Few things are any more American than drag racing, it's a culture that runs deep to the core of this country. It addresses our wild west, mano-a-mano sensibilities with straight ahead, controlled, explosive aggression. Two cars, two divers, going head-to-head, one winner. And nothing exemplifies this passion any better than grassroots racing.
22-year-old, Brad Burton, won his first Stock Eliminator championship in 2010, driving his 1972 Pontiac Formula Firebird.

"My father Scott Burton and I have been racing as a team since 2005," said Colorado's 22-year-old, Brad Burton. Brad clinched his first Stock Eliminator championship in 2010.

"We do all the maintenance on our race cars and my father does the engine building. My father has been racing Stock Eliminator since 1998, and we began building my car in 2004. My father drives a 1971 Pontiac Formula Firebird and I drive a 1972 Pontiac Formula Firebird. We do however get a lot of support from friends and family, but we do most of the crewing and R&D between the two of us."

Burton racing had their all time best year in 2010, with Brad winning two national events, a divisional, and he was a runner-up at another divisional.
Brad's dad, Scott, has been competing in Stock Eliminator since 1998, he currently races a 1971 Pontiac Formula Firebird.

"Between the two of us we also had numerous class victories and bracket racing victories," added Brad. "I received the 2010 Driver of the Year Award at our Division 5 banquet, and my father received the 2010 Crew Chief of the Year Award.

Campaigning during the 2011 NHRA drag racing season Burton Drag Racing will now have the additional confidence and support that comes from signing with K&N.
Brad says he and his dad do most of the crewing and R&D, and that's just fine, because it's something that they can continue to do together.

"It means a lot to both me and my dad to be a part of the K&N team. K&N is about quality and they have continued to support sportsman racing throughout the years. We attribute much of our success to the quality of products that K&N produces. We have complete trust in all our K&N products, on both of our race cars, as well as on our race rigs."

"For 2011 Burton Racing will go to as many races as possible, and we will continue to strive for perfection. I will try to defend my championship as well as I can. Hopefully 2011 will be as good a year as 2010 was for Burton Racing."
