Competitors vie for the ultimate prize which is a picture of the winning vehicle on the cover of Sport Compact Car Magazine. “We appreciate the level of support provided by K&N Engineering,” said Joey Leh, Sport Compact Car Editor. “I can’t think of another facility that is this large and allows us to participate in side-by-side dyno testing. The staff is also very knowledgeable.”

Brent Mattraw, owner of a 2001 Audi S4 entered in the Street Car Challenge was also happy with the K&N Staff. “It’s awesome to turn over the keys to my car to a very professional crew at K&N,” he said. “There is never any drama and K&N people know how everything works. The group is always very helpful. The dyno room is great. I’ve used K&N Filters my whole life.”

Ed Haroutonian is competing in the 2007 Ultimate Street Car Challenge with his 1969 2002 model BMW. “My car tested very well in the first category,” he said. “I use K&N Oil Filter HP-2009, it is a great product.”

The first day is over, cars were judged by a team of experts for their presentation and engineering. Cars battle it out next at California Speedway in Fontana, California.
