NHRA Pro Stock Hood Scoop by K&N Produces Less Drag

 
 
Pro Stock is one of the most competitive classes in NHRA Drag Racing. During qualifying, it is common to see each driver's elapsed times (E.T.'s) separated by hundredths or even thousandths of a second. If a driver can find a competitive advantage and make his or her car quicker, it could make or break the next race.

K&N has introduced a new hood scoop (part number 100-8507) which offers drivers that kind of advantage. This ultra strong and light carbon fiber scoop was designed using computational fluid dynamics (CFD).  K&N's new design provides an 18 lb. decrease in drag. The new K&N scoop also produces more even air distribution inside the scoop, which helps naturally aspirated engines run better and produce more power. Less drag and better air distribution can result in quicker E.T.'s and faster speeds from the NHRA Pro Stock category.

K&N's new hood scoop along with sponsorship of the K&N Horsepower Challenge in the NHRA Pro Stock class shows K&N's dedication to the sport. The eight top qualifiers in the 23 race Horsepower Challenge will battle it out for $50,000 at Summit Raceway Park in Norwalk, Ohio in June 2008. The K&N Horsepower Challenge provides a great opportunity for the new K&N hood scoop to establish itself as the best of the best.

The K&N 100-8507 hood scoop is available for purchase from any K&N dealer. In addition to Pro Stock, the scoop can also be used in Super Stock, Super Gas, Top Sportsman, and Pro Mod classes, as well as other racing applications where low drag and even air distribution are important.
