K&N sponsored driver Cody Swanson knew he had to be prepared. “I was a little bummed about running on the big track,” said Swanson. “I prefer the tight racing on a smaller track. I talked to my driving coach about it and received some last minute advice.”

The advice worked because Swanson finished 2nd in the heat race and won the 25 lap feature.

Swanson started in the 5th position for the heat. “It was a clean race with no real drama,” he said. “I drove to a 2nd place finish in my Goodwine Glass, K&N Filters, Lucas Oil No. 71.”

In the feature race, Swanson started in 5th position. He took the lead coming out of the turn before the first lap was finished. “I couldn’t believe my eyes,” said Swanson. “It was as if they all knew I was coming and just moved out of my way. It must have been because of the additional horsepower from my K&N filters.” In the end Swanson took the checkered flag with a seven car lead.

“It was awesome,” said Swanson. “I have so many people to thank for helping me get here. K&N has provided the air filters, oil filters and breather filters for me since my early days of kart racing. The Kings Speedway track was very dry and dusty. K&N protected my engine and kept all of the dust and dirt out. I would not set a tire on a race track without my K&N filters protecting my engine.”

The Swanson Motorsports team will head back to Kings Speedway on October 3rd for the next USAC Ford Focus race.
