Schedule Set For 50th RPM @ Reno Western Workshops; Formica & Clapp Lead Many Speakers & Discussions
Story By: RACING PROMOTIONS MONTHLY – DAYTONA BEACH, FL – The 50th Annual RPM@Reno Western Workshops held at the Eldorado at the Row in downtown Reno, Nevada are set to take place Wednesday, November 30 and Thursday, December 1.
The adjustment of one-day was made to accommodate those who have an extensive travel schedule during the many events that take place during this busy time of year, further emphasizing that there is no true “off-season” in the sport.
There will be a brief registration hour on Tuesday, November 29 for early attendees at Novi in the Eldorado. The 50th RPM@Reno Western 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 motorsports as well as microphone stints from television and media personality Ralph Sheheen. The “Ex Disney Guy” John Formica, who first appeared at the 49th Annual RPM@Daytona Workshops last February will bring his unique and dynamic presentation to the Western Workshops this time. In addition Ken Clapp, former NASCAR executive and overall ambassador of the sport will address folks gathered in attendance at the Eldorado for the Workshops. It will be a “can’t miss” moment when Clapp steps to the podium. He will also be signing his recently published book, his personal historic memoirs, “From Sea to Shining Sea” which was written with help by top motorsports author, Mark “Bones” Bourcier and published by Coastal 181.
This lineup is just the tip of the iceberg in the RPM@Reno Western 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.
