Williams raced what he referred to as an abbreviated racing schedule in 2006. For 2007 he has a new car and will go after a championship
Steve Williams on his plans for the New Year:
K&N's V.P. of Product Development, Steve Williams
“Ben Worthy built my new car and I’m very happy with it. This is the third one he built for me and every one of them has been different. This one has the exact dimensions that I wanted. It has good visibility; at 185-190 mph you’ve got to have good visibility, and it’s stable. Worthy builds quality race cars.
I’m going to take a shot at the World Championship in 2007. That’s the one thing I haven’t done. I’ve been working on my schedule and my first race will be the Winternationals. I usually run six races the first eight weeks of the year. I pick it up back in the middle of the summer with six more races and plan to go to Indy. At the end of the year I’ll wrap it up with a few more races.
K&N provides me with the opportunity and support equipment I need. We are working on a new hood scoop, which we will debut in 2007. What we use on my car is in a constant state of evolution and we are always trying to improve our products.
I work on my cars in the late evenings or on the weekends, also a lot of times at the race tracks. If I start at Pomona, and go to Phoenix I have to do maintenance by the third race. Sometimes I’ll pull the whole car apart at the track and turn a negative into a positive if I don’t have a good weekend racing.
Out of 23 national events in 2006, there were at least ten events in Super Comp in which the racers had K&N Intake Scoops, K&N Air Filters or K&N Oil Filters. In the Sportsman Class on the semi-professional side of NHRA racing there are thousands of people that race on a regular bases. It’s important for K&N to interact with as many of those people as we can and let them know what we’re working on and how it will benefit them.”
K&N Engineering has a long history of experience, combined with first-hand knowledge that goes into every product sold. K&N Products are designed by people whose way of life, inside and outside of K&N is racing.
