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 industy 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 2016 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 $250 product certificate to FK Rod Ends.

The winner of the “Team FK Driver of the Month” for the month of April goes to……
George Brunnhoelzl, III
NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour
Ask any driver if they’d accept winning two out of every three races and 99-percent of them would probably say yes. George Brunnhoelzl, III did exactly that during the month of April winning two of the three NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour races during the month.
Brunnhoelzl kick off the month by winning against a tough field at the tricky tri-oval of Concord Speedway (NC). He followed that up by making the trip to South Boston Speedway (VA), the home of the famous Bologna Burger, and winning his second race in a row.
His other finish during the month wasn’t too shabby either, he finished fifth at Caraway Speedway at the end of the month. Brunnhoelzl, a four-time NWSMT champion, currently sits just nine points back of Burt Myers in the point standings.
For his performance on the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour during the month of March, “GB3” has been named the Team FK Driver of the Month.
Other drivers receiving votes: Ryan Partridge, Doug Coby, Timmy Solomito, Casey Roderick, Josh Richards
