Maximize your Show Experience with Exciting Special Events
Legendary NASCAR driver, Rusty Wallace will kick off FABTECH 2015 in the fast lane Monday, November 9 with a keynote presentation demonstrating that anything is possible through the power of teamwork. Wallace’s 25-year career included a Rookie of the Year Award, 55 Cup wins, and recognition by NASCAR as one of the 50 greatest drivers of all time. Now an ESPN/ABC sports commentator, he brings his knowledge of NASCAR to television audiences everywhere, announcing the most exciting races, including the Indy 500. Rusty will use lessons from racing to leave attendees more motivated to run a winning organization.
Later in the line-up the Professional Welders Competition gives spectators the opportunity to cheer on contestants as they compete to earn the title of Best Welder in America. Competitors will make a single-pass SMAW weld with E7018 on low-carbon steel. Speed and quality will be the criteria. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, November 20 at 11:00 a.m. Professional welders interested in competing can sign up onsite ($15 entry fee) to compete for a $2,500 first prize, a $1,000 second prize, and a $500 third prize.
