K&N sponsored racer Dan Fletcher was on fire on The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway during the SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals. Fletcher scored his 59th NHRA National event win. “It’s a great day for K&N,” said Fletcher. “My cars outlast and outperform thanks to K&N products.”

K&N was everywhere in the pits, staging area and on the track at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. In Super Gas, Mike Ferderer ran his K&N Filters 2003 Pontiac Grand Am. “My best speeds on the track are because of K&N,” he said. “The car is just fast.”

Sheldon Gecker, also known as King Kong ran his 1957 Chevy with K&N products. “Years ago when we first started racing we had nicknames,” said Gecker. “One evening everyone put their name in a hat and I pulled King Kong. It’s stayed with me for almost thirty years.” Gecker uses K&N air and oil filters. “K&N is amazing, I’ve used the same air filter on two different cars for about 5 years,” he said. “I just wash it and it’s good to go. The oil filters protect my engines.”

Thomas Bayer ran his 1962 Corvette. “K&N products are dependable,” he said. “K&N keeps the debris out of the motors.” The winds were up and the air was cold in Las Vegas. Drivers had to retune and rethink strategies to stay in the winning zone. All of the drivers who use K&N said they did not worry about track debris or dust at the track.

K&N sponsored racer Jason Line is off to his best start ever in the 2009 NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series. “My K&N hood scoop speaks for itself in performance,” said Line. “It gets air into the engine.”

Pro Stock Champion Warren Johnson has 96 career wins. He was in Las Vegas with his K&N Pontiac. “The K&N hood scoop technology is cutting edge,” he said. “We see the results in the performance.”

K&N Vice President of Research and Development Steve Williams finished two rounds away from victory in Super Gas at Las Vegas. “I have a great race car that is consistent,” he said. “But you never know who is going to get the edge by a thousandth of a second.” K&N is Williams’ primary sponsor. This allows him to develop products born out of racing for K&N customers. “It is an honor to work for a performance company that believes in its products and supports both professional and grass roots racing. K&N has a long history of experience, combined with first-hand knowledge that goes into every product sold.”

The 2009 Full Throttle Drag Racing Series continues April 16-19 in Atlanta, Georgia.
