Speedway Motors will be the Official Parts Supplier at FK Rod Ends Vado Speedway Park during the 17th annual Rio Grande Waste Services Wild West Shootout presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts on Jan. 7-15, 2023.
This marks the third-straight year that the internationally renowned company has held the title. Speedway Motors will supply the track’s part vendor, Rick’s Performance with a wide array of items to service the racer’s needs during the event.
“Speedway Motors first joined us for the 2021 Wild West Shootout, and it was a no-brainer for them since their newest location in Phoenix was just minutes from the track. When I told them that we were relocating to New Mexico for 2022 (due to Arizona Speedway closing), they didn’t blink an eye in confirming their continued support, and now that support continues into 2023,” shares event promoter, Chris Kearns. “The Speedway Motors name is renowned worldwide in pretty well all forms of motorsports, and I greatly appreciate their continued support of our miniseries.”
Speedway Motors was formed in 1952 in Lincoln, Nebraska by “Speedy” Bill Smith. He was inspired to create the company to fill the void of availability for custom and aftermarket parts. Not only did he develop many of the high-quality parts that he sold, but he also ran them on his own racecar. As a result, he quickly learned what would be the best choices for his customers.
Fast forward 70+ years later, and Speedway Motors is still family owned and run with the same family values upon which the company was originally built. They’ve expanded their customer-base to include motorsports enthusiast around the globe. While their home base is still in Nebraska, their newest expansion is located in Phoenix, Arizona.
