Teen Go Kart Racer Wins Championship Enduro Series and Saves Gas with K&N Products
Championship Enduro Series 360 division racer Jessica Brannam found herself with her back against the wall in the last race of the season. The 17-year-old K&N Engineering sponsored racer entered the competition at Blackhawk Farms Raceway in Beloit, Illinois third overall in championship points standings.

At the start of the race things did not go well for the McHenry, Illinois resident. There was a scoring glitch during qualifying and her fastest time was not recorded. That pushed her back from third to thirteenth position on the starting grid.

“There was also a problem with her go-kart,” said Jessica’s father Phil Brannam. “There wasn’t any time to fix it and the only choice was to send her out to race and hope for the best. Jessica drove her heart out.”
Jessica quickly moved her way up to sixth place and had enough points to squeeze out a season championship. “I felt as if I was driving with my brakes on the entire race,” she said. “I’m just happy we won another championship.”
Jessica Brannam and her family use K&N products
on their race vehicles and tow vehicles. "On the track we get great air flow and off the track our tow vehicles get great gas mileage with K&N," said Jessica's mother Diane Brannam. "Saving money on gas is important because we travel to about 50 races a year."
Jessica’s championship resume in 2008 includes a win in the River Valley Kart Series, the Briggs Animal heavy class and the 125 shifter no. 1 class. She has an overall total of 38 championships over eight years. Brannam plans to go to Atlanta for a National Division race in October. In the meantime, she is preparing for her first semester at college.
