“I came up through traffic and was in third place with only 5 laps to go,” he said. “I passed the second place car with only two laps to go and was up against the leader.” Morseman thought the leader would send him up the track so he broke away early. The leader went into the corner too hard and passed Morseman. “I crossed over and beat him at the line by about three feet,” said the K&N sponsored driver. “It was an awesome win. I extended by point lead and now have four heat wins and four feature wins.”

Morseman said he likes racing on the 3/8 mile high banked dirt oval at Woodhull Raceway. “There is nothing better than going into the corner side by side with another competitor,” he said. “We’re about one foot away from each other and our cars are running hard but we’re not touching each other at all.”

Morseman said he got hooked on racing because his father raced in dirt modified and street stock. “I used to hang out in the shop with my dad and by the time I was 14-years-old I was doing a lot of work including setting up our modified car every week,” said Morseman. “After college I went back into racing and started in the Street Stock Class.”

The 26-year-old Addison, New York resident uses K&N air and oil filters. “K&N products are not only on my race car but are on everything I own from my 4-wheeler to my race car hauler,” said Morseman. “K&N is the ultimate product for performance and protection and K&N has helped put me in the Winner’s Circle over and over.”

Morseman said his goals are to win the track championship in 2009, run in a dirt modified series and switch to asphalt and run in the Busch East Series.

“I plan to only use K&N filters,” said Morseman. “I love the oil filters because of the welded nut. It makes installation and removal a snap. It’s also nice knowing once you put a K&N product on your vehicle, you’re putting on the best part available along with peace of mind.”
