After three days of stiff competition Cohen’s 2005 dragster came through for the veteran racer who has a long list of wins. Cohen also races a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am in Super Gas.

The 48-year-old Dade City, Florida resident started Bracket racing in 1979 and never looked back. He’s won 10 Division Championships, 3 World Championships, 14  NHRA National Events and 12  IHRA National Events.

Cohen said he uses K&N Engineering’s Performance Gold Oil Filter (HP-5001) in his vehicles. It is designed with drilled safety wire holes for racing and a sturdy one-inch wrench nut to make oil filter removal quick and easy. “The K&N filter goes on quick and comes off quick,” he said. “I’ve never had one collapse.”

K&N’s Premium Performance Gold Oil filter has thick canister walls for extra strength and durability to fill a need for racers. The walls reduce the risk of damage from loose rocks and debris.

“The K&N filter works well,” Cohen said. “We’ve never had any problems.” Cohen’s daughter Shelby, 15, is racing in Stock Eliminator. “We’re a busy family,” he said. “I race, my daughter races and there is work in between. I also build a new car every year.”

Cohen’s next two races are coming up. “I have a divisional race in Georgia and then it’s off to the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series in Belle Rose, Louisiana,” he said.
