DEARBORN, Mich., November 22, 2005 Tony Stewart Racing, whose owner Tony Stewart just wrapped up the 2005 NASCAR Championship this past weekend, will headline the show floor at the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) new motorsports event, Manufacturing for Performance". The conference and exposition will be held January 23-25, 2006 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. Stewart's team, which is a passion for the versatile NASCAR, IndyCar and USAC champion, will be featured on the show floor on January 24-25 at The Performance Theater. "The competition level is so tight right now - any extra bit of speed or performance you can squeeze out of your car can be the difference between wining or losing," said Stewart. "That's why I'm glad SME is bringing the Manufacturing for Performance" event to Indianapolis. Now motorsports manufacturers and race teams can see all the latest manufacturing processes and technologies so necessary in maintaining a winning edge right in their own backyard."

The Performance Theater is an exciting on-the-show-floor venue designed to illustrate trackside engineering. Manufacturers will have opportunities to learn more about how to connect with the best applications available in aerodynamics, additive manufacturing, advanced materials, design, machining, prototyping, advanced fabrication, welding, measurement and testing, finishing and coating, sensors, and aerospace technology transfer. Attendees will also participate in conference sessions and learn how to reduce cycle times, improve surface finishes, increase part repeatability and quality, and accelerate product development times.

All levels of motorsports manufacturing from one-man machine shops to race teams experimenting with state-of-the-art technologies will explore ideas for improved performance in a sport where speed is king. Racing engineers investigating advanced materials, prototypes and tooling for improved quality and safety will be able to speak with experts regarding engine building, components, safety and customization.
