Story By: BOBBY CHALMERS / PETER BRITTEN RACING – WEEDSPORT, NY – Peter Britten is a loyal guy. He does everything he can to support those who support him. So when he and his new team hit the track in Florida at the DIRTcar Nationals, he’ll be displaying a loyal partner to himself and the Troyer Race Cars brand on his quarter panels…FK Rod Ends.
Britten, who announced in January that he was going on his own for 2019 as an owner / driver, has been working around the clock to prepare for the new season. With that comes the task of developing relationships with marketing partners who will help his team succeed.
While he hasn’t been able to lock down a major sponsor for his team just yet, one company that has been key to his success and that of Troyer was FK Rod Ends, and Britten decided to put them in the prime spot on his car for Florida as a way to say thanks.
“I love seeing how much they do to support Troyer and the motorsports community in such a big way,” Britten said. “The relationship between FK Rod Ends and Troyer has been a long and successful one. For many years, every car coming out of the Troyer factory sports FK Rod End hardware ready for battle. The fact that we didn’t have a major sponsor to display for the DIRTcar Nationals, I felt this was a perfect opportunity to give them some recognition for all the support they’ve given us.”
For FK Rod Ends, it’s a partnership that they have enjoyed for many years and look forward to for years to come.
“We are excited to continue our program with Troyer Race Cars and Peter Britten Racing,” Maria Melillo, Manager of FK Rod Ends said. “We’re proud to be a part of both and look forward to helping move things ahead this season and for many years to come.”
2019 is a season of change for Britten as he is going back on his own this year, but it’s relationships like the one he has with FK that will help to get him to the front…and that all starts at the DIRTcar Nationals. The number 21A with FK Rod Ends emblazoned on the sides will hit Volusia Speedway Park in Barbersville, FL for five straight evenings starting Tuesday night.
