K&N has a long history of working with NHRA, from the K&N Horsepower Challenge to developing the intake system that the Pro Stock class must use, K&N and NHRA are the perfect example of a symbiotic relationship.

Since its birth, K&N has been making air filters that can handle the stresses of race environments. From racing motorcycles in the dry, dusty Baja California environment to going 200+ mph for over three hours, K&N products are built to last. So it is no surprise that NHRA and K&N have such a long history of working together.

Along with being the official filter of NHRA, K&N was also named the title sponsor of the Route 66 Nationals.

K&N has always had a good relationship with NHRA and that was just taken to the next level. At this weekend’s K&N Filters Route 66 Nationals, the announcement was made that K&N Filters is now the official filter and air intake of NHRA. “This is an exciting time for K&N,” said Tony Yorkman, Senior Sports Marketing Manager for K&N Engineering. “NHRA is an American staple and we are proud to be a part of it.”

“K&N has been a terrific partner of NHRA drag racing for many decades and we are proud to name K&N the Official Filter and Air Intake of the NHRA,” said Brad Gerber, NHRA vice president and chief development officer. “Through announcements like these, K&N continues to reinforce its elite level of commitment and dedication to the greater NHRA racing community.”

This isn’t the first time K&N has worked closely with NHRA. Currently, K&N is the title sponsor of the Horsepower Challenge, which is a race within a race that gives Pro Stock drivers the opportunity to race for a chance to win $50,000. More recently, K&N worked with NHRA, chassis builders, and teams to design, develop, and manufacture the spec’d intake system for the Pro Stock class.

“Sponsoring events and racers gives us the opportunity to prove our hard work,” explained Bert Heck, Performance Kits Manager for K&N Engineering. “The fans of NHRA, who are aligned with our demographics, see that the cars on the track are using our filters and they can feel confident in knowing they are choosing the right product for their vehicles.”
