PRI Show - what to expect??? Dec 6-8th DIESEL Motorsports

What to expect if you are attending the PRI Show (Performance Race Industry) in Indianapolis December 6-8th? Since DIESEL Motorsports has had a booth there for many years even when it was held in Orlando we can tell you what you will see while attending.

First, if you want to attend you need to register as a shop or a competitor for racing or pulling on the day of the event at registration. Second the parking is a bit of a problem so come early and expect to walk 3-4 blocks from your parking spot (parking is about $15-20 a day).

Once you park you do not have to bring a heavy coat because most of downtown Indianapolis is connected with heated skywalks that connect with the Convention Center. That way you won't have to carry around a heavy coat during the show.

Many booth/displays are in the hallways on the way into the show, take time to have a look at them. The display areas are split into certain groups, the main performance hall where most of the big name performance part manufacturers are in this hall. DIESEL Motorsports is in this hall (booth #1837) right down from the Fluidampr booth.

The second connecting hall is part machine hall for shops and the remainder is various WDs, circle track parts and a mixture of different displays. The third hall is full of a mixture of different performance, equipment, and fill-in displays.

Look in the halls for side rooms where first year displays are placed, some really nice companies are hidden in those side rooms. You will need two days to see everything but if you are looking for diesel related displays most can be found in the first two halls.

This is a performance part show so you will not see any truck accessory parts or vehicle displays like the SEMA show. It is a more one on one show where you can actually talk to a company representative about parts that relate to your shop or vehicles.

I like this show for diesels better than the SEMA show because not only is it for competitors but it is located where more shops can attend. We have supported this show for many years and we were the first diesel race and pulling organization to display at the PRI show. In fact we were the only one for many years.

Come by and see the DM Girls at booth #1837 to find out about our 2019 schedule, receive free t-shirts, swag, decals and literature. If you like to touch, feel, and talk about custom parts for diesel performance then you will enjoy this show.
