Dart Machinery has announced they’ll be occupying peninsula booth 2211 at this year’s PRI exhibition in Indianapolis, December 12-14, 2013. As anticipated they will also be holding their annual seminar in rooms 231 and 232—their 17th consecutive event.
Successful race engine building is a craft, part inspiration and part know-how, and this seminar attracts a great many engine builders who are keen to learn more. Nonetheless, Dart welcomes all enthusiasts who are interested in discussions involving the problems and solutions encountered in race engine building, testing, developing, and maintaining.
The core themes of this year’s seminar will include the introduction of new products, Sprint car matters, and how access to quality race car engine components and systems have changed the racers’ prospects.
Dart’s head, Richard Maskin, will open the proceedings by bringing the audience up to date on the company’s latest engine blocks: the LS Next, the new SHP400 as well as the 305, a recent Sprint car unit.
French Grimes, head of RaceSaver the acclaimed Sprint car organization, which embraces almost 1,000 racers, will take the stage to discuss the 305—particularly how Dart’s intervention saved the race block from extinction and the potential that lies ahead for 305 Sprint car racing.
Last but not least David Reher of the famed Texas engine building firm Reher Morrison will speak on the availability and quality of today’s race engine parts. From pistons and rings, connecting rods and cranks, to cylinder heads, blocks and oiling systems David will share his considerable insight.
Dart is a fascinating Michigan success story. Founded at the school of hard knocks in NHRA Pro Stock racing, there has never been a better proving ground. Says company Head Richard Maskin, “We’re looking forward to this year’s show—we’ve devoted considerable time preparing for it and we have lots of interesting products to show.”
