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 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.

The winner of the “Team FK Driver of the Month” for the month of June is…
“Yung Money” had a month nobody will soon forget. In 18 races during the month of June, Larson won 10 races, which included eight in a row with three different series in two different cars, while finishing worse than second just twice all month.
His winning ways started in a Sprint Car by taking All Star Circuit of Champions wins at 81 Speedway, Lawton Speedway, and Devil’s Bowl Speedway in a four day stretch. Next, Larson took on the World of Outlaws, sweeping a weekend doubleheader at Knoxville Raceway to bring a consecutive win total to five.
He then turned his attention to the Midget for USAC Indiana Midget Week. He won the opening three events at Paragon Speedway, Gas City I-69 Speedway and Lincoln Park Speedway. Larson also added a win at Lawrenceburg Speedway, while finishing second at Lincoln Park and Kokomo Speedway to earn his first Indiana Midget Week title in historic fashion.
He then bookended the month of June with a win at Grandview Speedway on Night #6 of PA Speedweek Tuesday night. Larson finds himself in the thick of the PA Speedweek title chase alongside PA Posse favorites Danny Dietrich and Freddie Rahmer, as well as dirt racing favorite Rico Abreu.
For his unbelievable month in dirt open-wheel racing, Kyle Larson has been named FK Rod Ends Driver of the Month for June 2020.
