DAYTON, OH – December 3, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – NASCAR Champion Kurt Busch will display his 2018 Ford F-150 Supercab pickup built by ZB Southern Ground in the Ford Performance booth #1925 at the 2018 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Show, taking place in Indianapolis, Indiana, from Dec. 6 to Dec. 8. Busch selected Forgeline FF3 wheels on his personal Ford F-150 truck. The truck debuted at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show where Busch performed drifting demonstrations the truck at the Ford Performance driving area located in front of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Kurt Busch, Inc., a high-performance development shop located in Mooresville, North Carolina, chose Forgeline wheels for the 1,000 hp F-150 truck which has been specifically designed for drifting. Bryce Spence, shop foreman, specified the Forgeline brand because the build required an American-made wheel with a proven history of performance which could withstand the forces a wheel is subjected to in these demanding conditions. While drifting, wheels are subjected to high G-forces, and Forgeline wheels are proven to be able to remain strong and robust during racing and drifting.
Forgeline wheels are produced to exacting standards at the company’s Dayton, Ohio manufacturing facility. The FF3T wheels are three-piece wheels manufactured from fully-forged 6061-T6 aluminum centers. The 22×12 Forgeline wheels feature Pearl Gray centers with Black Pearl outers and a five spoke design with a flat face profile, spokes that taper to a narrower width at the rim register, chamfered edges and a small engraved center cap.
Kurt Busch’s Ford F-150 drift truck was designed and styled by ZB Southern Ground, a shop in Peachtree City, Georgia. In January 2019, the Ford F-150 drift truck will be auctioned off at Barrett Jackson Scottsdale with proceeds benefiting Camp Southern Ground located in Georgia.
