Default Long life, low maintenance Bearings?

call me lazy but I do not like bearing maintenance cleaning. any suggestions on low maintenance bearings?

The Odonnel bearings are good and pretty fair in price, they last about a gallon before needing cleaning on the wheel bearings but looking for something that lasts longer.

I run my car in REALLY DUSTY and DIRTY track.

NM.. I think AVID revolutions are my answer. cheap.. or the ebay 50 cent ones.

+1 Avid
Good bearings with a large selection. Great customer service as well and fast shipping. I only clean and regrease them once then after that I replace them.
