"Only a life lived for others is worth living" believed Albert Einstein. The Nobel Prize winner for physics, and NHRA Pro Stock driver Mike Edwards, it appears, have both been inspired by the exact same insight. After Edwards won the 2009 NHRA Pro Stock Championship he's quoted saying "When you win a championship like we did in 2009 that brings more TV attention and more public awareness. That just opened up the door for our other program, which is far more important than anything else we do, and that's the Young Life program."
2009 NHRA Pro Stock Champion Mike Edwards shines a positive light on his national Young Life Program
The Young Life program provides a message of hope to middle school and high school students throughout the United States, and Edwards credits his association with the program for reinvigorating his career. Edwards defines his life by how successful he is with helping others, and being a 30-time race winner allows him to answer that calling.
For the final two stops on the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series Western Swing through Sonoma and Seattle, Edwards will bring together his skills for racing, with his innate talents for spreading positive messages.
1320 Wraps by Fineline provided the stunning graphics, K&N delivers the support, and Mike Edwards will bring the heat to the final two races on NHRA Western Swing.
"It's been great to represent K&N for the past three seasons as a partner with our race team," Edwards said. "Our marketing partnership has grown during that time and for the second year we have put together a program for Sonoma and Seattle to allow K&N to have a major representation on our Pontiac in its home state. As a team, we are proud to be associated with such a reputable company and be a major component in K&N's strategic plan of marketing its products in the drag racing arena."
Edwards will once again dawn a new look for the final two stops on the NHRA race calendar. His Pontiac GXP will be fully clad in an impossible to ignore K&N graphic design, provided by 1320 Wraps by Fineline. Since 1990, Fineline has be creating world-class designs and state-of-the-art graphics, and their work on Edwards's car is nothing short of spectacular. The K&N logo dominates both doors with the company's distinct color stripes running the length of the car.
"K&N continues to support the Pro Stock class in many ways. We feel this is the premier professional category that use our products in competition," commented Steve Williams, vice president at K&N Filters. "We just completed the K&N Horsepower Challenge and are looking forward to the last couple of races of the Western Swing with Mike and his team flying the K&N colors."
"The competition is so close between all the Pro Stock drivers and teams, and that has produced fantastic racing within the factory hot rods the last few years," Williams continued. "Once again, through our Engineering and Marketing programs, we have worked closely with Mike and his entire team on a special design for Sonoma and Seattle, and we are looking forward to being in the winner's circle."
Edwards and his team share the same constructive enthusiasm, and look forward to making good on Williams' encouraging confidence. "We will hit Sonoma and Seattle with the new design and plan to carry K&N to a couple of winner's circles," declared Edwards. "As a team we are excited to do this for K&N and we want to do them proud on the West Coast."
