KEARNEY, MO – Mar. 22, 2019 – It wasn’t until post-race that Race Star Wheels owner, L.B. Davis, found out that Bo Butner had drove his way into the Winner’s Circle with Race Star’s new Pro-Forged rear wheels on his KB Racing powered Pro Stock car. “It was certainly an uplifting Monday when we heard that Bo crossed the finish line in the finals while outfitted with our rear wheels,” said Davis. Following Jason Line’s event win on Race Star Wheels last season, it is the second NHRA national event where a Pro Stock reaches the Winner’s Circle utilizing a Race Star set-up. In addition, Butner ran his quickest ET of the weekend, 6.505, on Race Star’s wheels.
Overall, the Gatornationals weekend yielded results that continue to demonstrate the performance capabilities of Race Star’s wheels. Greg Anderson, running a full Race Star Pro-Forged set-up, achieved both the top speed, 213.16 mph, and low ET, 6.504, in eliminations. Anderson also ran top speed overall in the class with a 213.40 mph during qualifying.
As Race Star’s track presence and momentum continues to build, Davis is excited for the opportunities and possibilities. “We want people to see what they can do and achieve with our product,” said Davis. “Seeing our wheels contribute to another Pro Stock’s win reinforces that if people give a product a chance, a product that we’ve worked hard to develop and really believe in, that they will discover what it can do for them and their racing.”
