FK Rod Ends adds track naming rights to support of 2018 Keyser Wild West Shootout at Arizona Speedway
SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. (Oct. 25, 2017) — FK Rod Ends has taken its support of the Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout to a new level for the event’s 2018 edition, obtaining track naming rights for the six-race mid-winter extravaganza that takes place at Arizona Speedway outside Phoenix.
The 3/8-mile oval that hosts the Jan. 6-14 Super Late Model-headlined racing meet is now officially FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway, adding another corporate tie-in for a miniseries that continues its steady growth. The company sponsored the Wild West Shootout pace truck in 2017 and will maintain that deal as well for the ’18 program.
Based in Southington, Conn., FK Rod Ends quietly came on the motorsports scene three decades ago and has become well known throughout the sport. The firm offers almost 10,000 combinations of rod ends and spherical bearings crafted at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
The 2018 Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts will pay out over $200,000 in purses over six nights of Super Late Model, USRA Modified and X-Mod racing. Tripleheaders are set for Jan. 6, 7, 10, 12, 13 and 14 at FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway.
