Dan Fletcher is working on winning his 37th NHRA national event title. He has bragging rights to 36 titles, something only 14 other drivers have accomplished in 50 years of NHRA national events.

“Last year I had a good year,” said Dan. “I finished in the top 5 in Stock Eliminator.” Dan also finished in the top 10 in NHRA Super Stock class. “This year we’re also off to a good start,” he said. “In Pomona I lost in the Stock Eliminator semi-finals but I won Super Stock in Phoenix at the CSK (Checker Schuck’s Kragen) NHRA Nationals.”

“I use K&N filters on our race cars,” said Dan. “The tracks are dirty and a K&N filter offers invaluable protection for a high dollar racing engine.”

The 42-year-old Churchville, New York resident won his first national event in 1994. “There have been ups and downs in a career where my fate is decided by a couple of thousandths of a second,” said Dan. “Fortunately I’ve been able to support my wife and kids without corporate welfare. I quit my day job in 1997.”

The 42-year-old Churchville, New York resident also uses a K&N air filter on his wife’s 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Wagon. “The chrome looks great,” he said.

Dan plans to use a K&N oil filter in is Chevy Camaro all season long. “The filters are very easy to change,” said Dan. ”The nut on the bottom of the filter is the most ingenious invention.”
