This is Ballard’s second sportsman victory in the XPLOD Sport Compact Class. “The K&N Filters Chevy Cobalt ran flawlessly all weekend,” said Ballard. “A large part of this is because of the K&N Oil and Air Filters we use on the car.”

XPLOD is also a new sportsman category for the veteran racer. “Long before I was sponsored by K&N Engineering, I used K&N Products,” he said. “The quality of the products and the reputation of K&N are second to none.”

Ballard is focused on making a run towards the XPLOD championship. “I’m going to try my best to put the K&N Filters Chevy Cobalt in the winner’s circle again for the whole CSI Drag Racing Team,” he said.

Ballard’s next race with the XPLOD Series is scheduled in June.
