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 2018 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……
It’s not often that a race car driver can say that they’ve won a dogfight with a former NASCAR Cup Series champion and one of, if not the best, current Super Late Model racers in America.
Brian Campbell can say just that after beating Kyle Busch and Bubba Pollard in one of the most entertaining races of the 2018 season thus far. Campbell came out on top of a battle with Busch and Pollard to win the $20,000 Money in the Bank 150 at Berlin Raceway (MI) earlier this month.
Although that was his biggest win of the month, it was not his only win. The driver from Battle Creek, Michigan also scored an ARCA/CRA Super Series victory at Toledo Speedway (OH) and a JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour win at Baer Field Motorsports Park (IN) last weekend.
Combined with a trio of Super Late Model wins at Berlin Raceway earlier this year, Campbell’s current No. 47 Super Late Model remains undefeated with five straight victories.
For his impressive performance during the month, Brian Campbell has been named the FK Rod Ends Driver of the Month for the month of June.
Others receiving votes: Bobby McCarty, Bubba Pollard, Kyle Larson, Ryan Preece, Sheldon Creed and Stewart Friesen
