May 15, Thunder Hill Raceway, California
Ken Kurtz, his Firebird USTCC-GT racer repaired after a wheel failure earlier in the season, raced to victory on his new wheel brand. The Weld Racing RT-S wheels, performed flawlessly as Kurt drove to two class victories in two consecutive days during the NASA event at Thunder Hill. “I switched to Weld Racing wheels on advice from Baer Performance Brakes who build the powerful fade free brakes we use on the Firebird”, said Ken, “The RT-S wheels are actually a street performance wheel, but they are lighter than my previous wheels and stringently tested for durability in the in-house test lab at Weld Racing and that sold me.” His two victories indicate that not only does Ken use the best parts on his Firebird; he is a skilled and competitive driver. Weld Racing extends our congratulations to Ken and his team.
