King Engine Bearings Introduces New Race Bearing Line at 2013 PRI Show

December 6, 2013

Designed to withstand the rigors of extreme race conditions, King Engine Bearings will introduce its new King Racing line of engine bearings at the 2013 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show in Indianapolis. Incorporating unique geometric features and an innovative metal structure, the new King Racing XP line of engine bearings includes pMax Black™ tri-metal structure, with 24 percent greater load capacity and 33 percent more fatigue resistance.

Ron Shaver, championship sprint car engine builder, said he instantly noticed the difference between King XP bearings and other brands. “King pMax Black™ is harder than anything I have ever seen and it’s reflected in a superior fatigue resistance and extra load capacity,” explained Shaver, the founder of Shaver Specialties Racing Engines.

King XP bearings with pMax Black™ will be on display at King’s PRI booth 4001 (yellow hall). Attendees are invited to try the pMax Black™ “Feel The Strength” scratch test and win instant prizes.

Other XP breakthrough features that will be introduced at PRI include ElliptiX™, a hybrid oil hole/slot that improves oil ingress, and U-Groove™, a unique oil groove design that increases bearing surface and load capacity.
