November 4th is the deadline for preregistering for the PRI Trade Show, so that you receive your credentials in the mail before departing to Orlando.

I highly recommend it. The lines in Registration can get pretty long at the PRI Trade Show. Preregister, get your credentials and stay out of those lines.

We started a new online registration process this year to save you time and make things easier. It only takes minutes. Just fill in the blanks, submit and you'll receive confirmation within one business day.

See you in...

It was interesting talking to John Godfrey, owner of Spike Chassis, in Brownsburg, Indiana, the other day, when I called him for an article in the November issue on the State of the Racing Market. I just wanted to get John's viewpoint on where racing is right now, especially short track open wheel racing.

John's initial answer was simple, direct, and probably spoke for a lot of people in racing when he frankly acknowledged, "I don't know." It's a tough question to answer these days. As John said, "It's very unpredictable at the moment.

"We've actually been busy the whole summer," said John. However, he said there appears to...
