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 North Carolina native kicked off his month of July by scoring his sixth South Boston 200 victory at South Boston Speedway (VA). He followed that up by winning a 150-lap race the following weekend at Motor Mile Speedway (VA) and won one of two 75-lap races at the track on July 16.
On the weekend of July 23, Pulliam made his way to Caraway Speedway (NC) and bested Tommy Lemons, Jr. in a pair of 50-lap Late Model Stock races. He ended the month this past weekend by winning another 150-lap race at Motor Mile to bring his win total to 11.
