At least 180,000 people attend the Grand Prix with around 25,000 stopping at the K&N booth during the three day event. The Speed Zone Girls signed autographs along with racers Vaugh Gitten Jr. and Terry Borcheller to name a few.

Borcheller runs our stock air filter with Brian Nott’s new Blackforest Racing Ford Mustang. He was sixth, only 17 seconds away from the win at the Grand-Am Cup Series at Daytona. The 39-year-old racer said he uses K&N because of the performance gain and fuel economy. Borcheller has 57 Professional Race wins in 7 series at 20 tracks. K&N has been part of my racing life since I saw the K&N sticker for the first time when I was 5-years-old, said Brocheller.

Spike TV Power Block show host Courtney Hansen was also signing autographs at the K&N booth in Long Beach. “Courtney is an avid K&N user,” said K&N Engineering, Inc. Truck and Trailer Specialist Tony Yorkman. “She puts our products in her 2004 Ford Thunderbird.”

The K&N truck and trailer can be seen at races and events throughout the United States from February through November. Everyone who visits and opts to fill out a survey has the opportunity to win a K&N Intake System. “We gave away 6 free K&N Intake Systems at Long Beach,” said Yorkman. “People know the K&N name.” K&N Intakes are engineered to work within your vehicle’s specifications while maximizing power and allowing air to flow with little restriction.

The K&N Crew answered a lot of questions about the benefits of our reusable filters. A K&N filter can perform for up to 100,000 miles before service is required. K&N is the premier manufacturer of filtration products for nearly every vehicle on and off the road. There is also a high-tech interactive system in our booth that shows how K&N filters work.

In May the K&N 18-wheeler will be parked at the NHRA Sport Compact Nationals in Englishtown, New Jersey and the IRL Indy 500 in Indianapolis Indiana.
