Sportsman Class racer Dan Fletcher was more than ready to debut his matching 1969 Chevy Camaro entries. K&N is the primary sponsor for his Chevys in Stock and Super Stock. “The Super Stocker has the most wins in NHRA history,” said Fletcher. “It was my dad’s car and there is a lot of sentimental value attached to it. He purchased it as a race car and it was never on the street. It went from Hugger Orange to white and now it’s back to K&N Orange. I’m honored to have the opportunity to represent K&N Filters and I’m digging the color of my car.”

“Dan has been using K&N products to help him win races for many years,” said Steve Williams, K&N Vice President of Research and Development. “He has shown the ability to win on so many different levels of drag racing that we decided to support his racing efforts.”

Fletcher has raced full time for 12 years and his resume reads like a dream come true for any racer. A few highlights include World Finals Winner, a National Champion in Comp Eliminator. He also has three NHRA World Championships and 56 NHRA National Event Wins.

K&N is also the associate sponsor for the Rick Bruan-owned Chevy Cobalt that Fletcher will drive in 2009. He took it all the way to the 2008 NHRA Lucas Oil Comp Championship. “I’m a one-man-band when it comes to my 1969 Chevys. I take care of my cars, I drive my motor home to and from the tracks and I do the books. In the Cobalt, I just get in and drive for someone else. K&N products have been with me every step of my racing career.”

K&N is a recognized leader in performance air and oil filters along with developing new hood scoop technology. “K&N is a company that develops products for many different forms of filters protecting engines while providing maximum air flow,” said Williams. “We are looking forward to working with Dan and his K&N Stocker and Super-Stocker along with the Competition Eliminator car that he drives. I pick Dan to repeat as a NHRA Lucas Oil Champion in 2009.”

“I’m in Pomona to kick butt, take names and leave with a trophy,” said Fletcher. “I’m ready with my new K&N colors.”
