Quarter Mile Foundation presence at SEMA Show 2011|
By Steve Cole
Parma Heights, Ohio (September 29, 2011) ' The Quarter Mile Foundation will have a prominent presence at the SEMA Show 2011, according to Traci Hrudka, the Foundation's chairman."
'Thanks to the efforts on the foundation's behalf by SEMA and CONVEXX, the SEMA Show's management firm, particularly Peter MacGillivray (SEMA Vice President, Events & Communications) and Chuck Schwartz (Chairman of CONVEXX), we have secured an excellent location in the Grand Concourse of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
'The location (Booth no. 10900) is in a very high traffic, high visibility area between the North and Central Halls. Being able to work with the Association and the Show management assures us of an excellent venue to share our goals and accomplishments with show attendees and the other exhibitors.'
As it did in 2010, the Foundation will be conducting digital video interviews of industry and drag racing pioneers throughout the course of the show. These first person narratives are at the core of the PROJECT 1320 documentary film series about the birth and growth of drag racing and the performance automotive aftermarket between the late 1940s to the end of the '80s.
The Foundation encourages you to stop at our exhibit area and further familiarize yourself with our efforts to preserve the history of drag racing and the industry it created. For more information visit our website: www.PROJECT1320.com
Since the interviewing process began at the 2010 SEMA Show, the Foundation has interviewed 66 individuals, and accumulated over 80 hours of their recollections and observations.
