Noblesville, Nov. 28, 2012: Derek Daly, founder of the Derek Daly Academy, (DDA), will be on hand throughout the Performance Racing Industry Show taking place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from November 28 to December 1. Daly will kick off the show by taking part in the Race Track Business Conference presented By National Speedway Directory. Led by master race promoter Humpy Wheeler, Daly will join an impressive array of speakers for this inaugural conference. From promotion strategies to revenue streams, the Race Track Business Conference 2012 is designed to help racetrack owners and operators tune up their businesses for 2013. The program takes place on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 in meeting Room S320A.

That event will be followed up by Daly's must-see presentation titled Understanding Career Development for Race Car Drivers Presented by Skip Barber Racing Schools taking place on Friday from 1:30PM to 3:00PM in Meeting Room S230C located along the main concourse entrance. Daly uses his distinguished 35 years of motorsports experience to map out a career plan, an environment plan and a financial plan that fits the drivers' personal career path. The objective of this program is to give racers and their families the tools to find the funding. Our job is to give you the knowledge and understanding of how to go about securing funds. Also DDA will map out activation programs among your list of contacts and connections, as these are the best sources of support especially in the initial phases of the drivers racing career.

"The Performance Racing Industry Show is a great event and I am very pleased to be there again this year. The Industry Conference on Wednesday will be great for those folks looking to understand what the industry needs to do to promote itself," comments Daly. "Our driver development presentation is critical for any young athlete looking to make a career in motor racing. We will cover the important aspects through our Champion's Pyramid and how that integrates into the DDA X Factor. Every young driver at the show must be at this seminar."
