The 51st Annual RPM@Daytona will be held at the Shores Resort & Spa in Daytona Beach Shores, Florida on Sunday, February 11; Monday, February 12 and Tuesday, February 13. The 51st version of the popular sessions will has been enhanced to give attendees and exhibitors an enhanced experience during an incredibly busy time of year, further emphasizing that there is no true “off-season” in the sport and “kicking off” another great season in Daytona.

There will be a brief registration on Sunday, February 11, from 3:00 pm until 5:00 pm, at The Shores, followed by a Super Bowl “Watch” party presented by Race Track Wholesale in the Richard Petty ballroom beginning at 6:00 pm. The gathering is intended to be an informal “socializing” opportunity for visitors to the Workshops. The 51st RPM@Daytona Workshops will have a stellar lineup up of speakers and presenters set for promoters who attend the annual workshops to garner ideas and continue developing and growing their businesses while having the opportunity to connect with a variety of colleagues, industry professionals and exhibitors that touch every corner of the short track racing industry.

The speaking lineup will be headlined by several prominent figures in the motorsports business led by Josh Holt, one of the owner’s of MyRacePass. Holt has brought a unique energy to the business and has built a company that has the ability to work with everyone throughout the industry, tracks, sanctioning bodies and competitors. He has a great and educational story to deliver and can provide help for promoters from angles that have previously been left untouched.

Holt is just the tip of the iceberg in regard to the lineup for the RPM@Daytona Workshop schedule. New sessions, including the “The Jody Session”, dedicated to Jody Deery, one of the founders and loyal believers in the Workshops. The session will be dedicated to females in the sport and will be led by the women of the sport. Joining these programs will be the traditional sessions, including the legal update and "Pro Bono" hour will be expounded upon and delivered in breakout sessions as well as many other sessions that assist and impact the short track motorsports industry.

Included throughout the sessions will be the presentations of the regional and national Auto-Racing Promoter of the Year (ARPY) awards as well as the outstanding short track event and the “Jody Deery Award”, which makes the RPM@Daytona Workshops a “can’t miss” event.
