Gary drives a 1986 Corvette with a 400 Chevrolet small block 400 cubic inch engine. “K&N filters (HP-3002) are the only filters I’ve ever had on my Corvette,” said Gary. “The sticky tires on drag cars pick up a lot of pebbles and dirt, and K&N performance filters really work and keep my motor clean.”
In Arizona, Gary won Division 7 in Super Street in the Lucas Oil Drag Series. “The K&N filter has a nut on the bottom and all I need is my crescent wrench,” said Thompson. “When I fire up the car I don’t have to worry about a bursting container with this K&N filter.”
Gary’s wife Nancy Thompson races a 2004 Corvette with a K&N Air Intake System. “Nancy has picked up 3 tenths of a second in ET Bracket Racing with the K&N system,” said Thomson. “She races at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma in the Wednesday Night Drags.”
Gary began racing in 1966 and currently ranks number 1 in Jegs Allstar points. The 56-year-old Santa Rosa resident was Division 7 Super Street champion in 2003 and 2005.
Gary is headed to Tucson, Arizona next for the Lucas Oil Division 7 race. “I would like to do well,” said Gary. “I hope to qualify for Chicago.”
