“I like the metallic blue color with blue flakes,” said Maldonado. “I also like my K&N air intake system and my K&N oil filter. I have to admit the first thing that attracted me to K&N was the blue intake kit, then what attracted me more was the performance I got with K&N.” Maldonado took his ride to Irwindale Speedway near Los Angeles, California for a test run and liked its power. He said he has no plans to race it.
