“It’s going to be an exciting race,” said Kvapil. “Next to Daytona, it’s one of the most fun racetracks we go to. You can run anywhere, up to the wall or down around the bottom of the track. It’s a rough track it does not have a lot of grip so the trucks slide around a lot. Handling is very important. Drafting will also play an important part in this race since it’s another high-speed track”

In 21 starts this season, Kvapil has four wins (Michigan, Memphis, Nashville, Las Vegas), eight top-five and 12 top-ten finishes. “We didn’t have the run we thought we would in the spring,” said K&N Filters team crew chief Mike Beam. “We struggled with the setup a little bit, but this team has come a long way. We feel like we’ll be a contender this Saturday afternoon. We’ve had a couple of tough finishes here in the last two races, but we’re looking to end the season on a high not with some more wins.”

Kvapil has completed 99.5 percent of the total laps in 2007, and has led 394 of those laps. From Atlanta, Kvapil will head to the SEMA show at Las Vegas Nevada. He will sign autographs in the K&N Booth (22941) Tuesday, October 30 from 10 am to 12 pm. Visitors will also be able to see the K&N Ford F-150.
