Accuride Corporation is participating in the Minimizer Bandit Big Rig Series through its product sponsorship of Kruckeberg Motorsports (KMS), according to an announcement. The KMS team will be using Accuride wheels the remainder of the 2018 Bandit season.
“We’re really excited about this opportunity at KMS,” says team owner Craig Kruckeberg. “Accuride’s wheels are the standard for performance by which others are judged, so having them on our KMS trucks gives us a huge advantage.”
“We’re pleased with this agreement with Kruckeberg Motorsports,” says Accuride President and CEO Rick Dauch. “Bandit events feature intense action, so this gives us a way to test our wheels’ durability in the most extreme environment.”
The first race featuring Accuride wheels on KMS trucks took place June 9th at Hawkeye Downs Speedway in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The next Bandit Big Rig Series event is Saturday, July 7th at Lake Erie Speedway in North East, Pa.
