PRI's 30th Annual Show: New Parts, Technologies, Connections

Featured Products Showcase Journalist Reveal Top Picks

Highlighting nearly 500 of the hottest, most innovative motorsports products available today, the inaugural Featured Products Showcase at the 2017 Performance Racing Industry Trade Show made it easier than ever for buyers and media to explore a collection of the industry's latest and greatest in one convenient location. 

"One of the best new additions [for 2017] is the Featured Products Showcase section," declared Bob Beucler of The Dragtime News, an online drag racing publication. Indeed, Beucler was among dozens of journalists who visited the Showcase during PRl's 30th Anniversary Show at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis last December. Others who perused the Showcase agreed, noting that the new feature, located in a dedicated exhibit area just off the Convention Center's Green Hall, saved time and helped them develop a list of exhibitors to visit and products to track. 

For example, Jef White with THE SHOP magazine was particularly struck by the LED Switch Panel with built-in USB port and circuit breaker displayed by Moroso Performance Products. "It has a modern, racer-friendly design," he said, "and really serves a need, with more and more racers recording data with their smartphones and action cameras." 

In fact, many of the racing journalists we surveyed at PRI 2017 found it difficult to narrow down their favorites, which is why the following selection of top product picks-from those who cover motorsports for a living-represent just a sample of the feedback we received on this acclaimed new PRI Show feature.

Moroso inks new two-year sponsorship pact with IMCA

GUILFORD, Conn. – A company already recognized for its commitment to IMCA drivers has renewed its awards program with the sanctioning body for the 2018 and 2019 race seasons. 

Moroso again gives product certificates based on regional standings for IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars and IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, and on national point standings for IMCA Late Models, IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Cars, Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and IMCA Southern SportMods.

The new agreement will take Moroso, of Guilford, Conn., through its 14th season of IMCA sponsorship. 

First-place drivers in point standings for each of the five Modified regions, both Stock Car and both Hobby Stock regions, and national Late Model, Sprint Car, Northern SportMod and Southern SportMod standings all receive certificates good for Ultra 40 spark plug wire sets.

Runners-up and third place finishers get Blue Max spark plug wire sets.

All Moroso certificates will be presented during the national awards banquet in November or mailed beginning the following week from the IMCA home office.

Information about the more than 4,000-plus Moroso products for high performance or street use is available by calling 203 453-6571, on Facebook and at the website.

“Adding a second year to the new Moroso agreement demonstrates their commitment to IMCA and grassroots racers across the country,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder observed. “Moroso has been a proponent of IMCA racing for a long time and that continues now with an eye on the future."

5th Gen Camaro Install: Moroso Frame Connectors And Driveshaft Loop

We asked our friends at Cunningham Motorsports in Murrieta, CA, to help us with an install. They specialize in late model GM and Ford performance and we knew we could call on them to find a customer with a 5th gen Camaro who wanted frame connectors and a driveshaft loop. Their customer, Rick Shapard of Menifee, CA, has a nice 2010 Camaro that has seen some time on the autocross course, so stiffening up his chassis was something that interested him. He said it handled well, but we'll get some feedback from him once we get these parts installed and he hits the track again.

Shop Manager Mike Gallo of Cunningham Motorsports did the install on the 2010 Camaro belonging to Rick Shapard. Moroso had just the parts we needed, and their frame connectors for the 5th generation Camaro were the perfect fit for Rick's car. And when we say perfect fit, we mean perfect fit. The install went very well and everything lined up great to the underside of this F-body. Attention to the installation instructions is imperative, get ahead of yourself and you'll soon find out that you should take your time and work one side at a time.

Moroso also released a new, reusable oil-pan gasket for the 7.3L engine - which improves upon the factory silicone sealant method.
