CONCORD, NC (March 10, 2016) – RockAuto of Madison, Wis., has joined American Kart Racing Association (AKRA) as an official partner in support of AKRA’s 2016 kart racing programs and competitors.
Founded in 1999 by a group of automotive engineers, RockAuto is an online car parts store that sells any part your car will ever need at the most reasonable prices on the market through its RockAuto.com website.
From the RockAuto.com website:
RockAuto is an online, family business founded in 1999 by automotive engineers with two goals:
- Liberate information hidden behind the auto parts store counter (by listing all available items and product specifications on RockAuto.com, not just what one store stocks or one counter-person knows)
- Make auto parts affordable (by remaining a strictly online company, we have no store locations, no counter-people and don’t have a lot of money tied up in slow-moving inventory. We pass on those savings with lower prices so cars of all ages can be reliable and fun to drive.)
To kick off the new partnership, RockAuto has provided AKRA with promotional products and apparel that will be given away to racers at next weekend’s (March 18-20) American Sprint Cup Series and Road Race Series opener at Carolina Motorsports Park. RockAuto giveaways will continue throughout the 2016 season at all AKRA racing events and the year-end awards ceremonies.
AKRA welcomes RockAuto to our group as we look forward to our 2016 karting campaigns. The partnership will help support the customers who support AKRA and our new series’!
