K&N Air Filters sponsored NHRA Super Gas driver, Luke Bogacki, has officially claimed his second NHRA National Championship. Bogacki has followed up his 2013 NHRA Super Comp title with a commanding run in NHRA Super Gas taking the crown for 2014. He seemingly clinched the title months ago, with only two other drivers presenting a challenge. Bogacki amassed an incredible 731 points toward the championship, which is the highest points total in the 33 years of NHRA Super Gas history, and broke an 18-year old record.

Luke Bogacki was on a hot streak in 2014 earning back-to-back victories at the NHRA Kansas Nationals and the Division 3 LODRS event in Chicago as well as claiming the win at the 17th annual O’Reilly Auto Parts Route 66 NHRA Nationals presented by Super Start Batteries

With an NHRA Super Gas championship under his belt, Bogacki has joined an elite group of NHRA drag racers. Only 15 drivers have won NHRA championships in multiple categories. “I was on top of the world when we won the Super Comp title last year,” said Bogacki. “Winning a second championship is both equally exciting and hard to believe,” continued Bogacki.

Luke Bogacki drives a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette bodied Charlie Stewart Race Car powered by a 582 cubic inch Huntsville Engine & Performance powerplant. His car runs in the 9.90 second quarter-mile Super Gas index at speeds in excess of 168 MPH. The RacingRV’s backed team relies on K&N products to protect the massive Brodix aluminum block engine. The 1963 Corvette Super Gas car uses K&N Carbon Fiber Hood Scoop 100-8508, fitted with a K&N air filter 28-4210, to keep debris out of his carburetor. K&N Wrench-Off Oil Filter HP-3002, filters the Lucas engine oil to help keep it clean.

“I guess saying that everything fell into place this season is an understatement,” Bogacki laughed. “I drove well for the most part, but I wouldn’t say that was the determining factor. We had a great car, and I’m surrounded by a lot of really smart people that I’ve come to trust and depend on.” Bogacki was quick to credit a long list of marketing partners that are crucial to his success. “Obviously I need to give credit to RacingRV’s, K&N Filters, the major partner on our Super Comp car, and ThisIsBracketRacing.com. Each of these companies took a chance on our team. To deliver for them on and off the race track is a great feeling.”
