Racers, race teams, engine builders and motorsports businesses still have time to secure credentials for the 2021 PRI Trade Show. Available online at www.pri2021.com/attend, credentials will provide access to all three days of the event taking place December 9–11, 2021, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.
The 2021 PRI Trade Show will be held December 9–11, at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.
In addition to discovering new products and meeting manufacturers of motorsports products, attendees of this year’s PRI Show have the opportunity to join the newly created PRI Membership Program. Launched earlier this year, the inaugural program is designed to build, promote and protect the motorsports industry for years to come.

“PRI has made significant strides in becoming more politically active to help protect the racing industry,” said Dr. Jamie Meyer, PRI president. “We’re pleased to be able to provide to the industry a mechanism that allows them to unite and join in this effort. PRI Membership is a simple yet highly effective way to make a positive impact and safeguard the future of motorsports.”
