WKA’s Keith Shampine and Coyote’s Jim Lipari will work the WKA exhibit throughout the three-day event.

The 2012 seminars have been revised and expanded to include the latest technical updates as well as more information on the role of the tech inspector, pre-race tech inspection, tech room procedures and the protest and appeal process. WKA members who wish to become certified as WKA Technical Inspectors will take the SFI/WKA Certification Examination at the conclusion of the seminars. Those passing the open book examination will receive a 2-year WKA/SFI Technical Inspector certification.

The cost for the seminar is $125. That includes the seminar, the SFI examination and a copy of the 2013 Technical Manual. Those successfully completing the examination will receive a clothing patch and an ID card and will be included on the list of SFI/WKA Certified Technical Inspectors.

If you’re not a current WKA member, you will have to purchase a year membership, in addition to the $125 seminar fee, for $55.

The Parts Peddler Trade Show, in its 33rd consecutive year, is one of the best auto racing trade shows in the country. All forms of motorsports are represented. Show attendees annually find great deals on safety equipment, tools, engine, suspension, apparel, and much more.
