K&N Funny Car in Spotlight at NHRA AC Delco Gatornationals
Jeff Arend has been the driver of the blue Checker, Schuck’s Kragen Funny Car for only two races and now he will shift cars for a special edition body at the AC Delco Gatornationals.

“It’s a huge honor for me to be a part of the Worsham Team,” said Arend. “To also have the chance to drive the K&N Filters car, well that’s just above and beyond what you could hope for. Our sport lives and breathes on the support of the fans and the sponsors, so having the opportunity to give K&N a chance to shine on one of the biggest stages of the year is awesome, and doing it in Gainesville is almost perfect.”
New career highlights may be on the horizon for the 12-year-veteran. He demolished his all-time best numbers in terms of estimated time and speed at Pomona, and goes into Gainesville holding onto 7th place on the POWERade points sheet. Arend has already earned round wins against Jack Beckman and Ron Capps, with the Capps win (at Pomona).
“There’s no getting around the fact that we had a lot of eyes on us at Pomona and Phoenix,” said Arend. “The pressure was about as intense as I’ve ever felt. To me, and all the guys on the team it’s about showing what we’re fully capable of delivering all year. Going into the semi-final in Pomona was a great accomplishment, but you haven’t seen the best of this team yet.”
Putting the K&N car in the winner’s circle is in the realm of possibility, according to Team Manger Bob Wilber. “Every lap is going to be difficult, all season long,” he said. “There is every reason to believe Jeff will give K&N and our complete family of sponsors a big weekend. On one of his favorite tracks, in the best car he has ever driven, Jeff is already visualizing the moment he pops out of his car, fists raised in celebration after the final round on Sunday. Then, on national television, he’d have the chance to mention his two favorite letters, K&N.”
