ODESSA, MO. (February 8, 2023) – Rod End Supply, a leading provider of rod ends, radius rods, and other specialty racing products, will be the title sponsor of the 2023 I-70 Motorsports Park season opener, the Open Wheel Classic. Rival sanctioning bodies, POWRi WAR Non-Wing Sprints and MWRA Non-Wing Sprints, will compete against each other for the first time at the Rod End Supply Open Wheel Classic on Saturday, April 29, 2023, to earn the trophy, $2,500 victory check, and bragging rights.
“Rod End Supply is excited to announce the partnership with I-70 Motorsports Park and looking forward to the continued development of the facility and the great heritage that I-70 has,” said Robert Douglas, Rod End Supply President. “The facility is beautiful with all the amenities that will draw race fans from near and far. We believe Casey (Shuman) is the right person with a proven track record to bring back and surpass the track’s historical influence in the Midwest where Rod End Supply has called home for thirty-five years in business. We can’t wait for the season to kick off April 29 with the Rod End Supply Open Wheel Classic.”
Non-Wing Sprint Cars are widely considered the traditional sprint cars, dating back to the first sprint cars in the 1930s and 1940s. The inaugural Rod End Supply Open Wheel Classic will pay $2,500 to win and $400 to start the A-Main event. POWRi’s 305 Winged Sprints will also be on-site as the event’s support class competing for $1,200 to win and $200 to start the A-Main event.
“Rod End Supply has been a long-time supporter of drivers, teams, and events and we’re excited to add I-70 Motorsports Park to their list of partners within the racing community,” said Casey Shuman, General Manager at I-70 Motorsports Park. “The staff at Rod End Supply has been servicing the Kansas City racing community and beyond since 1989, so they are well versed in the history behind the facility at I-70 which makes this partnership even more special. I personally have been a Rod End Supply customer for many years, and I’m excited to work alongside them in 2023.”
