Via growth, acquisition and utilization of SMI's eight speedways, SMI Properties has developed a merchandising operation to fully complement the vertical structure of the company.

SMI Properties operates high-traffic retail gift shops, year-round, at SMI speedways. For major events SMI Properties will supplement the gift shops, and its other permanent concourse souvenir locations, with a traveling fleet of merchandise trailers to further increase venue presence.

SMI Properties’ trackside merchandise subsidiary, “Sports Design”, provides race team, driver and corporate sponsor clients with their own “custom retail rigs” at every NASCAR race from February through November. “Motorsports by Mail”, SMI Properties’ e-commerce and catalog company, supplements its 24-hour, 7-day-a-week retail e-commerce operation with periodic special program flyers to more than one million race fans.

These additional sources of distribution have increased the effectiveness of SMI Properties’ program to source, design, manufacture apparel, inventory and distribute any item, collectible or gift.
