Abbate & GRR Racing Partners with KING Bearings
May 5th, 2016 – Four races remain in the 2016 SCCA US Majors Tour Western Conference Division and the GRR Racing team continues to make strides in their progress for each race weekend, and they have even begun to prepare for 2017. “This season we were fortunate to partner with Edelbrock USA and their E-Force Supercharger System which is especially made for the FA20 platform. With that, we knew we would be competitive by simply adding the kit to our existing set up, although, there is still room for more power in the STU trim”, driver Michele Abbate shares. “Our efforts are to always strive to be better in all the areas we can control, and with that we saw the potential to strengthen our engine while maximizing power where possible”, Anthony Philleo added.
With that, the team is excited to announce their partnership with KING Racing Bearings (www.kingbearings.com), one of the most reputable engine bearing companies founded in 1960 and continue to supply the highest quality bearings available in the marketplace. You can find KING Bearings in anything from Monster Jam trucks, to Global Rally Cross race cars.
Recently, KING Bearings released their new FA20 race bearings are designed with all of King’s racing line features including the pMax Black™ unique tri-metal structure, allowing 24% greater load capacity than any other race bearing available. By incorporating exclusive King features like Elliptix™ oil ingress and 360 degree oil grooves, oil starvation is all but eliminated.
