Every season, short track racing welcomes scores of new promoters, courageous ladies and gentlemen accepting the challenge of track operation. Some find track operation and promotion bewildering, different and more complex than expected. When this happens, veteran promoters stand ready to become friends, advisers and mentors. They remember the weekly challenges, and the difficulty of figuring out where to turn for answers. “Where do I get a crash course in track operation,” they wondered? But, they remember discovering the RPM Newsletter and attend their first Workshop. There they found promoters with similar operations willing to share ideas, to network and lend a hand. They found colleagues they could confide in and formed a “kitchen cabinet” of fellow promoters with whom you can compare notes with every week throughout the season.
If you’re with a regional tour, a series, a club track, or drivers’ club, you might wonder whether you are welcome at an event named a “promoters’ workshop.” We welcome you! Much scheduling gets done at the Workshops. Traveling clubs make acquaintances and connections at the Workshops as much as track owners and operators. And they join in the sessions alongside promoters. Some of the most successful driver’s clubs and touring series make the Workshops an annual stop.
