Baehr also set up a display for K&N and distributed brochures, decals and other literature. K&N also raffled air intake systems, air filters and oil filters at the track and gave away Best Losing Package awards for the $30,000 to win shootout on Saturday.

“It’s been a good couple of racing weeks for me,” said Baehr. “It was great to win $10,000 on Friday and I was really close to taking the $30,000 on Saturday. I was dead even with my competition on the tree but I gave the win up at the back door on the finish line.”

Baehr has had his 1984 Camaro with its 383 small block Chevy engine since he was 15-years-old. “I bought it as a street car,” he said. “I transformed it into the racing machine it is today. I also put K&N oil filters on it. K&N protects my engine from track debris. The Camaro is my baby.”

Bogacki had one of the biggest paydays in his career in the opening $10,000 to win event. Bogacki also recently had a $5,000 payday at the Ohio Crankshaft No Box Nationals and at George Howard’s TCI Twins Series event.

Bogacki earned his victory at the World Footbrake Challenge with great starting lines throughout the final five rounds of eliminations. “This is a huge victory to me,” said Bogacki. “The World Footbrake Challenge is as big a race as there is on the sportsman racing landscape. Winning here is like winning a huge national event.”

Bogacki is planning a summer tour that will include the IHRA Northern Nationals in Martin, Missouri, the World Super Pro Challenge in Stanton, Michigan and an NHRA National event in Brainerd, Minnesota.

Bogacki uses K&N air filters. “K&N helped my engine perform the way it should,” he said. “I can also count on K&N for additional power and great filtration.”
