The Nascar K&N Pro Series found its way to the K&N Engineering headquarters Friday before the big race on Saturday, July 3rd in Irwindale, California for an employee appreciation day and a meet and greet with some of the Series' top drivers. The event was located in Riverside, California, where several Nascar Teams overtook the K&N facility to show off their rigs, cars and drivers. Also attending the event was King Taco's, providing excellent food throughout the day, NOS energy drinks provided refreshments for the day, and Nascar even brought their tech trailer to show off some of the technology involved when doing pre and post race car inspections.

K&N just recently took the title sponsorship spot for the Nascar Pro Series, a partnership that has immediately benefitted both parties immensely. Being divided into two groups, the Pro Series East and West have become the top developmental series for today's drivers. The East series is now in its 23rd season, and the West is in its 57th season, featuring races all throughout the Western United States. The two series' are separate in points, but both follow the same set of guidelines for points, rules and vehicles. Both the East and West Series' have been the gateway for many of Nascar's biggest names, including Kevin Harvick and Joey Lagano.

The K&N Nascar Pro Series employee appreciation day was a great opportunity for the drivers to show their appreciation for both the great sponsorship K&N has given them, and the great products K&N produces that are being used on just about all of the cars. "We love having K&N as a sponsor; they have great products and a history very similar to Nascars" says Kevin Green, a top writer for Nascar. Luis Martinez Jr., driver of the #6 Kind Taco/Sunrise Ford/ Lucas Oil Ford said "he was honored to have K&N as a sponsor for the series." Luis started as a kid in cart-racing and in a very short period of time has moved up to be a top driver in the Pro Series West division.

Throughout the day, there were several activities for the employees and drivers to enjoy. Nascar brought a remote controlled circle track with several cars for the employees to race on to get a small taste of what the Pro Series drivers do on a much larger scale. Winners of each race had the choice of some great K&N apparel; either a cool K&N fitted hat or several choices of some hot his or hers K&N t-shirts. NOS energy also has some great prizes for their bean bag toss game while providing free samples of their great varieties of energy drinks. King Taco's, another great sponsor for the Nascar Pro Series, was on site providing lunch for everyone attending. Several different types of tacos with all the fixings were available.

The K&N Nascar Pro Series is off to a great start, with some very competitive drivers fighting for the top spot in points. For more information, check out NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and West to follow races, drivers and more.
