Josh Holt of Webster, South Dakota gave the "keynote" presentation at the RPM@Reno Western Workshops.

He will return to the podium and lead the sessions when things begin at The Shores for RPM@Daytona "Where is all Begins".

RPM@DAYTONA 51ST ANNUAL WORKSHOPS SCHEDULE PREVIEW

Assembling the schedule for the RPM Workshops is always challenging. It's a delicate balance to build something that helps promoter's. The schedule between Reno and Daytona, due to the time of year is different. What works for one promoter, may not work for another and we try to be mindful of that, but only have so much time in two-days to give our visitors and exhibitors a program that is robust and rich in content.

For the 51st annual RPM@Daytona Workshops we continue to work toward that goal, weighted heavily in aspects that will drive sales for you, helping to increase your bottom line. That is the ultimate goal, the one thing, the one idea in which you can draw from the Workshop that helps make your program, track, event better and hopefully a benefit that helps make the bottom line shine.

We have also added two all-new sessions in different locations without running against the timer. Those sessions are intended to help educate in areas where you have provide more specifics. We've listened.

AJ Moore from Lake Erie will be walking folks through "The 101" of promoting, looking at all of the basics, while Carson Gramm from IMCA, will walk you through the A-Z of sponsorship sales, from what you can sell, right through to how to build and present a sales deck, down to execution.

These are topics that are being guided by people with strong backgrounds, years of experience and development in their respective categories.

Please remember this is the first draft of the final schedule and some situations may change based on a variety of changes that can happen. Stay tuned for any of those changes.

Is Everyone On Board?

As a team professional, you know the importance of employee engagement and how team culture influences, leaders, your fellow co-workers, the business and your customers.

However, does everyone in your business and organization, as well as your leaders know the importance too?

Whether you have a good culture or you want to make it better, your team culture needs a fresh start for 2024.

Make sure you know that "People Matter". When they feel right, they will want to help you achieve your goals, keep working to get your full team on board to achieve the results you want. Remember it is okay to make changes when necessary. Albeit, difficult, those changes may be necessary.

We don't know what 2024 will bring, but we all know the importance of people now more than ever! From connecting your remote or hybrid employees, to retaining your top talent, make sure your company and culture are the best it has ever been in 2024 – and that starts with engagement, the employee experience and team culture!

Leadership Secrets Continued

We continue to learn Leadership Secrets and how we can use some philosophy and strategies to make our own business, organization or team better.

LESSON FOUR - Listen To Your People

  • Involve your employees in the operation.
  • Seek and listen to ideas and opinions of your team for constructive feedback in making things better.
  • Empower your staff to make decisions particularly when it involves fulfilling your goal of creating a magical customer experience.
  • Pay attention on how you are perceived as their leader by accepting feedback and taking action.
  • Seek, obtain and listen to customer feedback to show that you care.
  • Walk awhile in your customer's as well as employee's shoes.

LESSON FIVE: Get Beyond The Red Wagon (Dealing With Change)

Some of you may remember asking for or having a "red wagon" as a child. In fact many of us still have one in the garage. It use to be one of the most popular toys. Years ago and while growing up, every child dreamed of getting a red wagon.

However, as time passed, the red wagon became less and less popular. Everyone realized the necessity of adapting to the new demand of popular toys, video games, etc. Just like your customers, their wants and needs are constantly changing. Change is inevitable and you have very little choice but to accept it. Your only choice is how you respond to it.

  • Help everyone accept the reality of change and the reason why it is important for the success of your business or organization.
  • Provide surveys, customer round table discussions, ask for feedback, observe other businesses to learn about what your customers really want.
  • Teach "The Business" - The more your employees understand about how your business works, the more likely they are to accept and support change.
  • Cross train your staff or have them job shadow other areas and positions to get a better understanding of everyone's job and how it affects the business or organization.

LESSON SIX- Share The Rewards

We would all agree that the owner is the one who is in the spotlight and usually gets a lot of the credit for making everything happen or even when things go bad, getting the credit for that. Even though everyone works very hard to make sure the mission is accomplished. Who gets credit? Who enjoys the rewards when things go well? How do you keep everyone motivated and appreciated?

  • Make sure everyone sees the positive differences that they make not only to your customers but to each team member.
  • Be more visible to your team and spend time with them watching how hard they work, catch them when they do things right, thank them and tell them often that you appreciate them.
  • Post emails, reviews or letters of customer's positive feedback in the office or breakrooms.
  • Celebrate successes at staff meetings and share your appreciation.
  • Expand recognition to all employees not just the ones who are in contact with your customers. Appreciate those that are behind the scenes.
  • Make it everyone's responsibility to recognize and appreciate others.

As you can see, from the last two Leadership Secrets, many are simple and easy to implement in any business or organization. Try them and I am sure you will create a great environment and productive atmosphere.

Virtual Flagman introduced at Lincoln Speedway

Lincoln Speedway is excited to introduce the virtual flagman to Central PA racing.

Starting with the Ice Breaker Weekend, February 24-25, Lincoln Speedway will implement a state of the art virtual flagman system that will include lighting and message boards around the speedway to alert drivers and fans of important situations on the track. This technology has been implemented at tracks around the world and Lincoln Speedway will be the first track to utilize this proven system in Central PA.

In addition to the virtual system, there will be flaggers and safety personnel on the inside of the track in the corners and on the front straightaway. The virtual system will be run from the scoring tower.

“When you take a step back and look at it, we are removing two individuals from a hazardous environment that were an extension of the scoring tower. We are modernizing a system that was already in place,” is how General Manager, Jerry Parrish is looking at the change. “Lincoln was the first track in Central PA to utilize a jumbotron and now other tracks have them and the World of Outlaws bring one on their tour. We are always looking at opportunities to bring innovation to a sport that has been slow to take on change.”

For the first few weeks of the season there will be a flagger in the main flag stand to help adjust to the change and to work through any unexpected situations.

“The safety of the drivers and officials is our number one priority and putting this system in place continues our efforts towards that goal,” shared Parrish.

Lincoln Speedway announced that they will introduce a virtual flagman in 2024. The technology of the sport has advanced a great deal and with the panel lighting provided by multiple manufacturers including MyRacePass, RACEceiver and Flagtronics, who will all be displaying at the 51st Annual RPM@Daytona Workshops at the Shores Resort & Spa is incredible and can help you advance your speedway or series and the sport.

Live Stream Help

MCA drivers didn't have to wait until Christmas morning to open envelopes containing IMCA.TV bonus checks.

A total of 705 drivers in the nine divisions sanctioned by IMCA earned shares $97,645 generated by replays of weekly and special events at 57 tracks broadcast by IMCA.TV or its affiliates.

Modified, Late Model, RaceSaver Sprint Car and Stock Car drivers finishing in the top three in point standings at those tracks receive checks for $240, $160 and $135; Northern SportMod and Southern SportMod checks are distributed in the amounts of $140, $115 and $100, and Hobby Stock, STARS Mod Lite and Sport Compact checks are in the amounts of $115, $85 and $70.

Those checks are being mailed this week from the IMCA home office.

“This bonus program is the first of its kind and was developed by our streaming platform provider Riivet in 2021,” explained IMCA President Brett Root. “A percentage of subscription fees paid by replay viewers is paid to tracks and to top three drivers in sanctioned divisions.”

“Almost $28,000 was paid to nearly 400 drivers in 2021 and more than $65,000 to 501 drivers last year,” he continued. “As replay viewership increase, so will the amount of revenue and the number of drivers receiving bonuses.”

RPM frequently references to the benefits of streaming and here is a true benefit to streaming. Benefits like this keep racers racing, driving fans to watch your events. While your independent contribution may not be as much as what IMCA has published, remember, every drop in the bucket helps.

Mark Your Calendars - RPM Workshop Dates for 2024 and 2025

They have stated that if the track is not sold during this off-season, then they’ll continue to manage it through 2024 and beyond. The right buyer is required to lift the property.

Chris Kearns explains that health in the family is the reason the track is listed for sale;

“It is with heavy heart and unforeseen circumstances in my family’s health that I must announce the decision to put Macon Speedway up for sale,” Chris Kearns opened.

“Owning Macon Speedway has been a long time dream of mine, and turning it into an exceptional facility that would make not only my family but the also the entire Macon community proud. The plan was for my wife and I to do this venture together as a promoting team.”

“Unfortunately, her medical issues are not going to allow that to happen and, I honestly can’t and don’t want to pursue this journey without her. In the brief time we’ve been here, I am very proud of the improvements that have been made.”

“I want to emphasize that if Macon Speedway does not sell in the off season to the right person, my son Blade and I have every intention and are committed to running the Speedway in 2024 & beyond, and further enhancing its facilities.”

“Despite being in the middle of the new bathroom project, I have already been making plans for our off season improvements, which include enhancements to the concession stand and fencing. If the speedway sold tomorrow, I still have every intention to host the 2023 banquet and honor the racers who have supported Macon Speedway throughout the 2023 season.”

“I want to extend my sincerest apologies if this news disappoints anyone (might make some happy lol); it certainly was not my intention. I sure didn’t work this hard, invest this much money and have my son quit his job & move to a new state with the intent of owning Macon Speedway for 1 year. Blade has turned into a great track prep guy and an asset to Macon Speedway.”

"This is a very, very difficult decision for me, I think everyone knows that I bought Macon Speedway because I love this track. In the year I have been here, I have learned things that have made me love it more.”

“I knew this race track was special and unique, I honestly didn’t realize that it’s actually one of the most unique tracks in the country. We have hosted amazing races in Micro Sprints, Super Late Models, Non Wing Sprint Cars, Wing Sprint Cars, and Midgets this year. I’m not sure if there’s another track in the country that offers that much versatility.”

“The unwavering support from the Macon community has also weighed heavily on my decision. I am always bragging and take pride in the support I receive from the City of Macon, the local fans & racers who have donated their time, as well as the generosity of the locals that have handmade me gifts, and dropped off produce from their garden, etc. It’s a great feeling that I cannot fully express!

He concluded, “I appreciate your understanding and support going forward.”

Bob Sargent, Ken Schrader, Kenny Wallace and Tony Stewart formerly owned the track.
West Virginia Motor Speedway has been placed on the market for sale.

West Virginia Motor Speedway and it's facilities recently received an entire renovation with all brand new finishings inside the buildings. West Virginia Motor Speedway is known for its beautiful valley views and its unique terraced seating on the front straight hillside.

Greenville-Pickens Speedway in South Carolina is listed for Sale

The historic Greenville-Pickens Speedway in Easley, just west of Greenville, was recently listed on a real estate website.

According to the listing from RealtyLink, a real estate development company, ground lease or “built to suit” opportunities are available for the 305-acre property at 3800 Calhoun Memorial Highway.

Starting as a dirt track in 1940, the Greenville-Pickens Speedway hosted the first-ever, start-to-finish live-televised NASCAR race in 1971 after being paved in 1970.

The race track also holds events like the Upstate Holiday Lights Show and the Upper SC State fair.

The 2024 race season has kicked off with the Tulsa Shootout, the Chili Bowl Nationals, indoor and outdoor racing scheduling continues to grow during "the off season".

Volusia Speedway Park kicked their season off along with the World of Outlaw Late Models in January.

Cocopah kept things turning in Arizona with the IMCA.TV Winternationals.

Even racing in the Northeast kicked off with Indoor Racing Series at the PPL Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
Some folks have asked why we include photos of racecars and we've been trying to avoid this, however, this is an exercise in the amount of racing that takes place across the nation. The Winter months used to be a certain down time, however, as time moved on and people discovered people would travel and attend events, the schedules for all racing divisions in all corners of the country have grown with each year. The addition of these events continues to add pressure to the industry in many different ways, whether it be personnel, manufacturers or expendable dollars from thousands of racers or fans. We've wondered if there has been any consideration to the fact that a racer may break their budget during what is considered "the off season" and not be able to support their local program during the normal season? We've discussed this but it doesn't seem to resonate with the industry. We have to manage our steps and we hate to see anyone fail, however, there may come a time when "less is more..."

10 Tips to Help You Buy Small Business Insurance

The range of options for small business insurance can be overwhelming, especially in our industry.

Every small business owner needs to manage risk, and selecting insurance is among the easiest, and best, ways to do that. The right insurance protection helps you.

Finding the right insurance is a vital part of any business plan, but the process can be overwhelming – especially for those who’ve never purchased coverage before.

These 10 tips can help you. They’ll help you meet legal requirements, minimize your business risks, and save you headaches and money.

  1. Know the types of business insurance

Your insurance needs will vary based on a number of factors, including your industry, your specialty, and your business assets. Here are the most common business insurance policies you’ll want to consider, and what they cover:

  • General Liability Insurance covers liability lawsuits over third-party injuries, third-party property damage, or advertising injuries like defamation or copyright infringement.
  • Business Owners Policy (BOP) combines general liability insurance with commercial property insurance – usually at a lower cost than when purchased separately.
  • Commercial Property Insurance pays to repair or replace stolen, lost, or damaged business property, including your office or workspace, inventory, equipment, and furnishings.
  • Business Interruption Insurance may be included in a BOP or commercial property policy, and covers operating costs if your business is forced to temporarily close due to a storm, fire, or other event.
  • Professional Liability Insurance is popular among businesses that provide professional services, and is also known as errors and omissions insurance (E&O). It covers lawsuits over work mistakes, oversights, and negligence.
  • Cyber Insurance helps cover the costs of a data breach or other cyber incident at your business, as well as the costs if you’re sued over your client’s data breach.
  • Workers Compensation Insurance will pay medical expenses and lost wages for work-related injuries or illnesses. Coverage usually includes employer's liability insurance, that protects against employee lawsuits over negligence.
  • Commercial Auto Insurance covers medical expenses, property damage, and legal bills if your business vehicle causes an accident.
  • Hired and non-owned auto insurance (HNOA) can help pay for accidents involving a personal, rental, or leased vehicle that is used for business purposes.
  1. Consider what insurance may be legally required

Buying business insurance may not just be a good investment for your small business – it may be a necessity. Depending on your industry, your state, your clients, and your lenders, you may be required to carry certain insurance coverage.

For example, if you’re renting a commercial space, your landlord may require you to buy a general liability policy to cover potential third-party lawsuits over claims of bodily injury or property damage. Mortgage lenders often have similar requirements for business property owners.

With few exceptions, businesses with employees must carry workers' compensation insurance. Regulations vary by state, but most require you to get coverage when you hire your first employee.

Clients may also require that you carry certain coverage before they’ll hire you. The types of insurance policies can vary based on the industry and risks. Examples include:

  • Any small business that provides a service or offers advice, may be required to carry professional liability insurance.
  • An IT Consultant may be required to purchase workers’ comp insurance.
  • A construction company's contract with a client may require that they carry builder's risk insurance to cover theft or damage to property under construction.
  • We know and have access to what is required to insure your motorsports events.

Client contracts may also require you to carry a certain level of coverage, to give clients peace of mind that you’ll cover any financial losses if the worst happens. A very common requirement is to maintain a $1 million general liability insurance policy.

If the requirements of a client contract exceed the limits of your policy, you may want to consider commercial umbrella insurance. An umbrella policy provides additional coverage for liability claims made on general liability, commercial auto, or employer’s liability insurance.

Research the legal obligations for your area and industry to ensure you have proper coverage. An experienced insurance agent can help advise you on the coverage you’re likely to need.
3. Understand your industry’s risks

Every industry is different, and so are the risks to your business. For example, an accountant, need to worry about being sued if a mistake is made filing a customer's tax return. A restaurant owner, on the other hand, should be more concerned about a customer becoming sick after eating a meal at their restaurant.

Professional liability insurance can protect experts like accountants from lawsuits related to errors they make in their professional capacity, while product liability insurance can pay a restaurant's legal bills if customers become ill or suffer an allergic reaction because of the food they were served.

By carefully evaluating the risks you’re likely to face in your industry, you can buy business insurance to guard against them.
4. Prioritize business insurance coverage over cost

Once business owners know which policies they need, their next question is usually how much business insurance will cost. After all, when your budget is tight, every penny counts. However, it's important to realize that while business insurance is an added expense, it plays a crucial role in protecting your business from serious financial damage. Besides, small business owners can typically deduct the cost of the business insurance from their taxable income.

It can be tempting to pick the most economical insurance policies you can find to save on your premiums, but that could actually cost you more in the long run. Cheaper policies are priced that way for a reason. They may offer very limited coverage that leaves you vulnerable to common risks. Or they may be offered by an insurance carrier with questionable business practices, like slow claim processing times or abrupt premium hikes.

You’re better off using reputable insurance providers, and buying the most insurance coverage your budget will allow. Otherwise, you may find that your cheap insurance won’t cover your losses to keep your business running.

To get an idea of how much coverage might cost for your business, reach out to K&K Insurance or any of the insurance companies that are exhibiting at RPM.
5. Learn what might affect your insurance rates

Beyond your industry’s risks, you need to know what can affect your business insurance quote. The size of your company, your location, and the assets you wish to insure may all impact the premium you pay for coverage, among other factors. For example, your claims history and years of experience could impact how general liability insurance premiums are calculated.

While many of these factors are beyond your control, there are some steps you can take to keep your premiums down, such as:

  • Ensure you don’t allow your insurance to lapse. Breaks in coverage can cause your premiums to increase.
  • Install fire suppression systems and security alarms. These may reduce your commercial property insurance costs.
  • Create a safe work envirnoment. This can reduce the chances of an on-the-job injury, and fewer claims means lower workers’ compensation premiums.
  • Avoid having employees with poor driving records operate your business vehicles. Drivers with a good driving history will help keep rates lower.

Of course, the price you pay will also be affected by your policy limits, which are the maximum amount your insurance policy will pay on a claim. Your premium will also be affected by the deductibles you choose.

By carefully evaluating the risks you’re likely to face in your industry, you can buy business insurance to guard against them.
6. Consider your deductibles

Most business insurance policies include a deductible, which is the amount you’ll be responsible for paying before your insurance policy kicks in to help cover a loss. After your deductible is paid, your insurance carrier will then cover the rest of the claim amount, up to the policy limit.

The higher your deductible, the lower your premiums – so you might be tempted to choose a high deductible. However, you need to be sure your business can afford to pay the deductible should you ever need to file a claim. Consider this when you’re choosing your deductibles.
7. Overestimate your insurance needs

A lawsuit could be financially devastating to your business. Even if a suit is dismissed, it can still cost your business thousands of dollars in legal fees. That's why it's better to buy more than the minimum insurance coverage if you can – you never know when you might need that extra protection.

If a customer is injured at your business, or an employee gets into a car accident while running work-related errands, expenses can add up quickly. If a settlement is awarded, any amount beyond your policy limits would have to come out of your pocket.

You may also consider a commercial umbrella insurance policy to supplement your existing policies. It will cover business liability lawsuits costs that exceed your existing policy limits.
8. Work with top-rated insurance providers

The best way to ensure you have insurance coverage you can depend on is to buy business insurance from an insurance carrier you can trust.

When evaluating insurance companies, look at their ratings to find the most reputable ones. Insurance providers with an "A" rating are financially stable and have a reputation for offering quality, reliable coverage, prompt payouts, and consistent terms.

  1. Read your business insurance policies thoroughly (or have them read for you)

Policies vary widely from carrier to carrier, and each one has its own limits, premiums, deductible, and exclusions. You should make sure you understand what is covered under a policy – and what is excluded – before you buy it.

As a busy business owner, you may feel that you don’t have the time to spend on digging through the details of a policy. However, taking the time to read and understand a policy before you buy can help assure you don’t have any gaps in coverage, or get a nasty surprise if you ever need to file a claim.
10. Don’t hesitate to ask for help

Buying business insurance can be a confusing process for anyone. If you need guidance on the best insurance products for your business, or simply need a better understanding of insurance terms and coverage, be sure to reach out to an insurance agent.
