NHRA Drag Racer Aaron Kinard Wins Super Comp at Firebird Raceway
Aaron Kinard won Super Comp at the NHRA Division 6 series opener at Firebird Raceway near Boise, Idaho. It was an improvement on his runner-up finish at the Phoenix, Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event a month earlier.

Kinard defeated K&N Engineering’s Vice President of Research and Development Steve Williams in the final round. Williams, winner of the 2008 Phoenix National Event in February, is a heavy hitter on the track. "Steve Williams was the toughest racer on paper that I've ever had to face," said Kinard. "I've known him for a long time and have tremendous respect for him. I missed the tree and he would have won if he had not gone red. It was a bittersweet win for me."

The NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series 38th Annual Napa Auto Parts Ignitor event was Kinard’s third win in less than a year with his 2006 Race Tech 565 cubic inch dragster. Kinard won a Southern California Super Comp Association race, the Jeg’s Sportsnationals in September and now the Boise Division 6 race.
“I started racing motocross with K&N Engineering products more than twenty years ago,” said Kinard. “My dad Larry Kinard raced too, and it’s in me.” Kinard left motocross after a bad injury, but wanted to stay in racing. “I have a cage around me in Super Comp,” he said.
The K&N Engineering sponsored racer uses K&N products on and off the track. “K&N works,” said Kinard. “My engines stay clean and are protected.” The San Marcos, California resident is first in his division and ninth in the national in Super Comp.
“My car ran perfect at Boise,” said Kinard. “When I lose it’s because I screw up, it’s not my car.” Kinard will head to a Super Comp Association race, then he goes to Fallon, Nevada.
