Rising to the challenge is what separates a top-notch driver from the rest of the pack. Whether it’s dominating a race, going on a winning streak or sealing a win with a late-race pass, drivers slowly rise to the top of the field and make a name for themselves.
That’s why the FK Rod Ends, who has nearly 10,000 combinations of rod ends and spherical bearings available and carefully crafts their products, is proud to honor a monthly “Team FK Driver of the Month” from the short track ranks of America on Speed51.com. Each month, an esteemed panel of short track industry insiders will vote on which driver had the most success on the track. The driver with the most votes will then be the “Team FK Driver of the Month” and will receive a $25 product certificate to use at FK Rod Ends. At the end of the 2018 season, the driver that received the most votes throughout the season will then be the “Team FK Driver of the Year” and will be awarded a (to be determined) prize from FK Rod Ends.

Dirt Late Models
Superman is flying high again. After a subpar 2017 season, Davenport has returned to his winning ways in 2018 after joining forces with car owner Lance Landers.
With his “main cheerleader” Mark Martin cheering him on, Davenport scored four victories during Florida Speedweeks. The driver of the No. 49 kicked things off with a pair of Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victories at East Bay Raceway Park before parking it in victory lane at Bubba Raceway Park. His final win came in the DIRTcar Late Model portion of the DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park.
With momentum on his side this early in the season, Davenport has made it known that he will be a force to be reckoned with in 2018.
For his impressive performance during the month of February, Jonathan Davenport has been named the FK Rod Ends Driver of the Month for the month of February.
Others receiving votes: Cole Anderson, Donny Schatz, Harrison Burton, Nick Hoffman and Tim McCreadie.
