Jul 11, 2013

Oliver Racing Parts, a manufacturer of connecting rods based in Grand Rapids, Mich., will sponsor the 65th annual SpeedWeek, Aug. 10-16 at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.

“Our connecting rods are designed for high-performance applications and Bonneville SpeedWeek inspires hundreds of racers to push every bit of performance out of their engines,” said Joseph A. Moch, president and CEO of Oliver Racing Parts, in a press release. “As we celebrate 30 years of business, it’s a natural fit for Oliver to be part of this history-making event.”

Oliver’s presence at the land-speed racing event will include the company’s logo embroidered on 2,500 hats that will be given to participants. Oliver banners also will be placed at the inspection area, near the announcing tower and at the starting lines of all courses.

Hosted by the Southern California Timing Association (SCTA) and Bonneville National Inc. (BNI), SpeedWeek attracts more than 500 racers from around the world.
