $500 in cash
and other awards for a very respectable 2013 season. Girard went from struggling
to qualify in his rookie season to being a steady threat to make a podium finish
in many A-Mains.
Paul Kinney for the second year in a row won he Finish Line Wed Design best
appearing car award. He received a $1000 package from Craig Revelle.
The annual Mach 1 Chassis Hard Luck Award went to a person that was definitely
deserving in Mike Stelter. It was a very tough year for the veteran not only on
but off the track. The likable driver took home a complete Mach 1 frame in which
will definitely be used for 2014.
The Lucas Oil Mechanic of the Year award is voted on by the race teams and the
very popular announcing of long-time ESS faithful Doug Emery as the winner got a
very big round of applause from the crowd. Doug has helped out several in the
organization including Shawn Donath, Jessica Zemken and most recently this year
Annually some very special awards are given out to the some special people. The
John Zentner Memorial Award held annually in memory of the only driver who lost
his life in ESS competition went to the entire Parent Family. Not only are they
dedicated sponsors of the club but when the tour travels up to their native
Quebec they open up their home to any race team to stay over or work on their
The Mal Lane Award of Excellence went to a surprised but very deserving Jason
Barney. The Brewerton, NY star traveled the full tour in 2013 and in not only
showing true dedication, his equipment was always seen spotless at every race he
entered. Jason always lends a helping hand to other teams which describes what
the award is for.
The ESS Hall of Fame was started last year and the class of 2013 boasted two
honored inductees. A person that has been a part of the ESS family for nearly
all of the 30 years as a car owner, sponsor and member of the Board of
Directors, Walt Throne was inducted in front of the big banquet crowd. Walt's
speech was heart felt and he had the attention of many.
The second person inducted was 16 time winner and constant threat to win an ESS

the track will make the transition to 360-cubic inch sprint car racing
beginning in 2014.
The 360 sprint cars will join the 358 sprint cars,

of the weekly racing programs next year. The track's super late models, pro

5 Alcohol-Burning Engine Maintenance Tips
With all the talk about ethanol and E85
lately, we thought it would be a good idea to revisit five important tips if
you're considering making the switch away from gas
From the December, 2010 issue of Circle
With all the talk about ethanol,
methanol, and E85 in the pages of Circle Track recently, we thought it would
be a good idea to revisit five important maintenance-oriented tips where
these fuels are concerned.
racers have chosen methanol for a variety of reasons, including the fact
that properly tuned alcohol engines make more power and methanol burns
cooler. Most of the time, racing methanol is 99 percent pure methanol, as
opposed to its close cousin ethanol, which is 85 percent ethanol and 15
percent gasoline, and known commonly as E85.
added increase in horsepower is good, the downside of running an alcohol
fuel is a bigger workload to ensure that it doesn't corrode and harm your
engine. There are many aspects that need to be looked at when running
alcohol but we have narrowed down the five most important.
1. Buy Weekly
Alcohol fuels are hygroscopic, which means over time they will start to
absorb water, and this is never a good thing. Old methanol, for example,
that has been sitting around the shop almost certainly will eventually
experience this problem. While good storage practices go a long way in
preserving any fuel, the easiest way to avoid a problem is to purchase only
the amount you will use to go racing on a particular evening the day before
the race. Granted you will be buying fuel every week, but at least you know
it will always be fresh.
Drain it After Every Race
Methanol or any alcohol is extremely corrosive, and leaving it in the fuel
system can degrade the parts, like the fittings and seals in the carburetor.
In order to avoid this potentially costly situation you must flush the fuel
system as soon as possible after the race.
Drain the remaining alcohol, fill the
fuel cell with gasoline, and run the engine. Once it starts to sputter and
eventually dies you will know that the system has been flushed. Any traces
of methanol can corrode the entire fuel system, which leads us to our next
Complete Off-Season Teardown
Most teams using gasoline may or may not perform a complete fuel-system
teardown, but with alcohol it is mandatory. As we said, these fuels are
extremely corrosive and will corrode everything including the foam in the
fuel bladder. Let it sit all winter and you'll have nothing but an empty
container come spring.
the entire fuel system and inspect the fuel bladder, lines, carburetor, and
pump. If there is any evidence of corrosion or wear, you need to replace
that particular piece.
Note-be extremely careful when handling methanol. It's easily absorbed through
the skin, and prolonged exposure can lead to health issues. In the event that
methanol does come in contact with your skin, wash the area thoroughly with
soap and water.
Don't Ignore the Carb
Alcohol is great at producing power, but it will eat away at your
carburetor. The carburetor needs to be gone through every four to five
months (depending on your racing schedule), which is the perfect time to
have a basic rebuild performed. This is especially true if you forget to run
gasoline through your engine after a race.
particular, evaporates quickly and will leave a residue inside the
carburetor that is similar to sand. Think about that the next time you fire
your engine-you could be sucking all that sand-like residue into the motor.
5. Always Inspect the Bypass
Sprint Car guys should all know this, but you should check the high-speed
bypass valve on a regular basis. Most teams will work with this bypass valve
to ensure that the engine is getting as much fuel as possible. They often
change the "pill" and bypass valve to send more or less fuel to the engine.
have the bypass valve out of the car, look for the residue mentioned in tip
No. 4. If you discover it, flush the entire fuel system before firing the
tips and you're on your way to trouble-free alcohol racing.
