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 2019 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.  To learn more about FK Rod Ends and their growing inventory visit fkrodends.com.

Connor Okrzesik

Super Late Models

 

To start the new year, Connor Okrzesik has been named FK Rod Ends Driver of the Month for January 2019 after a breakthrough Super Late Model win.

 

The Alabama youngster had been searching for his first career Super Late Model win, knocking on the door of victory lane on several occasions in 2018.  Okrzesik broke through the door in dramatic fashion in the ARCA/CRA Super Series 200-lap feature of CRA SpeedFest 2019 at Crisp Motorsports Park (GA).

 

Okrzesik defeated a field of some of the top Late Model racers in the country for the victory.  More impressively, he held off NASCAR champion Kyle Busch on a late-race restart, thriving under pressure to take the win.

 

As a result of his triumph in Cordele, Georgia, Okrzesik has been named FK Rod Ends Driver of the Month for January 2019.
