I'm new to Corel Draw and I'm having a hard time getting this logo into something easy to print in vinyl. Customer wants a one color option as well as a multi color. I can't seem to get the checkered flag into something usable.
For something like that, tracing won't do the best job, but you might could get it close. In tracing, it will recognize every shade of color in the design. You can combine (or merge, it might be called) all the shades of the red to remove the gradient.
As another suggestion, you may have to send it to someone who vectorizes. (The Vector Doctor is one example, have used him, great service, but there's a bunch more out there)
the logo needs to be vectorized. You can do this by using the tools and redrawing "tracing" the logo. Learning your program is your best bet yet using an outside source is also a good option.
Google vector logo recreation tutorials for CorelDRAW or Illustrator or what ever prog you use.
You will find a lot of things like this are simple and can easily be made and fairly quickly.
You mention making it ready for "Printing on Vinyl", Are you actually printing the image / logo onto say white vinyl or are you wanting to Cut all the various colors in vinyl?
