RIVERSIDE, CA, (1/21/2005) - K&N Filters and Ivan Stewart have signed a multi-year agreement that positions K&N as the Official Air Filter and Oil Filter of the Ivan "Ironman" Stewart Protruck® Racing Series.

The agreement officially took effect at the SCORE Laughlin Desert Challenge, January 13-16th.

"K&N's earliest products were designed for off-road racing more than 35 years ago and we have worked with Ivan "Ironman" Stewart many times in the past," commented K&N CEO Steve Rogers. "When Ivan came to us and said he wanted K&N to be the Official Air Filter and Oil Filter of his Protruck Racing Series we were excited about the opportunity to work together. Racers provide valuable input on the performance of our products and off-road racing is probably the most demanding proving ground for any product - especially filters. K&N uses feedback and testing from our racing efforts in the development and improvement of our products for street vehicles so we view partnerships like ours with the Protruck Racing Series as a natural extension of our research and development efforts and a vital part of our goal in keeping K&N as The World's Best Air Filter."

Ivan "Ironman" Stewart added, "Everyone knows K&N is the best choice for off-road filters. Their reputation has been top notch for decades and we are proud to have the K&N name associated with the Protruck Racing Series."

Ivan "Ironman" Stewart is the series founder of Protruck Racing Organization (PRO). Protruck is a "spec" racing series with the highest potential purse rewards of any dessert style racing class. The Protruck uses the latest technology in space frame construction to provide a high performance race truck, disguised under a stock appearing body, with body specific V-8 engine combinations. The trucks are designed as durable, cost efficient, dual purpose racing vehicles that work both as a short course and long course, high-speed racers. The popular Protrucks race as a special class at various events including the Best In The Desert, SCORE and the 500 & 1000-mile Mexico races, as well as in stand alone "Protruck Only" events.
