Weld Racing Announces the Sportsman Drag Racing Wheel

Sportsman Drag-black with black Bead-Loc

Kansas City, U.S.A. April 22, 2011— Weld Racing is proud to introduce the new Sportsman Drag line of forged aluminum drive wheels for drag racing. Intended specifically to meet the needs of the Sportsman racer, the Sportsman Drag wheel will be available as a limited offering of our most popular sizes, features, and options. The Sportsman Drag provides a competitively-priced wheel that includes many of the high line features of the Weld Racing’s dominant Pro Series resulting in a great value. Drawing from the styling cues of Weld Racing’s “Alumastar” professional drag racing design, the Sportsman Drag wheel will be available with a polished or machined black anodized center, in 15”x 16” and 16”x 16” sizes, with or without double Bead-Locs™. The Sportsman Drag is available in the popular 5×4.5” and 5×4.75” bolt circles at back spaces of 4” or 5”. The hot forged billet center is welded with a proprietary process to the cold forged inner and outer rim shells, eliminating the bolts used in the professional series Weld Racing drag racing wheels. This change reduces the cost so important to a sportsman racer while making the wheel easier to clean, polish, and detail. The Sportsman Drag wheels will be available with gold, black or polished conventional Bead-loc rings. In addition, the 15” double Bead-Loc wheels will be available with conventional rings, or DBMT rings for tires with the “curb guard” sidewall or bead bundles measuring less than 0.660” in width. Forged from primary aluminum alloys in the U.S.A., as are all Weld Racing wheels, Sportsman Drag wheels are lighter, stronger, and truer than other brands. The quality alloys in the wheels polish to a brilliant shine and resist oxidation better than other alloys. Since 1967 Weld Racing has built technologically-superior wheels in the U.S.A. Today, Weld Racing L.L.C. continues the tradition of building racing and high-performance wheels in the heart of the U.S., using 21st century technology to create innovative new wheels while giving the customer top quality, true craftsmanship, and excellent customer service.
