Archives For Pro All Star Series

Easter-Bunny-150What with Easter Sunday and all, it’s going to be a light schedule this weekend for those of us at CV Products who make the rounds of racetracks on a regular basis, accompanied by our tractor-trailers filled to the brim with racing gear, accessories and components.

Both events take place this Saturday, including the Pro All Stars Series Easter Bunny 150 at the Hickory Motor Speedway in Hickory, N.C., and the Larry Fleeman Memorial Race at the Gresham Motorsports Park (GMP) in Jefferson, Georgia. It’s the Georgia event that we’re highlighting this week. Gresham Motorsports has designated this event as an annual memorial race to honor those who have passed and were loved by those in the auto racing community. This is the second year; the track has recognized long-time GMP supporter and car owner Larry Fleeman.

This year’s event is a 198-lap race consisting of two segments. What makes this race especially interesting is the 10-minute break at or around lap 100. Drivers who choose not to work on their cars during that break — and that includes tire changes and fuel — get to advance to the front of the field in the order they’re running. Work on your car during the break and you go back out in the order you enter the pits, but behind those who chose not to pit. That should make for some interesting switchie-changies on this half-mile banked oval track.

So pick an event this Saturday and we’ll see you at the races — where we’ll have plenty of race gear for drivers and their race crews: Continue reading

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:

If you have a NASCAR race named after you, you might be a redneck. Comedian Jeff Foxworthy plans to be at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday for his Grit Chips 300 Nationwide Series race. Running 300 laps (159.9 miles), the fourth race on the 2013 Nationwide Series begins at 2 p.m. Eastern Time on the half-mile stadium oval.
