This February 24th the 2011 NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing season begins and along with it the 27th annual K&N Horsepower Challenge resumes, the exceedingly unique and high-status race-within-a-race.  The season long quest for points is the most hotly contested battle among Pro Stock racers as they compete for one of seven guaranteed spots in the most prestigious race of the season. And as a result of its widespread popularity last year, K&N officials have confirmed that for the second straight year, the eighth and final spot will once again be filled by a popular vote.

The K&N Horsepower Challenge pits the seven NHRA Pro Stock racers who have accumulated the most qualifying points over a series of races, and one driver selected by the fans, in a three-round, high-dollar shootout, with the winner pocketing $50,000, the single largest purse all season. The runner-up will earn $10,000 and two semifinalists will earn $3,000. The four first-round finishers will receive $2,500 each.

The best part is that you needn't be a racer to be a part of this celebration of the "factory hot rods." Entry to the K&N 2011 Horsepower Challenge Sweepstakes began on January 25th and ends on May 27, 2011, which leaves plenty of time to enter. You don't have to purchase anything but you must be at least 18 years old to enter.  For complete official rules see the rules page.

You can only enter once, and that will be checked, so don't even attempt to finagle around it. Then, on May 30, 2011, the eight Finalist Prize winners and one Alternate Finalist Prize winner, will be selected in a random drawing conducted under the supervision of The National Sweepstakes Co., an independent judging organization, whose decisions are based on their sole discretion and interpretation of these official rules, which can also be found on the K&N website, and they are final and binding in all respects. Odds of being selected as a Finalist, or Alternate Finalist, and winning a Finalist Prize, are of course dependent upon the total number of eligible entries received.

Go to to enter and you could get selected to go to K&N Horsepower Challenge events and the big race. How easy is that, right, being that as a fan going to the events is precisely what you want to do in the first place. It's a win, win, within a win.
