There’s busy, and then there’s BUSY. This weekend, the CV Products Trackside Program will be BUSY supporting four major auto racing series, including NHRA, NASCAR, ARCA and Tudor. From races in North and South Carolina, to ones in California and Ohio, our Trackside crew will have their hands and trailers full. Here’s where we’ll be:

Series: NHRA

The site, which has hosted an NHRA national event in mid-September since 2008, is famous for its fan amenities and side-by-side dragstrips.

What you need to know: If there is one thing that has been evident through the first six races of 2014 in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, it’s that the future of NASCAR looks bright. At least two Sunoco Rookie of the Year contenders have finished in the top 10 of every race this season. This streak, however, could be threatened tonight in the VFW Sport Clips Help A Hero 200 at Darlington Raceway, a track that is notoriously hard on drivers. For this year’s class of rookie drivers, Darlington stands as the first real challenge on the 2014 schedule as its tight turns and narrow straightaways often see contestants swap paint and collect the famed “Darlington Stripe” by rubbing against the outside wall.

CMS ContainerThis weekend’s race venues include two races at the 1.5-mile Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina on Friday and Saturday, and the Toledo Speedway in Ohio on Sunday. We’ll be parked in the pits at all three events with race equipment for auto racing teams and attendees with pit pass alike. Things start out hot and heavy tomorrow – Friday, May 17 – with the first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race in nearly a month. Come out and see the action. And stop by and check out our beautiful tractor-trailers!

NC LOTTO 200 2008North Carolina Education Lottery 200

Matt Crafton makes his 299th series start at Charlotte on Friday — which is the site of his first series win back in 2008. He’s also the standings leader entering this fifth of a scheduled 22 races. Kyle Busch will be looking for his fifth Charlotte victory in the series.

Not in it for the points? In that case, simply follow the money. That’s Saturday night’s All-Star Race features 22 drivers who will battle for a winner’s payout of more than $1 million without worrying that not finishing in the Top 10 might damage their Sprint Cup chances. The strategy here is pretty simple: Race for the Continue reading

rich_intl_raceway_cOur crew and tractor-trailers full of high performance auto racing parts will be out in force this Friday through Sunday at events in Virginia, Georgia and Indiana. As usual, if you have a pit pass, we invite you to stop by see what we’ve got to offer in the way of gear and garb out of those gigantic 53-foot-long trailers. See you on race day!

ToyotaCare 250

ncr_toyotacare250_logo_4cIn Richmond on Friday, Kyle Busch will attempt the rare feat of winning his fourth consecutive race. So far, Sam Ard is the only driver who’s done it — and that was way back in 1983! Meanwhile, Jeffrey Earnhardt (the son of Kerry Earnhardt and grandson of the late Dale Earnhardt), will pilot the No. 5 JR Motorsports Chevrolet Friday for 10-time NMPA Most Popular driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. — who just happens to be his uncle.

Toyota Owners 400

ncr_toyotaowners_logo_4c_Drivers for Richard Childress Racing have yet to score a top five finish this year, but that could change at RCR-friendly Richmond. Kevin Harvick won at Richmond in a Chevrolet in 2011 — the only non-Toyota victory in the past eight Richmond races. And in last year’s fall Richmond race, both Harvick and Virginia native Jeff Burton scored Top 10 finishes. Meanwhile, Mr. “Win or Go Home,” Kyle Busch, is approaching two impressive laps-led milestones going into Richmond. With three more laps led, he’ll reach 9,000 laps led in the NSCS. And he’s nearing the 25,000 laps-led mark in his NASCAR career. He’s currently at 24,837, needing 163 laps led to reach 25K.

Racing Radios 125 Lap Southern Super Series Late Model Event presented by Schoenfeld Headers

The first Southern Super Series race in Nashville earlier this month was a huge success and Bubba Pollard made history by winning the first Southern Super Series Race event. But a pair of young racers will be out to do damage on Saturday. This will be Ross Kenseth’s first chance at a SSS victory and Daniel Hemric’s first shot at dethroning Pollard from atop the series’ standings. Kenseth is fresh off a stellar 2012 campaign that saw him Continue reading

That’s right. It’s going to be another very busy race weekend for the CV Products on-the-road crews with participation planned in seven events occurring in six states. We’ll be selling racing equipment and apparel at a bunch of these events, including a pair of races at the Kansas Speedway on Saturday and Sunday. For those on the Left Coast, there’s the Le Mans Series in Long Beach, California, where racers take over the city’s streets in a long-standing competition.

So check out the races below and see if you can pencil one or two for this mid-April weekend. Here’s where we’ll be:

This — the fourth race on the 2013 Camping World Truck Series schedule — was won last year by James Buescher who passed Brad Keselowski for the lead with 11 laps remaining and then held it for his first victory in his 76th truck start. He won three more races during the 2012 season to capture the series championship. In the dozen years this race has taken place in Kansas City, there has been a different winner each year.

The odds makers favor Jimmie Johnson for this Sunday’s Sprint Cup Series in Las Vegas. With a first-place win and a second-place finish in two races, Johnson currently leads the Sprint Cup Standing by eight points. The Kobalt Tools 400 race begins at 3:16 p.m. (ET), but fans have several days beforehand to meet their favorite NASCAR drivers at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

CV Products will have a trackside vehicle at every ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards

With a slogan that reads “Everything Racing,” it should come as no surprise that CV Products has received a three-year extension of its Professional Race Services (PRS) contract with the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA). Our president, Jim Zoretich, just announced the agreement, which now runs through the 2015 racing season.

What this accord means to CV Products is that we’ll be continuing our support of ARCA as a Performance Partner sponsor and — as has been the case for the past three years —we’ll continue to serve as the exclusive trackside sales and service performance parts retailer.

In order to extend our involvement with the ARCA Racing Series through 2015, we’ll be expanding our company’s presence trackside, supporting racers across the country.

With our attention solidly focused on the performance and motorsports industry, you can count on CV Products to continue to involve our brands and personnel trackside, meaning you’ll continue to see the Continue reading
