K&N Racer Prepares for BIG 10 Series at Cherokee Speedway

Racer Chris Steele finished 4th in the 2006 FASTRAK National Series, but his main competitor in FASTRAK Timbo Mangum, finished 2nd. The two racers battled at the same tracks last year and in 2007 they continue to battle for points at the same venues.

Steele and Mangum faced off in Richburg, South Carolina at the I-77 Speedway. Steele drew pole position in the heat race, but his car was running a little off and he finished in 2nd place.

The crew made a few minor adjustments between the heat and the main event. Steele started in the 3rd spot and quickly moved up to 2nd place. The track began to get some ruts in the middle of the turns and at times Mangum would pull away 4 to 5 car lengths.

“At times I’d be within one length of Timbo but I couldn’t catch him,” said Steele. “Timbo went on to win, I finished second and Johnny Pursley finished off the podium at third place. Our K&N Engineering products worked awesome, as always I really couldn’t picture racing without them.”

Look for the yellow #2 at the I-77 tonight and Cherokee Speedway on Saturday for round #3 of the BIG 10 Series. Steele is hoping to win the race and especially beat his main competitor.
