K&N gives racers an edge with their high flow, washable and reusable performance air filters. When it comes to racing, K&N has the most innovative products designed to protect your engine while giving you an edge. As the USAC IGNITE Midget Racing Series continues to grow in popularity, so has the demand for a more performance oriented reusable air filter and it was out of this demand that that K&N's USAC Ford Focus Midget air filter assembly 55-1040 and high flow air filter RE-0970, were born.

Before the 55-1040 air filter assembly was available the only way to get a performance air filter was through a custom design. The only other option was to use a standard air cleaner or nothing at all. Well, with the release of K&N's RE-0970, all of that has changed.
