SME Motorsports Indianapolis will provide Conference content and Exposition demonstrations on manufacturing innovations for the motorsports industry. Important industry trends and new manufacturing opportunities will be covered in areas such as machine tools, rapid prototyping, ethanol production, carbon composites manufacturing, and safety innovations such as the SAFER barrier, the HANS Device, and tire manufacturing technology. In addition, industry experts will keynote the event and educational sessions on how to develop a career in motorsports will be offered.

SME is consulting with Indianapolis-based motorsports entities such as The Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the Indy Racing League (IRL), Champ Car and United States Auto Club (USAC) to develop an event that offers leading edge manufacturing technologies for the motorsports industry. Already, SME Motorsports has appeared as the primary sponsor on Mishael Abbott's Crawford Motorsports #8 Indy Racing League Indy Pro Series racer in the Freedom 100 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in promotion of SME Motorsports Indianapolis.

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway annually hosts the largest attended events for the IRL, National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) and Formula One. The Indianapolis 500 (IRL) is the largest single day sporting event in the world with race day attendance of 425,000 people. The Brickyard 400 is by far NASCAR's largest attended race with a crowd of 285,000 people. The United States Grand Prix is Formula One's largest attended race with a crowd of 125,000 people. In addition the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) annually has its signature event, the U.S. Nationals at Indianapolis Raceway Park. With all of these large racing events located in Indianapolis many motorsports teams have elected to call the city their home, making Indianapolis an ideal locale to demonstrate manufacturing technologies that are relevant to the motorsports industry.
