Racecar Engineering has announced they will once again be hosting their ‘Vendor College’ event for all local, regional, and visiting racers and race teams during the racing action of Speedweeks®* in 2024. This exclusive event will take place at Racecar Engineering™, 8126 US Highway 98 North, Lakeland, Florida on Sunday February 11, 2024, from 9AM until 3PM.

Racecar Engineering™ hosts their annual event during the second weekend in February, after some of the racing dust has settled and they set aside one day during Speedweeks®* to allow drivers, their teams, and their dealers to interact one-on-one with the factory personnel from nearly 90 prominent product manufacturers they represent.

Steve Dorer of Racecar Engineering™ explains the idea behind their annual event – “If you've ever been fortunate enough to attend the PRI Show or any racing trade event, 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. So we're again 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 2024 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 this time each year, we 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 2024’ will feature a huge tent packed with factory personnel displaying their company’s latest & greatest racing parts and handing out their 2024 new product literature.

This exclusive event will also include goodie bags for the few hundred people who attend featuring factory literature, decals, and maybe a few cool surprises. Food and refreshments will be available for a small charitable donation. There is also a huge charity raffle with great prizes courtesy of participating manufacturers, activities for the kids and maybe best off all, great deals on all racing parts and equipment.

Just a few of the manufacturers scheduled to be on-site during the Racecar Engineering™ ‘Vendor College 2024’ are: AFCO Racing, Allstar Performance, Alcon Brakes, Bassett Wheel, Bert Transmission, Bilstein, Cometic Gasket, Comp Cams, Daytona Sensors, Design Engineering, Driven Racing Oil, DRP Performance, Edelbrock, FAST Electronics, Five Star, Fragola Performance, HANS, Hawk Brakes, Holley, Hyperco, Intercomp, Longacre Racing, Maxima Racing Oil, MPD Racing, MSD, PEM Racing, Powermaster, Pro-System, QA1, QuickCar Racing, RaceQuip, Simpson, Strange Oval, Stilo, Swift Springs, TI22 Racing, Velocita, Wilwood Brakes, XS Power Battery and dozens more.
