K&N Air Filters sponsored NHRA Super Gas driver, Luke Bogacki, is the reigning NHRA Super Gas Champion. Bogacki introduced his new Charlie Stewart Race Cars built; Racing RV’s backed ’63 Corvette Roadster at the NHRA Division 3 Lucas Oil Series event in Indianapolis, Indiana. Luke Bogacki’s new Racing RV’s Corvette is a Charlie Stewart Race Cars creation, and features additional backing from K&N Filters, ThisIsBracketRacing.com, and RacerSwag.com. Charlie Stewart Race Cars outfitted their custom ’63 Corvette body with a carbon fiber K&N hood scoop. The eye-catching vinyl wrap was designed and applied by Accelerated Graphics. For the most part, this new combination mirrors the setup that propelled Bogacki to the 2014 title.

“Following the 2014 season, we sold the Corvette that we won the championship with to a young racer from New Mexico named Justin Bromley,” Bogacki explained. “Immediately, I put in an order with Charlie Stewart to build another one. This car is very similar to our old Corvette; it’s the same body style, same wheelbase, and we’re even starting out the season with the same engine combination. Charlie and his staff made a number of small changes, and we’ve got some new components between the frame rails that I’m confident will make this combination even better than our previous one.”

The 1050 horsepower Huntsville Engine & Performance beast pushed Luke Bogacki’s Corvette to the 9.90 index at speeds in excess of 167 miles per hour in Indianapolis, Indiana

Under the K&N carbon fiber hood scoop is the same Huntsville Engine & Performance 582 cubic inch powerplant that was in Luke’s last Corvette. The 1050 horsepower beast pushed the machine to the 9.90 index at speeds in excess of 167 miles per hour last weekend in Indianapolis. “I picked up the bare chassis from Charlie in early April,” explained Bogacki. “This whole car came together in less than a month. I’ve got so many people to thank for making it happen.”

Bogacki entered the NHRA Division 3 Lucas Oil Series event in Indianapolis, Indiana as the defending event champion in Super Gas, and as the leader in the Division 3 JEGS All-Stars standings. Despite promising numbers from his new Corvette, Luke was derailed in the opening round of competition with a -.003 red light. He advanced to the second round of Super Comp behind the wheel of his K&N Filters dragster before falling to Haley Gregory in a double-breakout contest. “Indy certainly didn’t go as well as I would have liked, but overall I think the event was promising for our team,” Bogacki said. “The new Corvette was flawless pretty much from the start. We made some minor adjustments during testing on Thursday, and other than that I hardly turned a wrench on the car all weekend.”

Luke Bogacki and his K&N Filters / Racing RV’s team will attend a bracket event prior to their second stop on the NHRA Division 3 tour in Norwalk, Ohio. The Bogacki Motorsports team will follow that Division 3 event with their first national event appearance of 2015: the NHRA Kansas Nationals May 22-24, 2015 in Topeka, Kansas where Luke will again enter as the defending event champion.
