Danny Prather started riding atv's at 3 years old, a time when most of us are just learning to ride tricycles. Growing up going to the desert with his family and watching his Dad and Grandfather race desert races instilled a passion in young Danny for off-road racing. His dad, Scott Prather, raced atv's and Danny managed to convince him at age 15 to build a 250r fourtrax out of some spare parts. From there they went racing and won a few local AMA district 38 desert races. At 16 Danny raced the Baja 500 with Greg Row and earned a second place finish; which is quite an accomplishment for a 16 year old. Ever since that great finish, Danny told us "I have been drawn to off road racing and the fun family atmosphere at the races."

Danny had a long list of wins and championships since age 16 including 2006 & 2007 SCORE Overall ATV and Class 25 points champion, 2009 & 2010 Best In The Desert Quad pro champion, and a bunch of AMA District 38 desert racing wins. We asked Danny to name a few of his most memorable moments and he said "In 2003 I teamed up with Mike Cafro and Temecula Motorsports. We raced together for 6 years racing in SCORE Baja races as well as Best in the Desert races. In 2006 with the support of American Honda we won first overall atv in the SCORE Baja 500 and the next 5 consecutive races including 2 Baja 1000's that were point to point down the entire Baja peninsula."

In 2006 Danny's teammate, Dana Creech, was using K&N filters and Powerlids and convinced him to make the switch. Once Danny started using K&N products he started winning races and championships. He told us he can't help but to feel that's not a coincidence, adding "I will always use K&N filters in my race machine and personal vehicles. K&N Powerlids and air filters allow us to have quicker pits stops, better filtration and a lifetime of reliability. The Powerlids increase hp, air flow and are very easy to change. Races like Vegas to Reno or the Baja 1000 require changing air filters about every 200 miles. With the K&N Powerlid our team can run the entire race without having to change any saving us time and keeping our engine dust free." If Danny can rely on K&N's performance and longevity in dessert conditions then the rest of us can rely on K&N during our daily commutes.

Danny is looking forward to 2011, more wins, additional championships and K&N filters and Powerlids to help him get there!
