Innovative Spectator Products, makers of RACEceiver, was founded in 2001 by Joe Vinson and Ken Pirkle. The Company was founded based on the concept of making a smaller, more user friendly radio scanner for NASCAR fans. Ken, who worked in two-way radio sales, had been a racing enthusiast all his life and was in tune with the needs of race fans. Joe was in the paging and cellular phone sales business and had ventured into pager manufacturing. The pair met after the 2001 Daytona 500 and discussed the possibility of making a smaller, better scanner for NASCAR fans. A year later, RACEceiver was born. Over the next 3 years, the Company and the product improved through trial and error, and a lot of hard work. This has allowed race officials to talk to the driver for safety and efficiency purposes without having the drivers talk back. The plan was so successful that RACEceiver became the title sponsor of the Legends Series which opened the eyes of the racing fans, drivers and industry leaders to the value the RACEceiver as a one-way race control device. Today, Joe and Karen Vinson are the sole owner of Innovative Spectator Products and the future of RACEceiver continues to improve with innovative technology for the grass root racing industry.
