Howard Racing is a family affair. Dale’s uncle does all the machine work. Brothers Jan and Josh also help Dale with building their own engines. The family also works on automatic transmissions and cut hay on the family farm when they are not racing.

“We know engines,” said Dale. “We also know K&N makes the best air filters. When we pull our engines down to rebuild them, we don’t have to spend as much money replacing the pistons. Dust does not get into the engines and destroy the cylinder walls.”

Riverside Speedway is built on an old gully beside the Mississippi River. Moisture seeps through from the bottom in the wet season and dust and dirt fly everywhere when it’s dry.

“K&N protects our investment and keeps the dirt out,” said Howard. “K&N also allows us to have power longer and give us a winning edge when we race.” That edge translates into more than a thousand dollars each time Howard Racing conquers the clay racing surface at Riverside Speedway.
