Senoia Raceway Staff Heads to Florida for RPM Workshop
February 12, 2013
Senoia Raceway promoter Tim Moses and track staff members will be heading to Daytona Beach, FL, next week for the three day workshop produced by Racing Promotion Monthly. Moses has benefited from attending workshops in Nevada and Florida the past few years since he and his brother Tony reopened the 3/8ths mile track just west of Senoia, GA. The duo sparked a new era of racing at the once shuttered facility by placing a layer of clay on the asphalt surface and reintroducing dirt track racing to the region in 2010.
“We have learned a lot from other promoters at the workshops,” said Tim Moses. “The promoters we have met are some of the most successful players in the short track racing business. We have used some of the ideas we learned at the workshops and have retooled others to work in our business plan. The RPM Workshops have been a key to our success and growth the first three years.”
Racing Promotion Monthly has been presenting workshops since 1972 with two annual meetings in Reno, NV, and Daytona Beach, FL. Promoters enjoy three days of seminars ranging in topics from rules to ticket sales to promotional ideas. The premise of ‘Learn, Share, Profit’ has been a fundamental avenue for success with hundreds of promoters across the country.
“Where else can my staff meet with the promoters of Eldora Speedway, the Chili Bowl Nationals and other well known tracks to talk about how to make these facilities and events make money,” added Moses. “I can call on these guys anytime during the season or while I am making a decision on different aspects of the business.”
Drivers, crew members and fans all benefit from Moses dedication to success. Next week Moses will bring along other staff members to the RPM Workshops. The staff will learn about the latest in technical inspection and rules enforcement along with a few tips on marketing with the ever growing social media outlets.
“We will come out of the meetings energized and ready to get the new season rolling,” said Moses. “It is our spark to get the fire burning. The season is only a month away and we want to hit the ground running.”
Senoia Raceway opens on Saturday, March 31, with a full night of racing in the Late Models, B Cadets, Hobby Stocks, Mini Stocks, Bombers and Modified Mini.
