What Exactly is a 'Vendor College'?
Racecar Engineering™ will be taking a break from the racing action the second weekend in February to set aside one-day during Speedweeks®* to allow drivers, their teams, and our dealers to interact with the Factory Personnel from nearly 80 Product Manufacturers we proudly represent.
We’re ‘Officially Opening Our Doors’ at Racecar Engineering™ Allowing Vendors, Racers and Dealers To 'Meet-In-Person', Face-To-Face & One-On-One!
Meet Face-To-Face with Factory Reps - If you've been to the PRI Show, you know that it can be hard to 'Get Up-Close and Personal' with your favorite brands and their reps who you may have spoken with on the phone. Not going to the 2023 PRI Show? Well, here's your chance to make up for it!
We're giving you this opportunity to meet 'Face-to-Face'. to ask technical questions or solve problems. Who knows, you may just find or learn something 'New' that may help give you that 'Winning Edge' you've been looking for!
Extra Huge $$$ Savings - All day during our Vendor College event, we'll help kick-off the racing season by offering all racers, race teams and our Racecar Engineering™ dealers the absolute lowest prices on parts of the whole year. Everything is on sale for ONE-DAY ONLY and we mean EVERYTHING! So get your 'Wish List' ready. In fact... Why not put a list together and call or email our Sales staff? They'll be happy to put a quote together for you. So get to writing NOW people! If you don't have our recent catalog, don't forget you can browse our digital catalogs by clicking here and even see 'live' inventory in our Florida location and Michigan fulfillment center. So if you need something from up North, we can easily have it here waiting for you, with NO SHIPPING CHARGES, if you place your order by February 3, 2024. We'll even prepare & pack your entire parts order and have it waiting for you to pick-up when you arrive at our facility. How's that for convenience? And just an FYI, we'll also have a ton of our 2023-2024 Circle Track Parts and Equipment catalogs and also our brand new 2024-2025 Drag Racing parts catalog on-hand for the event.

Our goal is to once again raise several thousands of dollars for these charities, and we're sure we'll get there, thanks to everyone's help.
Our racing community (racers, dealers, and vendors) plays a key role in this success of this event. Our goal is to make our ‘Manufacturer's Tent’ look like a mini-trade show. We anticipate it will once again be well-received by attendees and we're really looking forward to seeing everyone again at our event here at Racecar Engineering™ in 2024!
