Rio Vista, CA – April 9, 2012…The Cancen Oil King of the West Sprint Car Series, in association with the good people at Kaeding Performance, are proud to announce a fully-loaded contingency program for the tour this season.

The Kaeding Performance team has rounded up a number of sprint car companies to give the King of the West Series an extensive list of contingency awards to hand out each week and at the awards banquet.

“We definitely wanted to put something together so the teams that support KWS events will have the opportunity to earn contingency awards that will be beneficial to them,” said Brian Matherly. “The contingency program should be a great thing for all the teams and the upcoming season looks to be a pretty strong one.”

Companies taking part in the contingency program thus far and awarding nightly certificates, along with awards at the championship banquet will include Pro Shocks, KSE Racing Products, Red Devil, Weld Racing, Brown & Miller Racing Solutions, Butler Built Performance, Kaeding Performance, MAXIM, FK Rod Ends, Winters, Astro Titanium, Ben Cook Racing Products, Kwik Change, Factory Kahne Shocks, MPD Racing Products, Schoenfeld Headers, Racing Optics, SCI, Vortex, Conroy Pneu Control and Dirt Solution.

To take part in the contingency program competitors must display the Kaeding Performance decal on their car, along with each individual company’s decal that you wish to have a chance at winning. Decal packages will be available at the Kaeding Performance trailer and the KWS command center.

“We’re excited about partnering with Kaeding Performance on the contingency program this season,” said KWS Operations Manager George Hague. “Brian, BF and Brent have put together a great package for the series and the teams will certainly benefit from it.”

The Kaeding family has had a long and successful history in both racing and business in California and over the years they combined the two into a successful racing business. The property where the business is located has been in the family since the early 1940’s.

The family is represented by three generations of champions including Howard, Brent, Tim and Bud. Kaeding Performance relies on this racing experience to offer their customers the latest in sprint car technology, set-up advice and confidence in the parts they sell.
