ST. CLOUD, MN – The big WISSOTA racers’ weekend in St. Cloud this year will once again feature the huge Expo, driver seminars of several types and the national awards banquet. All will be held in the St. Cloud Civic Center, in downtown St. Cloud, on Friday and Saturday, November 8-9.
The annual Midwest Racing Expo presented by WISSOTA delivers again in 2013, and the exhibitor list includes not only a large group of returning exhibitors eager to show off their products and services but also a large group of new participants. The booth lineup is both large and diverse and every racer, crew member and hardcore dirt track race fan will find something of interest at the 2013 WISSOTA Expo.
The Expo isn’t just for the national award-winning drivers attending the banquet. The Expo is for EVERY driver and EVERY crew member affiliated with a dirt track racing team in the upper Midwest.
In fact, if you are involved in any way in the dirt track industry as a driver, a car owner, a crew member, a promoter, a track worker or a fan – you’ll have fun browsing through the Expo floor, where you’ll find everything from hard parts to soft cotton shirts for sale at more than 100 booths.
There are things to buy, deals to secure, friends to make, knowledge to gain and bench racing to do at the Expo.
The Expo floor opens at 3 p.m. on Friday, November 8 and will be open until 8 p.m. Saturday’s hours are from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
To maximize your Expo experience, spend the night in St. Cloud – there’s a lot to do after dark in downtown St. Cloud – and spend part of both days cruising the Expo floor as well as attending seminars specifically planned for racers like you.
The civic center’s concession area will be open most of the day, so you can grab a drink, a snack, or some lunch right there in the building, then get back to fun and business in the Expo.
Many racers bring their families along to St. Cloud for the big WISSOTA weekend festivities. There are tons of great places to shop in St. Cloud and in the surrounding area, and many of the motels have great pools and game rooms to keep the kids busy.
Thousands of WISSOTA racers, car owners, crew members and fans have made the Expo part of their annual post-season ritual, and you should, too. The Expo and the national awards banquet aren’t just for the top racers in the national points – they are for EVERY racer in WISSOTA.
If you haven’t put the Expo into your plans the past couple years, make this the year. Check out the driver seminars and you WILL improve your understanding of your race car – and you WILL be a better racer in 2014.
And if you want others to help you improve even more, visit with the professional builders, manufacturers and other consultants who will have exhibits on the Expo floor. There’s no other event like this around WISSOTA country, and it only happens once each year.
Don’t miss your one and only chance to hit the Expo with thousands of others from across the WISSOTA region.
After the Expo doors close on Saturday afternoon, across the hall at 5:00 p.m., the 29th annual WISSOTA national awards banquet begins. Cap off your big weekend in St. Cloud by attending the banquet, where you can visit with all of your racing friends and help honor the best in racing from 2013. Last year, more than 700 racers and race enthusiasts attended the event. To order banquet tickets, call (320) 275-9922 by Friday, November 1.
