FBR Shop 5.60 at The Rock AND Maryland in 2012

As the eighth mile 5.60 index class has grown at Rockingham Dragway, so has the demand from racers to see the class expand to Maryland International Raceway also, and now Marion Ford’s FBR Shop has helped make that happen. Ford has been a loyal supporter of the MIRock Superbike Series from the beginning and has decided to sponsor 5.60 as a points class at all 8 MIRock events in 2012.

"FBR Shop is behind sportsman racers and will continue to help provide classes for them in the MIRock Series,” said Ford. “FBR Shop has been a part of the series for more than a decade and plan to be here for a very long time. When Trac King Clutches/APE came in to sponsor Top Sportsman, that gave us the opportunity to sponsor 5.60 and bring it to the entire series.”

“We are excited to have the 5.60 racers at MIR!” said series and MIR promoter Jason Miller. “Many of our ET racers will now have another class that they can enter when they travel to Maryland and race for another purse. That is what many racers are looking for these days.”
