“I only had a few minutes between each car,” said Erks. “There was a lot of humidity and I had to make sure I had the numbers straight in each car. I couldn’t have done it without my partner Ray Connelly, who helped me with getting cooled down and fueled up all day.”

Erks uses K&N Engineering products. “K&N is the one thing I never have to worry about, especially when I was running 100 plus mph between two cars,” he said. “K&N gave me a flawless performance on both vehicles as usual. It was also great to have a double first place podium day.”

NHRA Northeast division racers head to Atco, New Jersey on June 15-17 for the next NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event.
