DeeryGarrisonGreci4Gray Garrison and the Hawkins Family, promoters of Bowman Gray (NC) Stadium, were revealed as the 40th Auto Racing Promoters of the Year in ceremonies at the Hilton Daytona Beach.  Readers of Racing Promotion Monthly, the idea newsletter for auto racing promoters, chose Garrison and the Hawkins family from among six regional nominees.  Honored as Regional Auto Racing Promoters of the Year were the Leiby brothers and Alan Kreitzer, Lincoln (PA) Speedway; Rich Farmer, Fremont (OH) Speedway; Dan and Scott Ratajczak, and Toby Kruse, 141 (WI) Speedway; Dan Robinson, Lucas Oil (MO) Speedway; Region Six, Steve Beitler, Skagit, Gray’s Harbor (WA) Speedways.  The 23rd Annual ShowMe 100 received the Racing Promotion Monthly Award for Outstanding Annual Short Track Event.  Journalist Jerry O’Brien, columnist for the WISSOTA Promoters Association’s publication All The Dirt Racing News; promoters Steve and Erika Puvalowski, Tri-City (MI) Speedway, and IMCA’s Kathy Root received RPM Promoters Workshops Achievement Awards for dedication to racing promotion.

Monday evening, FuelTix, the new standard in Internet and POS ticketing for short tracks, sponsored the FuelTix Exhibitor Appreciation Hour after which Dean Kurtz, Chief Guest Services Officer, Daytona International Speedway, hosted promoters in an exclusive tour of the newly renovated speedway.

Featured speaker Ralph Sheheen of Speed Sport Magazine, talked with promoters about the changing motorsports entertainment landscape in remarks Tuesday morning. Other presenters included journalist Joyce Standridge, 39th ARPY Gary Howe, Alabama promoter Billy Thomas, social media expert Kristin Swartzlander, and marketing consultant Mike Lysakowski. Standridge, advocated greater concern for the average weekly competitor, and asked promoters why their drivers must spend up to compete with traveling stars.  Thomas offered a case history demonstrating how to build big events and increase revenue.  Swartzlander explained the effect of Facebook algorithmic changes and offered alternative strategies to help promoters strengthen their social media presence, and Lysakowski mesmerized promoters with dramatic examples of why race track advertising should target a broader audience than established race fans.  In the Workshops Annual Case Law Summary, attorneys Cary Agajanian and Paul Tetreault updated promoters on court decisions affecting motorsports.

The 44th Workshops Series will kick off in November of 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada, continue in Indianapolis, December 7, 2016, and conclude at Daytona Beach, February 13, 2017.
