FK Rod Ends Renews Track Title Rights For 2020 Wild West Shootout

FK Rod Ends has renewed its track naming rights for the 2020 Keyser Manufacturing Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts, continuing its headline support of the six-race mid-winter racing extravaganza that takes place at FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway outside Phoenix.

The 3/8-mile oval that hosts the January 11-19, 2020, Super Late Model-headlined racing miniseries continues to be FK Rod Ends Arizona Speedway for a third consecutive year. This position keeps the company’s name front-and-center in all discussion of the ever-growing event.

“Maria [Melillo] and the team at FK Rod Ends are one of the most supportive companies in racing,” Wild West Shootout promoter, Chris Kearns shared. “It’s awesome the way that they give back, and we are honored to have them as part of the Wild West Shootout.”

FK Rod Ends began its relationship with the Wild West Shootout in 2017 by sponsoring the event’s pace truck before stepping up its involvement with the track naming rights in 2018.

Based in Southington, Conn., FK Rod Ends quietly came on 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.

The 2019 edition saw 170 competitors enter at least one event during the course of the mega event.
