Pro Stock drivers earn 2008 K&N Horsepower Challenge points throughout the year. The winner will earn $50,000 at the Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio. The runner-up will earn $10,000 and two semifinalists will earn $3,000. The four first-round finishes will receive $2,500 each.
K&N has developed racing filters for every form of racing in the world. Handmade in the USA since 1969, K&N Air Filters are designed to increase horsepower and acceleration. “This class is about the delivery of air flow,” said K&N Vice President Steve Williams. “K&N makes the World’s Best Air Filter and we have been working very hard to create new technology for the NHRA Pro Stock category. Now that we have both a new intake scoop and filter combination available for the world’s fastest hot rods, we decided to put up the money to see who is really the fastest.”
K&N is in a class of its own when it comes to hood scoops. The unique design of the scoop is that it’s also coupled with the use of the K&N Air Filters. K&N is proving with its patented design that K&N Air Filters actually increase horsepower on race cars.
The overall purse of the K&N Horsepower Challenge is $145,000. In addition to the $76,000 K&N Horsepower Challenge, K&N will also award $69,000 in qualifying bonuses to quick Pro Stock qualifiers throughout the K&N Horsepower Challenge series. Low qualifiers earn $3,000 at each of the 23 events in the Challenge series.
“The entire K&N Family is very proud to be working with the NHRA, Bill Bader and the entire Pro Stock community to make the 2008 K&N Horsepower Challenge something special,” said Williams. “We are also very excited to have this event take place at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park. It is an awesome facility and should produce world-record performances.”
On June 28 - July 1 Greg Anderson was top qualifier in the K&N Horsepower Challenge at the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio. On July 6 - July 8 Jeg Coughlin was top qualifier at the O'Reilly NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol, Tennessee.
