DENVER, N.C. – Van-K Wheels has signed on to sponsor the Daytona Dirt World Championships Fast Time Qualifying rounds this December 29 and 30 at the Daytona International Speedway Flat Track.

Van-K, located in Denver, N.C., has posted eight sets of Pro-MAXX wheels for the event. Pro-MAXX is Van-K’s new premiere line of machined wheels designed for the dirt oval market. They are the ultimate in performance and have the coolest look.

One set will be awarded to the Van-K Wheels Fast Time winner in each of the seven Pro classes, and the eighth set will go to the quick-time setter in Saturday’s Junior 3 Box Stock class.

“With the large fields we’re anticipating at this year’s Dirt World Championships, we felt it was important the fast time winners get something in return. The Pro classes will be some of the most competitive divisions, so each fast time winner in those seven classes will win a set of Van-K Wheels. We thank Brian Bass from Van-K for stepping up to the plate and supporting this great event with their fine line of kart wheels.” WKA’s Keith Shampine stated.

A set of Van-K wheels will go to the Fast Time winner in Pro Junior 1, Pro Junior 2, Pro Junior 3 Animal, Pro Junior Clone, Pro Animal, Pro Champ, Pro Clone and Junior 3 Box Stock.

“With the prestige of WKA’s Daytona KartWeek and the strong growth of the Dirt World Championships, we felt that this was a great event to showcase our newest kart wheels,” said Brian Bass, president of Van-K Wheels. “And these wheels are finished with our new flat black anodized finish.”

Van-K Wheels has been involved with karting since the 1980’s. From dirt ovals to quarter midgets, Van-K Wheels are sold through a dedicated dealer network nationwide.
