FK Rod Ends Acquires Track Naming Rights for Wild Wing Shootoutadmin
QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. (November 3, 2020) — Officials with the Schaeffer’s Oil Wild Wing Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts recently revealed that FK Rod Ends has signed on as the track title sponsor for the new miniseries at Arizona Speedway.
The track will be tabbed FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway throughout the January 22-24 extravaganza. The Connecticut-based company’s sponsorship comes as an expansion of its four-year running involvement with the Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout.
“Starting a new event and lining up the accompanying marketing partners can be a challenging task but Maria (Melillo) and folks at FK Rod Ends were first in line to be a part of the Wild Wing Shootout,” event co-promoter Chris Kearns said. “FK Rod Ends has been staunch supporters of the Wild West Shootout the past few years, and to also have their belief and support for the Wild Wing Shootout truly means a lot.”
Based in Southington, Conn., FK Rod Ends quietly came onto the motorsport’s scene three decades ago. Since then the part’s manufacturer has become prominent throughout all realms of the sport. The firm offers almost 10,000 combinations of rod ends and spherical bearings, which are crafted at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
