The grand daddy of performance and racing trade shows opens today in Indianapolis, Indiana to show case thousands of new products from the brightest and most innovative companies on the globe.

When it comes to the powerboat industry and all the high performance applications we enjoy I have to tell you it didn’t start here. The innovation were enjoying all stemmed from development in racing from the automotive industry and our lineage can be traced right back there.

So a visit to the PRI shows a good glimpse into what we might just see in the marine industry in the near future as well what innovations are making there way into racing. Here’s some pictures of ProCharger, Holley, and a host of others. Check out the liquid cooled under shirt for a mere $750. Innovation is alive and well in America.
