This promises to be a busy week on the auto racing circuit, what with three events at the Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee, another pair in Florida and a Pro All Stars Series (PASS) race in South Carolina on the agenda.

What’s especially exciting this week are the races scheduled at Bristol Motor Speedway, where the short, half-mile track is guaranteed to make for some spectacular spectator opportunities — lots of fender benders, hurt feelings, and drama galore. It’s better than the soaps on TV!

And if you find yourself in the pits or garages of any of these races, pay close attention to the gear the crews are attaching to these high-performance auto-racing machines. That’s right. Many of those CV parts and accessories that you rely on for your amateur race pursuits are standard on these racecars.

With that in mind, we hope you’ll stop by and visit our reps at one of these racetracks this weekend. Here’s where you’ll find us:
