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 2021 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.

The winner of the “Team FK Driver of the Month” for the month of June is…
Dirt Late Models
Winning back-to-back crown jewel races is a major feat. Doing so in a four-day span is unheard of.
“Big Sexy” Brandon Overton bagged $254,000 in one weekend by winning both the 2020 and 2021 versions of the Dirt Late Model Dream at Eldora Speedway. He swept the entire weekend’s action, also winning both his heat races and both his preliminary features.
His hot streak continued in Pennsylvania in another marquee race for the World of Outlaws Late Model Series. He drove from fifth to win the Firecracker 100 preliminary feature at Lernerville Speedway on June 25, then followed it with the Firecracker 100 victory one night later
For sweeping the Dirt Late Model Dream weekend and going undefeated in main events during the month of June, Brandon Overton has been named the FK Rod Ends Driver of the Month for March 2021.
Other drivers receiving votes this month include: Tony Stewart, Jon McKennedy and Josh St. Clair.
