Although it was scheduled for late August and hopefully well after the country re-opens from the COVID-19 pandemic, Parts Unlimited decided to pull the plug on their Madison NVP show.

I personally think it is a good idea. I hope, that by late August we’ll be traveling and working with people on a more normal basis, but how many dealers will spend the time and money to attend after being “shut-down” for two or three months already in 2020.

I’m sure the Parts Unlimited crew is already looking at their 2021 show schedule and without Madison in 2020, the Louisville 2021 should be a great show. Stay tuned as more information becomes available.

See their entire press release below.

We are very hopeful that races, rallies and events of this type return much sooner than the scheduled dates of NVP. The decision was made based on what we feel is in the best interest of the industry. The time required by all for an event like NVP is substantial. We feel that our Dealers, Vendors and Reps will benefit from having that time to focus on their business and in turn, this will benefit us all.

Parts Unlimited and Drag Specialties are looking forward and planning for the future with one goal: “continue to support our Dealers and Vendors as we work through these challenging times.” 

This plan started March 16 when our Sales Team was pulled off the road for the health, safety, and well-being of the industry and our communities. At the same time, we took steps to ensure safe working environments at our Distribution Centers. 

On April 4 we announced significant changes to our Dealer Medal Level and Cumulative Programs to assist our Dealers while their business changes. We encourage our Dealers to visit: dealer.parts-unlimited.com or dealer.dragspecialties.com for details on this and future announcements.

We will be there for you throughout and are looking forward to putting a plan together with you as business returns to normal. We wish everyone a safe and healthy spring.
