1955 Chevy is Super Star at 37th Annual K&N Filters NHRA SuperNationals
One of the most popular cars at the 37th annual K&N Filters SuperNationals presented by Strauss Discount Auto was the K&N Engineering 1955 Chevrolet.
The crowd watched the classic car in the pre-race parade at Englishtown where K&N Chairman of the Board Jerry Mall was the Grand Marshall. The ’55 Chevy 210 was restored in K&N’s garage in Riverside, California. The 383 engine puts out 425 horsepower and it will hit speeds up to 100 plus mph without any problems.
Englishtown Pre-Race Parade
At Nitro Alley, the K&N Truck and Trailer was packed with fans who wanted to meet Funny Car Drivers Del Worsham and Phil Burkart, along with Top Fuel Dragster Morgan Lucas and Super Comp Racer Lindsey Wood. They also wanted to see the ’55 Chevy.
“The crowd was shoulder to shoulder at times,” said K&N Engineering Truck and Trailer Specialist Tony Yorkman. “On Saturday we had our biggest group. People were interacting with the racers by taking photographs, getting autographs and asking lots of questions.”
The K&N crew would set up around 5:30 a.m. and go until about 7 p.m. “The 55 Chevy was the best attention getter K&N has ever put on display, and we have had a lot of different cars on display,” said Yorkman. “When people stopped coming to our counter we would close down, but there was always a large group around the ’55. As we were putting the cover on it people were still ducking their heads under the cover to see it.”
Enthusiasts told Yorkman they appreciated the K&N products. “As the sponsor, our signs we’re everywhere,” he said. “Everyone knew K&N was there and we felt like the cool kids on the block.”
