(Pulaski, PA)…Although mid-season is quickly approaching, the Sween ey Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Series continues to add 2013 Major Contingency Sponsors as FK Rod Ends joins the fold as another respected and nationally recognized company.

As part of their “Major Contingency” sponsorship package, FK Rod Ends will award four complete sets of FK Rod Ends ($2,000 value) at “Manufacturers Night” to be held at Pittsburgh’s PA Motor Speedway on Saturday, August 31. Not only will the event include a $1,500 to-win Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC Touring Series race, but also award over $30,000 in product to the competing RUSH racers!

“FK Rod Ends is another great addition that we are honored to have part of our Series and Manufacturers Night,” stated RUSH Co-Director Vicki Emig. “FK is a national company and are very pro-active in promoting their company and are big supporters of racing as a whole. The four sets of rod ends will be a great prize that four lucky drivers will be able to receive on August 31. I cannot thank FK Rod End representative Maria Melillo enough for her support of our Series.”

F.K. Bearings came onto the scene quietly over 30 years ago. They did not make a huge splash, but quickly won the customers over 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. To further assure timely delivery, F.K. set up two regional warehouses. Filled to the brim with inventory, these warehouses can offer localized service for emergency orders.

Over the years the F.K. Bearings product line has grown to encompass many different industries. From the wilds of Baja Mexico, to the “good old boys” of NASCAR….from mowers to care for your lawn, to fitness equipment to groom your body, you’ll find F.K. Rod Ends! Check out their website at
