AKE Safety Equipment is very proud to be named the official fire extinguisher for Bungart Motorsports for the 2014 Tractor Pulling season. STOP-FYRETM , “The World’s BEST fire extinguisherTM” gives users peace of mind because of its straightforward operation and ease of use.
Bungart Motorsports was established in 2004 by Donnie and Brandon Bungart with a goal to “provide safe and affordable family entertainment to truck and tractor pulling fans, promoters and competitors.” The group participates in over 300 events throughout the tractor pulling season from stock antique tractor pulls to Grand National events throughout the United States. Bungart Motorsports rents and sells sleds used in tractor pulls. Every Bungart Motorsports sled includes the sled, digital scales, laser equipment and professional staff to make sure that the tractor pulling events go above and beyond any expectation. The sleds contain a box filled with weight that is slid forward as the tractor moves along the pulling course increasing the weight on the sled, making it harder for the tractor to move. Bungart Motorsports has many sponsors including: Lucas Oil Products, Speedco Truck Lube and Tires, Rock Star Energy Drinks, and Soy Bio Diesel. They are also a member of the National Tractor Pullers Association (NTPA).
Tractor pulling season will be starting in full force again in a few months. Tractor Pulls are very popular events and can be seen at nearly every county or state fair. However, the sport can be very dangerous. Tractor engines are under extreme pressure during the pulls. The pressure can cause engine fires and damage to the engines. It is a very important to have a fire extinguisher inside the tractor cab at all times. STOP-FYRE fire extinguishers are compact in size, which is perfect to have inside the cab. It is also light weight and easy to use. The non-corrosive chemicals of STOP-FYRE can help put out a fire quicker as well as reduce the costly repairs to the engines, so competitors can easily get back into their competitions.
AKE Safety Equipment is very proud to be a partner with Bongart Motorsports and looks forward to the 2014 Tractor Pulling season!
