K&N Filters No.6 Ford F-150 Continues to Race in NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series
Travis Kvapil went to Martinsville Speedway in the No 6. K&N Engineering Ford F-150 for his 100th Craftsman Truck Series race at one of his favorite tracks.

In his best qualifying effort of the 2007 season, Kvapil started second. However, he was unable to keep his track position. He started at the outside and it was a difficult place to be at the drop of the green flag. Kvapil dropped back into 4th position before he was able to get to the inside of the track.

In the early part of the race, Kvapil told the K&N crew his truck was a little tight. Crew chief Mike Beam planned a one-stop strategy around lap 60 and Kvapil adjusted his line to accommodate the problem. At lap 73 the caution flag flew for a wreck and Kvapil hit pit road for tires, fuel and a wedge adjustment.
Kvapil restarted in eighth position but his F-150 continued to have problems. At lap 191, the K&N Ford went back to pit row for more adjustments. Kvapil restarted in the 15th position with 50 or so laps remaining. He was unable to regain his position and took a 14th place finish.
“We fought tight all day,” said Kvapil. “We pitted that second time because we had nothing to lose. It was a gamble and it didn’t pay off but we had to try something. When we went back out to the track we couldn’t get position. We hoped that we’d be a contender at the end, but we got ourselves in traffic and we couldn’t do anything to get back to the front. We’re disappointed with our finish.”
Kvapil and the No.6 K&N Engineering Team are ninth in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series point standing, 216 points out of the lead.
“Travis will be running the K&N Filters No. 6 Truck at Kansas Speedway on April 28,” said Rory Connellan of Roush Racing. “It will be good to be back on a track that is 1 ½ miles. A good run there can move us up a couple of spots. It’s still early enough in the season to turn around. We’re not out of this series by any means.”
