You know you’re at the right show when a Ferrari 458 race car is the first thing you see.

With the Las Vegas SEMA Show not even a month past, the Performance Racing Industry show rolled into the Orange County Convention Center, in Orlando, Florida, and brought with it plenty of vendors and manufacturers showing off their latest performance-oriented products. Unlike the SEMA Show, PRI brings a different vibe and atmosphere where you can talk shop to many like-minded enthusiasts without the crazy foot traffic or constant interruptions. PRI is a show where one can really concentrate on what is new and exciting in the racing world.

This year marks PRI's last show in Florida. In 2013, PRI will be moving to Indianapolis, Indiana, in hopes of drawing more vendors and race fans alike.
