Frenchville, Pennsylvania racer drives Chevy powered race car in the Big Block Dirt Modified Division
Dirt Modified racer will hit the road with K&N air filters for his next events in central New York
Del Rougeux Jr. won his first race at Mercer Raceway Park in Mercer, Pennsylvania
“The car handled perfectly everywhere I took it on the track,” said Del, whose car was not the only thing that worked perfectly for him. “We race in very dusty conditions. When I pull my K&N air filter off after a race there is absolutely no dirt in my carburetor. The seal on the K&N air filter lid also does a great job of preventing debris from passing by the air filter element.”
In addition to K&N Air filters, Rougeux uses K&N’s wrench-off oil filter. “The K&N oil filter is great, with all the movement and ruts we deal with on the track, there is never any pressure fluctuation on the gauge,” he said.
Unfortunately, Sunday was another tough night for the Rougeux Motorsports team. During a battle for the lead in his heat race, a broken rear axle forced him to retire from Sunday’s race. Rougeux faced some challenges over the weekend but said the victory Saturday night was one that was much needed.
Another busy weekend of racing is ahead for Rougeux and his team. They’ll be traveling to central New York for two more races in Brewerton and Canandaigua before heading home to the Tri City Speedway for Sunday’s race.
