July 03, 2018


(Blooming Prairie MN July 3, 2018) – Accuride Corporation is throwing its hat into the Minimizer Bandit Big Rig Series through its product sponsorship of Kruckeberg Motorsports.

The Evansville, Indiana-based manufacturer of commercial vehicle wheels and wheel end components is sponsoring the Kruckeberg Motorsports Team, which will roll on Accuride wheels the remainder of the 2018 Bandit season.

"We're really excited about this opportunity at KMS," team owner and Bandit Craig Kruckeberg said. "Accuride's wheels are the standard for performance by which others are judged, so having them on our KMS trucks gives us a huge advantage."

"We're pleased with this agreement with Kruckeberg Motorsports," Accuride President and CEO Rick Dauch said. "Bandit events feature intense action, so this gives us a way to test our wheels' durability in the most extreme environment."

The first race featuring Accuride wheels on KMS trucks took place Saturday, June 9th at Hawkeye Downs Speedway in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
