SIRA is very pleased to announce that the Clarion Waterfront Hotel & Conference Center, in Indianapolis, has been selected as the site for our 2015 SIRA Awards Banquet. We will be holding this event Saturday, November 14th. I know it's way early to be thinking about the season end, but I want everybody to mark their calendars now! This new venue will reflect the effort you all put into this race season, and is located just outside the Speedway, Indiana area. We've got a great evening planned, will hand out some well earned rewards, raffle off some fantastic items, and conclude with a little partying and dancing! Details will soon follow, and we will begin selling tickets ahead of time at all our remaining 2015 races.
