Cancer Survivor Teams Up With WELD to Race Against NASCAR Superstars

Kansas City, Mo. – Kyle Robinson, a 16-year old cancer survivor from central Iowa, will take part in the third-annual WELD Racing Go-Kart Spectacular at the 2015 FVP Knoxville (Iowa) Nationals August 12, 2015. As a sponsor of the event, WELD earned two seats in the race and elected to provide one of the “seats” in the event to Robinson. The other WELD seat will be auctioned off at the event to help support the cause.

Robinson was diagnosed in March 2000 with a Wilms tumor in his kidney. He has been cancer free for 12 years and is a leader in training at Camp Heart Connection, a camp for children with cancer and their siblings. The camp is sponsored by Des Moines-based Children’s Cancer Connection, a charity established in 1988 to provide programs and services to children battling childhood cancer.

DEI Introduces Fuel Injector Reflective Heat Covers

Avon Lake, Ohio…In hot temps, both performance and factory fuel injectors can be at risk of vapor lock or heat soak causing a rough idle, slow starting or other potential serious engine problems.

Constructed of high-temperature rated glass fiber material bonded to a heat reflective aluminized material, DEI’s Fuel Injector Heat Covers can be used on most any engine configuration utilizing stock or aftermarket fuel injectors. Cooler fuel injectors will perform more efficiently, offering a more consistent throttle response.

Installation is a breeze as the injectors do not have to be removed. The covers are made with a split design allowing them to wrap around each individual injector and are secured with a sewn-in hook and loop fastening edge.
