Lakeland, Florida – Racecar Engineering™ has announced that they will be hosting a ‘Vendor College’ for all local, regional, and visiting racers and race teams during the racing action of Speedweeks®* 2019. This exclusive event will take place at Racecar Engineering™, 8126 US Highway 98 North, Lakeland, Florida on Sunday February 10, 2019 from 9AM until 5PM.
Racecar Engineering™ has planned this event during the second weekend in February, after some of the racing dust has almost settled. They have set aside one day during Speedweeks®* to allow drivers, their teams, and their dealers to interact one-on-one with the factory personnel from over 50 prominent product manufacturers they represent.
Steve Dorer of Racecar Engineering™ explained the idea behind their event.
“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. And when you’re at the track, let’s face it, it’s tough to connect with the factory reps with 100% focus between set-up, practice and qualifying,” Dorer said. “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’ & ‘One-On-One’.”
RCE’s ‘Vendor College’ will feature factory technical seminars throughout the day, along with factory personnel displaying their company’s latest & greatest racing parts and handing out their 2019 new product literature.
This exclusive event will also include goodie bags for all who attend featuring factory literature, decals, and maybe a few surprises. Free food and refreshments will be available. There is also a raffle with great prizes courtesy of participating manufacturers, activities for the kids and maybe best off all, great deals on racing parts and equipment.
Just a few of the manufacturers scheduled to be on-site during the 2019 Racecar Engineering™ ‘Vendor College’ are: Allstar Performance, 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, Fragola, HANS, Holley, Hyperco, JE Pistons, Jones Racing Products, KRC Power Steering, Maxima Racing Oil, MSD, Powermaster, Progressive Racing Engines, QuickCar Racing, Racing Electronics, RaceQuip, Roux Helmets, Simpson, Strange Oval, Sunoco, Velocita, Wilwood and XS Power Battery.
