SOUTHINGTON, Conn. — Passing the most cars in the main event will earn a $100 contingency award from FK Rod Ends during the 2018 USMTS campaign.


The nation’s premier manufacturer of precision rod ends and spherical bearings, the FK Rod Ends Hard Charger Award will recognize the driver that improves his or her starting spot to finishing position in every USMTS main event this year.


FK Rod Ends will also supply a set of rod ends to top three finishers in the overall FK Rod Ends Hard Charger points at season’s end.


“FK Rod Ends is proud to partner with the USMTS series once again for the 2018 season,” said Brian McAllister, FK Rod Ends Motorsports Sales & Marketing Director. “Being associated with this premier modified sanctioning body will allow FK Rod Ends to show off our line of both rod ends and spherical bearings to a wide range of people.


“With American-made quality and dependability, you will be sure to see more FK-equipped racers in the winner’s circle than any other rod end company out there.”


FK Rod Ends came onto the scene quietly over 35 years ago and quickly won over their customers with fair pricing and plenty of inventory. While the industrial market struggled to get product from the old stand-bys, the racing market embraced a supplier that would maintain inventory throughout the limited season.


Recently, to further assure timely delivery, FK Rod Ends set up two regional warehouses. Filled to the brim with inventory, these warehouses can offer localized service for emergency orders.


Over the years, the FK Rod Ends product line has grown to encompass many different industries. From the wilds of Baja Mexico to the touring titans of the USMTS, from mowers to care for your lawn to fitness equipment to groom your body, you’ll find FK Rod Ends.


With almost 10,000 combinations of rod ends and spherical bearings available, you will appreciate the effort goes into filling each order, and we carefully craft our products within our state-of-the-art facility in Southington, Conn., so we are able to say, ‘Yes, it’s in stock’ when you call.
