‘Spot-On’ will improve race teams’ on-track communications
Salisbury, MA — SpeedwayEXPO has announced that Concord, North Carolina’s Racing Electronics will sponsor a spotter seminar at XPO. RE provides radio equipment to top NASCAR drivers and crews as well as to TV announcers.
RE will also give away a RT-006 Deluxe Spotter Headset, the company’s best-selling two-way Platinum unit equipped with all the features top spotters have asked for, including an extra-loud five-pin scanner option, gel ear seals, and a noise-canceling flex boom microphone. The headset will be presented to one lucky attendee at the seminar.
There’s potential for significant communication improvement among local and area touring teams. Radio is an effective tool to help teams win races, but clear reception and effective communication is key to success. The RE seminar will help racing teams achieve both.
Produced by Speedway Illustrated Magazine and sponsored by Sunoco, SpeedwayEXPO will be at the Big E, in West Springfield, MA, Feb. 27 – March 1, 2009. It is the largest event for drivers, teams, tracks, and racing vendors in the Northeast. SpeedwayEXPO will launch the 2009 racing season with more than 200 new race cars and old favorites, and hundreds of exhibits for drivers, crews, and fans from a dozen states and Canada. Thousands of enthusiasts pack more than 130,000 square feet of exhibit space to take part in seminars and demonstrations; see retailers of racing gear and memorabilia; and meet today’s and yesterday’s racing celebrities.

With advice and hands-on tips from experts, XPO’s Racing Electronics-sponsored radio seminar will show racers how to achieve trouble-free, reliable, clear radio reception. Effective communication is also about managing conversations between driver, spotter, and crew, so SpeedwayEXPO has invited some of the Northeast’s best and most experienced spotters to discuss the dos and don’ts of what to say on the radio. All seminars are free to XPO attendees.
