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.

The winner of the “Team FK Driver of the Month” for the month of July is…
Super Late Models
Justin Mondeik has had a year to remember in the Wisconsin Super Late Model ranks, with July being his strongest month yet. The Gleason, WI driver won five races during the month of July, from local shows to the biggest victory of his career to date.
It started on Friday night, July 3 with a win in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. He made the trip to Norway Speedway and won the Stateline Challenge over a stout field of cars, while bookending the month with another win at Norway and adding a third victory as well.
He defended the State Park Speedway home turf on Saturday, July 25 when the ARCA Midwest Tour came to town, taking his biggest win to date in the Larry Detjens Memorial 125 for his first-career win with the series. He also won a local race at the Wausau, WI facility during the month, and currently leads the points standings at the 1/3-mile oval.
For a strong month in the Upper Midwest during what’s been a breakout year, Justin Mondeik has been named the FK Rod Ends Short Track Driver of the Month for July 2020.
Other drivers receiving votes this month were Kyle Larson, Dan Angelicchio, Jeremy Doss, Bubba Pollard, Angelo Belsito, Matt Hirschman and Jimmy Owens.
