During April of 2012, racing fans showed up by the droves for the Triumph Big Kahuna Triple Crown at Road Atlanta, to experience what has been referred to by some as "one of AMA Road Racing's most exciting event weekends in recent memory".
The Triumph Big Kahuna is eager to work with K&N filters, who was named as the official air and oil filter supplier for the series during 2012.
"It was a great weekend," explained M1 Powersports CEO, Cameron Gray. "We had over thirty-thousand(people) show up over the weekend, and were very pleased. We had great racing, a huge vendor area, stunt shows, and a bunch of previous champions. It was a great kick-off for us."
With the first of three events behind them, M1 Powersports and the AMA Pro Racing are anticipating an event unsurpassed at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in the weeks to come. In fact, the Triumph Big Kahuna Triple Crown will roll into town on September 21 and continue to entertain racing fans and their families with a plethora of activities over a three day period, before concluding the event on September 23.
Those putting the production together are anxious for mid-September to roll around, to say the least, as this will be the first time that the AMA Pro Racing circuit has been to the speedway in almost two decades. The event promises to be a great one, and K&N filters will be amongst the enjoyment and activities as they have been named as the official air and oil filter supplier for a race that promises to entertain those with a passion for the sport.
M1 Motorsports, AMA Pro Road Racing, and K&N Filters will then begin gearing up and preparing for the final event of 2012 in New Orleans, Louisiana. In fact, folks can start marking their calendars for October 5-7 and plan to experience an action packed weekend at the NOLA Motorsports Park, a brand new facility that should prove perfect for such an impressive production.
Referring to the array of entertainment scheduled for the Triumph Big Kahuna Triple Crown, Gray said, "We always try to think outside the box, so it will be more than just a race. Our motto is "Come for the party, stay for the race". We've got tons of young, great racers and we've got old statesmen. The racing and the paddock is really strong. We strive to offer the full family experience."
Referring to entertaining the youngsters, he continued, "We have a huge kid's area with slides, dump tanks, jump houses, and kids demo rides. We've got a petting zoo, a bunch of interactive displays, and monster truck rides for the kids and adults.
With one of three races behind them, M1 Powersports and K&N filters are looking forward to the final to races of the Triumph Big Kahuna Triple Crown Series.
While M1 Powersports has obviously gone to the extreme to keep the youngsters occupied, they have also taken steps to ensure the adults have a weekend full of fun and entertainment as well. "We do concerts on the weekends and Friday night fan parties. We have Saturday night movie nights and host fireworks shows. You name it, we do it," ensured Gray. "We try to give the fans much more than racing. We want them to say, hey, I took a weekend out with my kids and it was fantastic."
Just as M1 Powersports is excited about the entire production at all three of the venues chosen for the Triumph Big Kahuna Triple crown, they are also elated with K&N Filters' involvement.
"K&N jumped on board this year," recalled Cameron Gray. "They've been very supportive, and have been open to doing pretty much everything. They're coming out and supporting the events, and giving away some certificates, so we can give some gifts and K&N products away. They've been very good to us," he continued. "K&N products speak for themselves. They're proven winners, so to partner with a company like K&N is huge for us. It puts another stamp on our events that we're dealing with the best. We're dealing with the best promoters and we're dealing with the best companies."
I think that every motorsports fan loves every kind of the sport; if it has a motor in it, they love it. As we go forward, K&N becoming a bigger presence in the motorcycle racing industry is really going to help propel people to come over and see what a great product this is and see sixteen-year-olds going close to two-hundred miles per hour and racing elbow to elbow. As we progress things are just going to get bigger and better. That's just the way K&N is."
Referring to the quality of K&N's products, Gray continued, "When you put a K&N filter on your vehicle, you always notice an increase in performance. M1 Powersports has worked very hard to earn the reputation as one of the best promoters on the industry, and when you talk about air and oil filters, K&N produces the best out there. They're proven winners, and when you come to our events, I think you'll see that also. I think our partnership with K&N is a win-win situation, where both people are going to benefit and show their true performance."
