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 2020 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.

Super Late Models
The multi-time PASS North champion won just one race during the month of August, coming on the second-to-last day of the month. However, it would be the biggest of his career.
In his 14th start in the event, the Maine driver scored his first Oxford 250 win after leading 101 laps in the crown jewel. He took the point for the final time with 71 to go and never looked back, holding off a late charge from nine-time Oxford Plains Speedway champion Jeff Taylor in the closing laps.
For breaking through and winning his long-awaited first Oxford 250, Johnny Clark has been named the FK Rod Ends Short Track Driver of the Month for August 2020.
Other drivers receiving votes this month were Kyle Larson, Josh Berry, Jimmy Owens, Craig Lutz, Tyler Roahrig, Tim McCreadie and Kody Swanson.
